Drawing on influences from around the world, this book demonstrates a range of brush-stroke techniques for painting decorative designs - flowers and fruit, birds and animals - on a variety of everyday objects. It includes information on preparing each object to be decorated, applying the base-coat, and special finishes. The 20 projects include a memo pad, a clock, a towel rail, boxes and trays, and larger objects such as an occasional table and a garden seat. There is a pattern and detailed instructions for each one.
This book was published in 1998 and written by Sybil Edwards, Chris Moore & Lynette Bleiler.
