It’s easier than you think to transform inexpensive ceramic jugs or other stone containers into true works of art or turn thrift store plates into dinnerware worthy of the swankiest café. The professional advice starts with choosing equipment and stenciling the designs, followed by more than 100 color photographs showing proper use of flat, round, and liner brushes to create a range of effects. There are great project ideas and patterns for every month of the year. Try the graceful lines and striking colors of the Lilies for May,” which uses acrylic paints in a floating” technique to bring life to a drab bud vase. Or December’s Holly” design, which artfully blends accent colors to turn ordinary serving pieces into the extraordinary.

Who could challenge Hauser's title as first lady of decorative painting? Not only has she developed an impressive body of work (Priscilla Hauser's Book of Painting Patterns, 2006, among other titles), she has also been responsible for launching and building an enthusiast base through the 1972 founding of the National Society of Tole & Decorative Painters. What's more, she never disappoints. In this complete guide, nothing is taken for granted; upfront information accommodates a beginner's need for technical foundations and equipment explanations, while practitioners receive a refresher lesson or two. Creative techniques follow, each with step-by-step color photographs. Her theme this time is flowers by month, often choosing to showcase more than one type of blossom or pattern. June, for instance, features red, yellow, and pink roses that decorate plates, boxes, or vases. In February, select pansies or violets as the floral. But no matter what the specific pattern, every one of the 18 patterns includes a full-fledged set of directions: worksheet, illustrated color palette, materials, equipment, how-tos, occasional tips, and actual templates to copy. Jacobs, Barbara
