Description - Redoute's Finest Flowers in Embroidery by Trish Burr
Redoute's Finest Flowers in Embroidery brings to life in surface embroidery the timeless, original flower paintings by the famous French artist, Pierre Joseph Redoute. The style of embroidery is unique in it's use of certain aspects of traditional and modern surface techniques, together with raised and padded areas and small amounts of stumpwork, to create a realistic 3D effect, which lends itself perfectly to the formation of flower studies.
The main aim of this book is to provide the user with the simplest means to achieving the most professional finish, and to this end detailed step-by-step instructions, diagrams and coloured photographs accompany each of the 18 projects, making them suitable for both beginners and advanced stitchers alike.
