I have a few books that I used to learn this technique.

At the time I learned how to do some splicing I had the "Marlinspike Sailor" by Hervey Garrett Smith. This is a very old school book more focused on decorative rope work more appropriate for wooden boats and such but has info on splicing techniques for twisted rope or braided which was new-fangled stuff when the book was written.

Also "the Complete Riggers Apprentice" by Brion Toss has details about most every need you can think of for rigging including a lot of different splicing techniques.

Have fun learning a new skill.
