Painted Wood Projects in the Pennsylvania Folk Art Style
Alan Bridgewater (au); Gill Bridgewater (au)
When the Amish, Mennonite, and other German-speaking groups settled in PA from the 17th cent. onwards, they brought with them a heritage of decorative painting techniques which developed into an Amer. folk art. The PA Dutch, as these people came to be called, used colorful designs filled with warmth and charm. This book teaches you how to create their motifs, incl. hearts, tulips, hex signs, birds, and others, and use them on a wide variety of projects. Examine a variety of historical patterns, and learn to work with the materials and techniques. Select the proper paints, finishes, stains, and brushes, and find out how to prepare a surface for decorating. Explore the decorative effects that can be achieved with a variety of different painting methods. Color illus.
