Similar to the authors' first best-selling book, this book provides an equally impressive amount of techniques and ideas for mixed-media surface treatments.
In addition to more than 45 stepped-out techniques, Surface Treatment Workshop includes projects that combine the techniques into finished works of art. Traditional techniques as well as new applications, such as the use of WonderUnder, pulled paper, and plaster-dipped gauze are explored.
Extensive examples from both artists show how the same techniques can be used to yield very different results, and troubleshooting aids artists as they explore endless applications for their own artwork.
