Volume II plus patterns download version
This is a download of Volume II (part 1) of the series of manuals from Roman Mosaic Workshops.
Volume II covers how to understand motifs and borders and then how to draw them out on paper and from there onto your baseboard or floor.
The Romans created many complex and stunning mosaic patterns ranging from very simple motifs all the way through to hugely complex full floors. Certain patterns seem to have been structured in such a way that they were able to increase in size and complexity. Yet when you know what to look for in these patterns you can see how they break down into quite simple forms.
This manual is not just about how to draw these patterns out but also how to be able set a mosaic from them. There is a huge difference in being able to draw a nice pattern and having it drawn in such a way that it can be used for a mosaic.
The manual contains 32 pages with both colour images and B&W drawings.
Also included are step by step guides to some of the patterns to show you to use what you can learn from the manual. These are sent out separatley but should be with you within 2 working days.
There are seven motifs and seven borders in the pack.
