After winning several blue ribbons with her original geometric designs, Jan Jenson was encouraged to teach Old World style chip carving. Students loved learning this style, but after the class they would ask for more patterns. Therefore, this book was written to provide Jan's patterns to copy, enlarge, reduce or mix and match parts to use on projects of your choosing.The techniques used are explained in full detail. First, there are practice pieces, then over 40 complete patterns, with pictures all in color. The patterns are ready to copy, rubber cement to a project, and then chip. This technique eliminates any graphite or pencil marks on your project. Using these patterns will give you very straight lines and precise cuts.
