Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0806905085, Hardcover)This book shows how to achieve 20 painted wood projects to brighten the home, using a palette with rich reds, yellows, greens, browns and black and white. The designs in the book are based on those of the Dutch communities of Pennsylvania who transformed ordinary objects into exquisite works of folk art. The projects feature traditional Pennsylvania motifs, including birds, tulips, hearts, mermaids, stars in circles, unicorns and zigzag borders. The projects, which include feathering, candle marbling, tortoise-shelling, graining, freehand brush strokes and other methods, can be carried out even by a beginner. The book is described as a decorative painting manual, a pattern source book, a technical source book and a historical celebration in one volume. It is designed to appeal to artists and to woodworkers.
