9780713726886: Celtic Designs: An Arts and Crafts Source Book

Acclaimed designer and author, David James takes his inspiration from a whole host of traditional artifacts. Capture the intricacy that distinguishes Celtic style, with these glorious and ancient art designs. Close-up enlargements of sections of the art will make these areas more visible, versatile, and easily copied. Patterns range from a circle containing linked knotwork alternating with solid color to an elaborate "birds of friendship" figure centered about a cross. There's a virtual art gallery of projects to make. They'll work for whatever medium and technique you use -- painting, dyes, leather, fabric-printing, enameling, wood, slate -- even pyrography! Pierce the line drawing with a craft knife to make a stencil, or transfer a design onto wood with carbon paper. Experiment with color schemes to achieve the best effect for your project. These lovely and engrossing patterns will make you glad you've joined the many who have discovered Celtic imagery!
