An inventive decorative artist presents his own interpretation of several European painting styles, showing crafters at all skill levels how to create charming pieces that will complement any decor. The book begins with a brief historical survey of European folk art. The first chapter is devoted to supplies: working with acrylic paints, selecting brushes, and gathering other essential materials. After reviewing several basic painting techniques and how to correctly prepare surfaces, the author presents detailed demonstrations of the decorative painting styles of England, Norway, Holland, Germany, and Russia. The projects feature motifs traditionally painted on wood, metal, and porcelain, and incorporate a range of techniques, including decorative strokework, working wet-in-wet, and antiquing.

About the Author:

Andy B. Jones, the author of Painting American Folk Art, Painting Animals, Decorative Paint Finishes for the Home, and Decorative Painter's Guide to Fruits and Flowers, is a partner in an Atlanta-based design firm specializing in painted finishes for interiors.

From Library Journal:

Jones has taken the idea of decorative painting beyond the usual craft book into an exploration of rich European traditions. Three chapters provide excellent training in craft painting basics. The rest of this book is devoted to projects in English folk art (e.g., roses on a canal boat water can), the German Bauernmalerei style, Dutch painted woodcarving motifs, and projects based on Russian and Norwegian folk art. Jones takes historical pieces as examples and creates modern interpretations, using only acrylics. This is a diverse and lively volume for those wanting to expand on the scope of books like Gretchen Cagle's Decorative Painting Keepsakes (LJ 11/15/97).
