Making Art

Materials and Techniques for Today's Artist

Using the right tools and materials in the correct way can make all the difference in your artistic process. Making Art is a hands-on guide that outlines the many options at your disposal, so that you can make the most of your materials, your time in the studio, and your spirit of creative adventure.

Drawing upon 25 years of expertise as an art materials consultant and workshop instructor, author Ed Brickler shares his extensive knowledge of everything from classic oil and watercolor techniques to contemporary uses of encaustics, acrylic gels, markers, and more. Artists of every level can learn how to use these various media to maximum potential through 43 complete demonstrations and hundreds of close-up action photos.

Making Art covers the following topics:

  • How to use 15 popular mediums, including graphite, pen-and-ink, colored pencils, pastels, markers, oils, acrylics, watercolors, egg tempera, encaustics, and more
  • Handling tools such as sponges, erasers, brushes, palettes, painting knives, scrapers, fixatives, and transparencies
  • Choosing and working with the right supports and grounds for a given medium
  • Working in the proper ways with solvents and varnishes

The hardcover format with hidden spiral binding is both durable and easy to maneuver, as you're able to lay the book flat as you're working.
