Sculpting in Wood by Peter Clothier

Sculpting in Wood

Description : One of the first books in our new Basics of Sculpture series. This aims to give the beginner a broad basic knowledge of how to sculpt in wood. Step-by-step photos illustrate how to go about it, and machinery is kept to a minimum so that the beginner can make several pieces on a slim budget with just a few tools. The book is filled with projects of increasing difficulty so that the reader can progress in his or her skill level. The projects gradually become more difficult, and in the final project power tools are introduced. This project is also laid out as a hand tools project, so the reader can see the differences and choose which way to do it. The book also covers the basics needed for getting started: sourcing materials, choosing a suitable wood for the project and planning the project. Possible treatments for finishing off the piece at the end are also recommended, such as using abrasives, repairing blemishes, and colouring, staining or decorating the surface. Essentially a complete guide on sculpting in wood for the beginner upwards.
