"Creating Art From Nature" combines years of nature printing experience between John Doughty and Sonja Larsen, both members of the Nature Printing Society -- a world-wide organization of printers. 26 chapters cover everything from using rubber stamp pads for ink, thru watercolor, Speedball and other printing inks, to using metallic powder to enhance your prints. Tools are carefully explained. Chapters begin with a materials list and preparation. Then you're taken step-by-step through the various possible procedures.
