All About Techniques Series - All books in this series

Art instruction books in this increasingly popular series are written especially for advanced students and professionals. They present a virtual treasure house of techniques that, when mastered by the artist, produce a finished artwork that has an unmistakable professional appearance. This title analyzes and describes the wealth of exciting possibilities available to artists who paint with plastic-based pigments, or acrylics. These pigments can be used to imitate the qualities of other media as diverse as oils and watercolors, while retaining a quality and brightness that is all their own.

From the reviews:
“The book is a delight for anyone interested in acrylics and definitely a worthy acquisition for teen collections and art departments anywhere.”
—Delia Culberson, VOYA, February 2005

“The art world is awash in books on oil and watercolor painting but parched for those on acrylics. This one is a fine addition to the field. …this volume is both comprehensive and spirited. Highly recommended for advanced art students.”
Library Journal, November 2004

“Richly illustrated,…a worthwhile reference for the skills and techniques-oriented high-school student.”
School Arts Magazine, March 2005
