"I spent years experimenting with machine embroidery, textile dyes, wire and a weird and wonderful collection of tools, gadgets and gizmos to evolve ways to create models of Australian Native plants that look like the real thing. Now I can call myself a Botanical Artist even though my drawing skills are almost non-existent. This book documents my methods, not as projects for the readers to follow, but as an explanation of the results of my experiments, in the hope that others might build on them and discover even better ways to create 3-dimensional Botanical Studies. Beware: you may well find the process is addictive. Lynne Stone, March 2020." -- Inside cover.
