Experienced decorative painters looking to expand their repertoire can travel around the country taking classes from the masters--or they can learn all the secrets of the medium's "Big Brushes" in Decorative Painting: A Classic Collection. In this extensively illustrated guide, 10 of the field's outstanding teachers each share a previously unpublished project. Detailed instructions, complete line-drawn patterns, lengthy materials lists, sample color palettes, and lots of helpful tip boxes provide everything the intermediate to advanced painter needs to re-create these skillfully rendered designs. Featured artists include Sherry C. Nelson, who presents a trompe l'oeil wooden tray featuring a sparrow perched on a doorknob above a hollyhock stalk; Jackie Shaw, who offers a lazy Susan adorned with fruit surrounded by a filete design (a delightful Argentinean folk-art technique); and Priscilla Hauser, whose signature roses bedeck a wooden clock. Some of the artists work in acrylics, others in oils, and one in watercolor. Despite the comprehensive nature of the instructional coverage and the excellent how-to photos, the complexity of most of the designs and the lack of basic introductory coverage make this volume unsuitable for beginners, but dedicated decorative painters will certainly find help refining and perfecting their techniques here. --Amy Handy
