Publisher Comments:

The most versatile of paints, acrylics dry quickly and are suited to large canvasses and delicate miniatures, outdoor landscapes and indoor still lifes. Artists can use them in any consistency they wish -in thin washes like watercolors or in thick slabs they can apply with a knife. With this unique A-Z guide, painters will be inspired to practice blending, dry brush, glazing, masking, scraffito, spattering/stencilling, texturing, and much more. Mix acrylic with charcoal, ink, or watercolors. Choose the most suitable painting surfaces, and find out how to make collages. A gallery of paintings that illustrate a variety of styles shows how the techniques are applied. Artists can pick from a variety of themes: landscapes, buildings, the human figure, animals, and abstraction/fantasy. Whether you're a novice painting for the first time or an artist in search of new techniques, you'll find a wealth of ideas.
