Stamp Your Style On Borders, Friezes And Walls
Bring colour into the home and transform a room in minutes rather than days with this complete guide to stamping basics, which includes 25 inspirational stamp projects, step-by-step instructions and over 400 detailed colour photographs and illustrations.
Stamps, blocks and prints make home decoration both fun and easy. The book opens with a section on materials, equipment and techniques, which shows you in next to no time every skill you are going to need to make wonderful interior designs. This detailed section explains how to make stamps from wood, linoleum, foam and rubber, how to design patterns, and how to stamp different surfaces for a professional finish.
The projects section then demonstrates how to create eye-catching motifs on walls and surfaces in every room in the house. Transform a dull space into a Tuscan wall frieze, create a cool atmosphere with a sophisticated Scandinavian-influenced stamp theme, make the most of corridors, entrance halls and landings with warm all-over patterns, decorate larger rooms with stripes, floral sprigs or Medieval motifs, and bring a child's room to life with anything from polka dots or stars to tropical fish or apple trees.
Virtually any surface can be stamped from an entire room to a window-frame border highlighting a special view. There is a choice of motifs to suit any taste from folk art and heraldry to designs drawn from the seashore, flowers, plants and stars. This essential guide to stamping designs on walls and surfaces is a must for every home decorator.
