Extract from back cover of book:
Using over 230 brilliant color photographs, paint color charts, and precise patterns, Leah Wachter provides woodcarvers with all the information necessary to create incredibly detailed small animals from basswood that are big on character. Step by step instructions accompanied by detailed color photos lead the woodcarver successfully through each step of a field mouse carving project. Woodburning and painting techniques are also presented with the same attention to detail.
Information and patterns are also provided for carving an armadillo, skunk, and raccoon that are both highly detailed and terrifically animated in their appearance. A color gallery at the back of the book provides further inspiration with detailed looks at each completed creature. This book will be a joy for carvers of all levels, providing challenges for the newcomer and tips sure to fascinate more experienced artists.
