And, theyre yours to create in many different looks, textures, and styles: woven with bright ribbon- inlaid with French country gingham- appliquéd 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-mâché, verdigris, mosaics, faux marbling, and upholstering. These unusual pieces will complement any interior.
