Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The acrylics of today have grown into the most adaptable art material of the modern age. Focusing on a popular art medium that has been around for over 50 years, The New Acrylics illustrates how artists can create lush textures, color, and luster with the modern acrylics readily available in any art supply store. These are nontoxic, environmentally sound, and exist in the most dazzling array of chemical formats—from the most fluid to the highly viscous. Not only do artists paint with acrylics these days, they can create rich metallic effects, or even 3-dimensional sculptures.

Traditional technique based books on acrylics cover traditional methods of painting. However, The New Acrylics is geared toward more nonconventional ways in which to manipulate modern-day acrylics, and demonstrates new applications such as glazing, textured effects, soft sculpture effects, or staining, thus reinventing the old way of handling acrylics, and revealing a fabulous new artistic medium.

The underlying theme of this dazzling and sophisticated book is to encourage artists to interpret and handle acrylic paints in a vibrant, fresh, and above all, individualistic style.

Book News Annotation:

Over the past 50 years, acrylic paints have evolved into a viable artist-grade medium of the highest level. Tauchid provides a guide for both new and experienced artists who have little or no experience with acrylics. Coverage includes an overview of the medium, materials and equipment, color range and qualities, mediums and grounds, basic and alternative application techniques, and the use of acrylics to create decorative objects. The text is illustrated throughout in color, and includes ten step-by-step demonstration projects of specialized uses of acrylics, including a faux metallic surface, a stained glass panel, acrylic transfer painting, silk screen and monotype printing, and 3-D objects. Tauchid is a practicing artist and a member of the product team for a manufacturer of acrylic artist paints and media.
