Bring colour and creativity to your handmade or store bought, ties with this collection of 200 decorative designs.

Every entry features a photograph of the finished design, a charted diagram, a full list of equipment needed, and instructions in the order of work. Each design can be used in a scheme and mixed and matched with others in the book. At a glance icons indicate skill level and required techniques for each tile.

Core techniques are demonstrated with step by step photographs, from making molds, and transferring designs to decorating with paints, stamps, stencils, sgraffito and inlays.
