5.0 out of 5 stars If you want to save money, this book is for you! 21 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Yes, you may have well trained in art, but no matter how skilled you are with that colourwheel and the mixing of colours, why not take it easy and buy yourself this book. A sourcebook of over 150 paint finishes containing paint recipes for various projects including woodgraining, gilding, leather, granite, you name them this book has them, a must for the professional painter/mural artist or the keen DIY enthusiast. In fact, a must for anybody wanting to save money and mix their own glazes.
