Publisher Comments:

It's time to cook up some creativity

You're invited to a fanciful feast of color, textures and luscious layers that will tempt even the most discriminating painter's palette. Whether you love experimenting with your own flavors, or following a recipe to a 'T, ' Flavor of Mixed Media will be your guide to handcrafting some of your most delectable works of art yet Artist Mary Beth Shaw will share her mixed media painting techniques for working with color, incorporating many different textures, creating multiple layers, developing a distinct flavor and making all sorts of clever combinations.

In addition to home-style favorite such as collage tips and tricks, and inspiring works by dinner guest artists, other things you'll sample from this menu include:

How to experiment with color mixing and develop your own tasty triads

Achieving texture with unusual tools such as a cheese grater or stencils or icing

Clever new ways to use what's already in your art-making pantry

Creating depth to your work with cutout shapes or Plexiglas

Doodling bookmaking, collagraph printing, actual food recipes and more

Clear off the counter and get cooking

Let Flavor for Mixed Media tempt your palette today.

Synopsis:

Creative individuals are typically as passionate about food as they are making art. So while this is a mixed-media technique book, there are underlying analogies of cooking. A dinner-party setting has a guest list featuring contributing artists. You will be introduced to five chapters, or courses: Color, Layers, Texture, Flavor and Combinations. Each chapter features projects with stepped-out techniques pertaining to that chapter, as well as tabletalk (inspiring insights and constructive tips) from the guests, and sidebars (What's in Your Pantry) for ideas such as using found objects, painting over failed works and stimulating your brain when you're out of ideas. Techniques for the projects will show you how to do things like develop layers with stencils, create texture with items like a cheese grater or combine different substrates into one project.
