Praise for the hardcover edition: "The ultimate reference for stenciling." -Booklist

With the simple stencil -- a template that lets you easily create a painted shape on a surface and allows you to repeat the exact pattern wherever and as often as you wish -- you can transform and beautify just about any surface from boxes to walls to floors.

The Complete Stenciling Handbook is a compendium of the latest techniques, tools, equipment and materials. The book presents innovative methods and products that have taken stenciling from a rustic craft to a breathtaking art form. The book features a wide range of step-by-step projects illustrated with color photographs.

Buckingham comprehensively covers the materials needed for successful stenciling projects and explains the qualities of a variety of media such as the differences between latex and oil paints. Clear, easy-to-read text simplifies the often confusing world of materials such as additives, matting agents, glazes, stains, thinners, finish coats and more. The book also includes instructions about when and how to use applicators such as brushes, rollers, sponges and airbrushes.

Creative topics with step-by-step instructions cover: - Shading and paint effects - Traditional borders and all-over patterns - Freeform stenciling and projection stenciling - Imitation textiles - Architectural elements, fake marquetry - Floor treatments, glass and ceramic tiles - Lettering and stenciling on fabric and paper.

The Complete Stenciling Handbook is the best and most comprehensive guide for crafters from beginner to advanced.

The Complete Upholsterer: A Practical Guide to Upholstering Traditional Furniture Total Hits - 231  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (0)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating

This is a guide intended for the experienced upholsterer who works with antiques and period furniture. Part of the book is devoted to a history of styles of upholstered furniture from the 17th to the 20th centuries so that upholstery restoration may be made as authentic as possible. Sections on equipment, techniques, and projects assume some expertise in order to achieve professional results. Although not as practical for the home craftsperson as a basic guide like Michael Torelli and Ellen Haggerty's Reupholstering for the Home Craftsman (1977), this is an elegant, useful book for the antiques restorer. Recommended for decorative arts collections.
- Constance Ashmore Fairchild, Univ. of Illinois Lib., Urbana-Champaign
