Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
An Australian with a great deal of experience oil painting, sculpting, and carving, Rogers shows readers how to create attractive relief carvings using a simplified method in which the carved wood is applied to a flat wooden backing. This makes sense-without backing, light will pick up every surface deviation, making it difficult for beginners to concentrate on carving their design and enjoying themselves. Rogers shows how she uses a clay model to work out her design before cutting the wood; for some projects, she works the clay a little more after each cut, while for others a complete model is created before the wood is touched. Rogers's fine instructions offer a wealth of helpful tips and are supplemented by profuse color photos. Projects include floral designs, animals (e.g., a rabbit and a koala bear), and several figures. An excellent introduction for collections serving those interested in carving and crafts.
