Succinct with some very creative ideas and clear instructions. A good primer for those new to decorative painting. Do wish it had more image/illustrative examples.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good information 8 Jan 2013

I didn't give the book 5 stars because I would like to have seen more images describing what the different painting effects would look like. Not having a lot of experience with refinishing furniture, and not knowing the correct terminology for what effect I am looking for makes it a little more difficult to know if what I am reading is actually the desired look I am trying to achieve. I think that this book could be excellent if there were more pictures to go along with each painting effect. I still think the book is a great choice for the price. I ordered the kindle edition, but I think I would have rather had a book like this "in hand".

I bought the Kindle version, so the illustrations are not that strong, but the text descriptions of the various aging and distressing techniques are very clear and comprehensive. I am a working artist and for years have been struggling to find a way to give my work pieces a sense of age and patina, and the techniques in this book solved my problem. I am very grateful to the author for revealing what amount to "trade secrets" to the general public.
