This book contains dozens of combinations of paint, gel mediums, surfaces and the like, all creating sparkling and highly-coloured acrylic images. There is a particular emphasis on the use of metal leaf, especially gold and multi-coloured metallics.
It is worth reading through all the techniques, to see how the effects are obtained; and then trying one's own variations; which is actually the whole point of the book. Nancy has obviously built up her own large "acrylo-pedia" of methods and it's up to the reader to use those as a jumping-off point for further experimentation. Excellent illustrations, photos of completed work and good instruction.
