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 you need to cut, shape, and piece stunning 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.
