About the Author:

Kerry Skinner, an interior designer and crafts writer, was born in Africa. Her broad travels through the South Pacific, South America, Europe, and India have influenced her innovative techniques, applied to design commissions for Elton John, Imogen Stubbs, Harrods, and other famous clients. She currently lives in England.

From Library Journal:

Many decorative techniques books include a project that involves either decoupage or gilding, in these two books the techniques get more comprehensive coverage. Skinner provides well-written instructions to projects that include furniture, walls, floors, and decorative accessories in an eclectic, modern style with photographs to accompany each step. The techniques in Gilded Room include metallic paint effect and gilding, concluding with swatches of the range of finishes and effects that can be achieved. Paper Decorator includes papier mache, decoupage, paper mosaic, and latex resist techniques. The wealth of projects contained in each will give an amateur and more experienced crafter plenty of ideas. Purchase where there is a continued interest in decorative techniques.
