Oct 11, 2010 Lindsay rated it really liked it
The topics were hit or miss for me. The early chapters, about why you would write a technical report, were a bit dull. I thought the chapters in the middle of the book were great, especially the ones on Technical Writing Style and color theory. The chapters at the end were far too specific in application to keep my attention. I would give it three stars if it weren't for the fact that I find my self referencing the mid chapters quite a bit since I finished reading this book.

This was a very useful text book. It covered a lot of information and I can see myself referencing it again in the future. I've definitely added it to my short stack of text books I'm keeping.

“You have expressed an interest in the process used to carve detailed feathers
on realistic duck decoys. The tools used are the same ones needed to prepare
the carving up to this point: flexible-shaft grinder, stone bits, soft rubber
sanding disc, pencil, and knife. My intention is to explain the ease with which
mastery of this process can be achieved. There are five steps involved: drawing,
outlining, and concaving the feathers, stone carving the quill, and grinding the
barbs. The key to drawing the feathers is research. Good-quality references have
been used in getting the carving to this stage and they will prove invaluable
here. When comfortable with the basic knowledge of placement and types of
feathers, drawing can begin. As with the actual carving, drawing should be
done in a systematic manner. All feathers should be drawn in from front to
back and top to bottom. Drawing should be done lightly so that changes can be
made if necessary. All of the other steps are determined by what is done here,
so the carver must be satisfied before beginning. Outlining creates a lap effect
