All of the necessary tools, equipment, and materials?including mirror glass, millefiore Venetian glass, shells, and pebbles?are explained in detail, accompanied by helpful hints on how to best set up a comfortable work area and display finished work. Detailing the basic math of scaling, the guide also explains a variety of methods for enlarging drawings and patterns, such as grids, pantographs, and overhead projection.
