Content : Straw marquetry is a French tradition that has been forgotten for decades. More accessible than wood marquetry, it was used by the marquetry specialist as well as by the monks, convicts, and sailors, with a lot of creativity.
Cheap, easily accessible, straw marquetry quickly offers amazing results.
By playing on the shiny reflections of split rye sprigs, readers are going to make geometric patterns that they can associate depending on their desires.
Rachel Vrignaud introduces readers to this technique. Where to get straw (very easy)? What are the tools? How to prepare the sprigs of rye? Readers will find the answer to these questions and many more. They will discover the patterns (fan, herringbone, checkerboard, etc.) which will be the basis of all their achievements.
The book contains 15 varied projects that will allow people to use and combine the patterns and which will serve as a basis for developing their own style. All explanations are accompanied by detailed step-by-step instructions. Very quickly, thanks to this book, they will be able to magnify all kinds of objects, by playing on the natural gloss variations of this material.
A book for beginners and intermediates.
