Daniel Wright's enthusiasm for his subject is beautifully captured in a sequence of clear, easy-to-follow step-by-step photographs and unusual projects. Taking his inspiration from pen and ink, engraving and watercolour techniques, he demonstrates many exciting methods and traditional ways of working, creating landscapes, trees, flowers, animals and buildings. Information is include on the types of wood to use, how to prepare surfaces, working with the grain and enhancing designs. He goes on to illustrate shading and faux marquetry, and there's a section on using photographs and sketches to produce unique designs. Daniel's individual, whimsical style is the perfect complement to the objects he decorates: bowls, boxes, plates, frames, panels, a chess set, a nursery stool, and more.
