50 dazzling techniques...for work that shines above the rest!

From the author of the best-selling books Acrylic Revolution and Acrylic Innovation, this book blazes new creative territory with 50 techniques that harness the artistic power of light. Ranging from subtle glazing on metal leaf, to pearly sheens, to boldly colored optical effects and glossy surfboard finishes, these approaches represent the most requested aspects of Nancy Reyner's popular workshops.

   • 50 eye-catching techniques feature metal leaf, reflective paints, pouring, fluorescent and phosphorescent paints, refractive layering and optical color effects.
   • Possibilities are vividly illustrated with diverse work from 44 artists.
   • A "Crash Course on Acrylic" chapter offers an overview of how to use these versatile paints and products to their fullest potential.

This hands-on guide provides clear step-by-step directions to successfully execute these new and exciting techniques. Explore matte skin construction, sheen shifting, embedding objects, patinas and polished stone effects. Use these approaches for organic, abstract or realistic backgrounds, top layers, or accents layered in between...combine, experiment, and let your paintings shine.
