Pergamano Parchment Craft by Martha Ospina - A Review
This is a big book 96 pages! It starts from scratch for the beginner, explaining the range of Pergamano tools and equipment that are available and their use. There are also challenging projects for those with more experience, a huge range of projects: cards for different occasions, a fan, a wallhanging, gift box, mobile, tags, lampshade, 3D Christmas scene and lots more. There are also sections which show you how to extend the use of the grid patterns and motifs you have in the book.
The pictures are large and clear and the instructions are step by step and fully illustrated, the book seems to cover all the techniques. There are instructions on all types of embossing, how to use the Pergamano Easy Grid with the Diamond perforating tool, painting using felt pens, inks and paints. A complete course in the art of parchment craft.
