    I only gave this book 2 stars because I felt the instructions on each treatment/technique lacked. The instructions weren't complete and when attempting techniques - they didn't turn out. To get ideas to experiment on your own without the instructions is probably the best way to use thi...

    some great basics to get you going. I would have liked a few more pages and details on each treatment. In one section there is a mention of water-slide transfer and I flipped back forth round and round to find what the hell that was and couldn't find out...it might be there and I'm mis...

    I have read a lot of art books that don't make it onto my GoodReads list, but this one is well worth listing. It has tons of good ideas, clearly and succinctly presented. There will be a page or two about a technique, then a list of variations or ways you can use that technique, and lo...

    What an incredible book this is to learn about different ways of creating mixed-media art. The book covers a lot of techniques, many of which I haven't seen in other art or mixed media books. And you really get bang for your bucks as the authors list (though not in detail) several vari...
