Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Garden writer Laura C. Martin introduces The Art and Craft of Pounding Flowers, an activity using the pigments of plants for decoration. This craft is so easy one can "simply pick a flower, place it on paper or fabric and hammer away," Martin explains. She easily guides the beginner through preparation, listing the tools needed in addition to the hammer, suggesting choices for plants darker pigments usually yield better impressions; paper and fabric with natural fibers absorb better; pretreating helps the color to take and last longer. More than 150 color photos and illus. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
Martin is well known as the author of many books on gardening and nature crafts. Although pounding flowers and leaves with a hammer seems an unlikely way to decorate paper or fabric, it produces a delicately colored image that can be used as is or embellished with ink or stitching. In addition to basic techniques and step-by-step projects for decorated household items, there is a guide to plants suitable for pounding. This is an excellent choice for libraries looking for something new to add to their gardening and crafts collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    Great book!

    Here's a great way to relieve stress AND make something beautiful! I stumbled on this book by accident in the book store while hunting for a different book; ended up standing there 20 minutes reading it. Walked away and came back to it several times, then broke down and bought it. I'm glad I did -- it's fun, easy, and uses stuff you probably already have growing in your yard. The one caution from the author -- some people's fun may not be everyone's fun! Yep, not everyone may thrill to the sound of a pounding hammer, so if you take this up, do be sensitive to folks around you. Also, watch those fingers! in my exuberance, I got carried away and pounded a thumb by mistake. (Blood stains do NOT add to the artistry of your project). Enjoy!
