Continuing in the vein of its companion video, Leaves and Flowers,
this dvd demonstrates some insect and bird motifs that can be used
and adapted for whimsical decorative work and garden-themed pieces.
Epps is shown creating critters such as a scorpion, a garden snail
and a dragonfly, as well as a hummingbird and two dvds of swans.
These projects range from the extremely simple to the complex, and
offer a quick way to add lots of ornamental appeal to a decorative
project. Some of these items are used by the artist at demos as
quick crowd-pleasers as well, taking only two or three heats to
complete. A brief chalkboard segment enhances the viewer's learning
opportunity by outlining the steps in creating each item, and enhanced
video and sound make Epps' instructions clear and easy to follow.
