Discover the secrets of intarsia--the art of making beautiful three-dimensional picture mosaics that combine the natural colors and textures of wood. Intarsia legends Judy Gale Roberts and Jerry Booher provide all the inspiration and information readers need to cut, shape, and piece stunning wood inlay wildlife portraits. The authors explain how to choose wood--by judging its size, thickness, color, and grain--and provide expert instruction in shaping and sanding techniques. Three complete step-by-step projects are provided for creating dramatic raised images of a Bald Eagle, a Wild Mustang, and a Bull Moose. Eleven additional patterns feature a cross-section of popular wild animals. Wildlife Intarsia, Second Edition also features full-sized patterns and a colorful new photo gallery of inspiring projects.
