Publisher Comments:

Rheni Tauchids bestselling The New Acrylics is an invaluable overview of modern acrylic paints. Her follow-up, New Acrylics Essential Sourcebook, is an in-depth, must-have resource for todays acrylic artist. By guiding you to a higher level of adeptness and fluidity in the handling of your materials, it brings you closer to true mastery of the medium.

Moving beyond a focus on the technical properties of acrylic paints, this new book opens your mind and eyes to the artistic possibilities that are uniquely suited to the medium. Once you become familiar with what acrylic paint is, you are ready to explore what it can become. Focusing on specific technical and application processes, this invaluable handbook demonstrates the many techniques used to produce the varied effects and painting styles that you can achieve with this most versatile of all painting media.

Clearly and beautifully illustrated with photographs of the techniques and effects, as well as stunning work by the author and other leading acrylic artists, this book expands the breadth of your potential as an artist by giving you a deeper understanding of the essence of your medium.

Book News Annotation:

Tauchid, an accomplished artist, product developer, and lecturer, follows up her first book, The New Acrylics, with this guide for acrylic artists. The author goes beyond a focus on the technical properties of acrylic paints to explore the artistic possibilities they provide. This book includes specific technical and application procedures and the many techniques that can be used to produce the effects and painting styles for which acrylics are noted. The book is profusely illustrated and includes a glossary. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Rheni Tauchid's bestseller "The New Acrylics" was an overview of modern acrylics. Her "New Acrylics Essential Sourcebook" is a more in-depth resource for today's working acrylic artist.

"New Acrylics Essential Sourcebook's" main focus is on the vast array of paints and paint mediums that are available today. It places special emphasis on documenting a variety of paint and medium combinations, showing in side-by-side comparisons how such "recipes" can alter and affect the final result. Because acrylic paints are available in so many formulas, ranging in consistency from liquid to high viscosity, the range of effects and painting styles is virtually infinite. The choice in mediums is even greater, and can be used to create glazes, build texture, and work as gluing agents for collage. Through the author's own artwork and that of leading acrylic artists, each effect is gorgeously illustrated.
