Starting with a morning glory, this guide offers step-by-step instructions on how to carve and texture the flower and ideas for creating a beautiful finish with paints.

Also included are close-up photographs of real flowers showing the variations in bloom, petals, and leaf groupings, as is a detailed examination of the power tools a woodcarver needs to create realistic carvings, including the bits and burs, flexible shaft machines, handpieces, and dust collectors. Wanda teaches you how to incorporate new skills while learning to carve the simple star-patterned petals then move on to the fringed petals, and finally carve the delicate nesting petals.  You will thoroughly enjoy this book with Wanda Marsh's guidance you can create these stunning and beautiful flowers that look so natural and real.
