About this title

Synopsis:

One of the first books in our new Basics of Sculpture
series. This aims to give the beginner a broad basic knowledge of how
to sculpt in wood. Step-by-step photos illustrate how to go about it,
and machinery is kept to a minimum so that the beginner can make
several pieces on a slim budget with just a few tools. The book is
filled with projects of increasing difficulty so that the reader can
progress in his or her skill level. The projects gradually become more
difficult, and in the final project power tools are introduced. This
project is also laid out as a hand tools project, so the reader can see
the differences and choose which way to do it. The book also covers the
basics needed for getting started: sourcing materials, choosing a
suitable wood for the project and planning the project. Possible
treatments for finishing off the piece at the end are also recommended,
such as using abrasives, repairing blemishes, and colouring, staining
or decorating the surface. Essentially a complete guide on sculpting in
wood for the beginner upwards.
