4.0 out of 5 stars Colour Mixing Recipes 3 Nov 2009
Format:Hardcover
After many years experimenting with colour mixes I have found the solution with this book. I paint miniatures with oil paints and I always found it difficult to obtain the desired colour. "Colour Mixing Recipes" enables me to mix the right combination of colours with ease. Highly recommended for all artists that want an easy solution to colour mixing.

3.0 out of 5 stars colour mixing recipes 4 May 2009
By Mummy D
Format:Hardcover
I don't think this book is really the best of this type. I have seen much better since buying it. Also I thought the spiral binding would allow me to turn the pages competely over, not so, this was a disappointment as this was one of the reasons for my choice when buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic for first time painters 11 Feb 2011
By Rebecca
Format:Hardcover
This book is amazing I love it! As a novice painter I had no idea about mixing paints and this book helped me do exactly that. The measuring chart at the back helps you get the colours just right and now i am well on my way to create my first masterpiece.

This is a mush have book for all new artists. It shows how to create the colours that you need for your piece.
It shows the blends required, and surprises the novice on which colours create the hue you require. Buy one, you will never regret it.
