Mastering Silhouettes explains all the techniques for creating both modern and period-style silhouette portraits, drawing on traditional approaches some of which date as far back as the eighteenth century, along with advice on poses and materials. Throughout, special features on the work of notable silhouette artists provide inspiration for the projects that follow. The techniques used in antique silhouettes will appeal to those who love vintage style, while projects using mixed media collage and digital photography show how the art is relevant today. The book examines silhouette art for every occasion, teaches readers the skills to make silhouettes for themselves, and provides help for those who want to commission an artist to cut silhouettes for a special occasion such as a wedding, anniversary party, festival or corporate event.
Mastering Silhouettes Paperback edition by Charles Burns
Charles Burns has made a career from silhouette cutting, first as a street artist and then at events and prestigious occasions - inc. for the Queen (at her 80th birthday party at the Ritz), the Duke of Edinburgh, Bill Clinton... to Neil Armstrong and Jamie Oliver.
