Beautiful carvings and garnishes are well illustrated in numerous photos and Thai script only (no English) in this modern new book imported from Thailand.
This book is suitable for intermediate to advanced carver with at least some experience because the instruction is only in Thai. But with the detailed photos the technique is possible to follow.
Carvings and garnishes range from basic to ornate classical Thai-style such as: carrot flowers created with cutters, simple eggplant leaves, easy cucumber baskets, elaborate watermelon flowers (as pictured on the cover), red radish stars, and even a pumpkin turkey!
