"Basic Raised Paste" is a two-tape boxed set that runs two and one half hours. In it, Barbara shows you how to get started in raised paste and how to create a project -- a small box.

These tapes take you from designing your project step-by-step through raised paste application, gold application and polishing and enamel embellishments to the raised paste. The boxed set includes a black-and-white design to guide you when planning your work. It's like having a private lesson that you can repeat over and over again. The 2-tape set makes a great gift and is a great companion to any of Barbara's books.
