|By Frank Pozsgai & Mark Downing
Frank Pozsgai is internationally known as an artist of the scroll saw. His previous books have focused almost entirely on what the scroll saw can do with wood, its most common medium. Now he takes the art up a notch to introduce scroll sawing in metal. Joining him is Mark Downing who has been working in metals for many years. Together they explore this great medium for the scroll saw.
The process is simple, and with a few extra steps, cutting is as enjoyable as cutting wood. And the results are wonderful. Because metal is pliable, it is possible to give it shape by bending it. The results include chandeliers and other decorative, but useful decorative accessories for the home. With heat or chemicals it is possible to give metal very interesting patinas that add color and character.
All is explained in clear, step-by-step instructions and illustrated in color photos. In addition, the author supplies many patterns to get you started and a gallery to inspire you.
