Making Decorative Screens

Making Decorative Screens

by Amanda Howes (Author)


Decorative and versatile, screens hide untidy or ugly areas, provide privacy, and act as portable room dividers. And, they're yours to create in many different looks, textures, and styles: woven with bright ribbon; inlaid with French country gingham; appliqued with flowers; or given a sumptuous leather effect. All you need to know are the basics of making a simple frame screen or the solid panel version--templates are provided, but you can buy pre-made blanks--and easy ornamental techniques. A shell-covered driftwood screen emulates the wonderful weathered quality of beach material; the richly embellished music score screen has gold leaf, script, and flowing curves; and others use papier-mache, verdigris, mosaics, faux marbling, and upholstering. These unusual pieces will complement any interior.
