First impressions - the book is a nice size. Hardbacked and roughly 11x9" and 127 pages (incl index etc.) The pages are spiral bound and I have found this format excellent for working through the book. It either lays flat or, if I'm short of space I can stand it on end without fear of losing my place or it falling over.
The authors both very openly admit that they purely use only GOLDEN products. They also say that's just their preference and to experiment and see what works best for you. I have seen some reviews slamming them for this and I'm not sure why. I don't own a single GOLDEN product - never tried that brand, just haven't found any where I shop. I worked through this book with what I had on hand - this was Liquitex and the Winsor & Newton Galleria mediums, Kaiser Colour, Eco and Liquitex Basics paints plus my big old tub of white gesso. (I think that might be W&N too.) The techniques worked very well for me - so if you are put off the book because of the GOLDEN references and can't be bothered to see what is actually available to you - the book wont be for you. And it will be your loss.Read more ›
It's jam-packed with techniques to try, so if you're new to mixed media, the projects are exciting and inspiring. Having enjoyed mixed media for some time, my mind is buzzing with variations and ideas I want to experiment with, so this book is definitely going to stretch me as an artist.
The content is beautifully photographed throughout; the different stages of the techniques demonstrated are very clearly illustrated and easy to follow. Moreover, aside from being a user-friendly working book, I also value it as a coffee-table book to flick through and enjoy the photos of Chris and Julie's art. Win:win!
If your a 'suck it and see' artist like me, this book will really inspire!
