Embroidery

 

Again no basic knowledge, no book too. I had the chance to see some marvellous old piece of embroidering in relief.

 

I absolutely wanted to try as far back as this year 2000 : see my embroidered bunch of flowers. This creation needed 250 hours of work ; each flowers are in relief.

 

However, I discovered some books about specific embroideries and I wish to learn them by this mean in order to study this subject more seriously.

Decorative painting

 

I began decorative painting at the beginning of 2002.

 

Unfortunatelly, I didn't find basing book to learn this technique, so I must learn it by myself.

Modelling

 

I began the technique of modelling in november 2003 with air-hardening pastes.

 

It isn't like fimo and requires a very different approach, like the modelling of clay. I bought two english books about the fimo and other pastes of the same familly which gave me some informations to start.

 

You can see on your right my first small animal in paste, a young wild boar, a part of my creation "Unexpected meeting".

Marquetry

 

I have begun marquetry in April 2000 thanks to a book written by Xavier Dyèvre, restorer of furnitures at Versailles.

 

Now, I make some creations with the technique of Boulle inlaid work which interest me particularly. In the future,  I'll hope to work with materials like brass, bone, synthetic tortoise scale...

 

 

The excellent book from Xavier Dyèvre make it possible to learn marquetry.

Sewing

 

It's the only technique that I learnt because I had a degree a long time ago. Of course, I never realized antique costumes but I have basics to help me.

Creation of vegetation

 

I started this "technique" in november 2003.

 

I bought a french book named "Miniatures, scènes de la vie", which gave me a few ideas.

 

I began to realize a rose bush for the Escarpolette.

 

I didn't want to buy flowers because I never find that I search and I wanted to do it by myself.

 

In addition, it's very funny !

 

I made several other flowers and some small bough of oak with their acorns.

 

You can see The Venetian Summer for example.

Other techniques

 

Other subjects have came to add to the four great ones : spun copper, leaf gilding, papier mâché...

 

But I haven't wanted to stop here my experimentations.

 

I hope I'll learn glass engraving, tapestry (I haven't enough room to set up a loom for the moment), icon technique is also very attractive, earthenware and paper lace ("canivet" in french), and many other techniques...
