Editorial Reviews


''If you've been in New Mexico more than a month or so you've probably seen examples of tin craft. It's used to fashion frames, candle holders, ashtrays and all kinds of decorations. This booklet provides complete instructions, clear illustrations, attractive patterns and advice on how to best use your own imagination.'' --Fern Lyon, New Mexico Magazine

''Receiving her inspiration and training from earlier artisans who were influenced by the simplistic but powerful native Southwestern tin crafts found on crosses in cemeteries around Big Bend National Park, Fern Rae Abraham hoped that this title would help her readers discover the joy in working with tin. This metal is truly versatile and plentiful. Basic solder can be used in its construction. Tin Craft is tailored to those who might wish to try their hand with a minimum of expenses. There is a ready supply of tin cans, with larger containers being available if one is industrious enough to befriend the cleanup crew at a larger restaurant. Common household tools can be used, with the exception of a soldering iron. But its cost will be offset because one can use inexpensive acid-core solder to do most any assembly task. The title abounds with excellent ideas concerning decoration and ideas for frames and such. But its real strengths are the simple but powerful designs (flowers, leaves, birds, Nativity motifs, etc.) that are included. The goal in such presentations is to make readers aware of the possibilities and to hopefully influence them to experiment and try their own creations. This is clearly a delightful book that offers the reader the potential of many hours to have some fun in the design and manufacture of their own tin creations.'' --Chuck Hamsa, Recreating History

From the Back Cover

The colorful tin decorations seen throughout the American southwest and Mexico are the inspiration for exciting tin craft projects you can make yourself. In Tincraft, author Fern-Rae Abraham introduces the marvels of this economical and satisfying pastime. Taking advantage of the wonderful colors and shiny surfaces of easily available commercial tin cans, the author gives detailed instructions for projects with patterns for you to trace, cut out, and solder into delicate sprays of daises, exotic lilies, birds to hold up festive swags, and sparkling holiday angles.
