About the Author:

Annie Sloan is one of the world's most respected and innovative experts in the field of color and paint finishes for the interior. She produces her own paints and teaches in the United States and Europe. She has written many best-selling books, including The Practical Guide to Decorative Antique Effects and The Complete Book of Painting Techniques for the Home. She lives in England.

From Booklist:

Ideas, imagination, and innovation fly from Sloan's talented hands into home decorators' heads. It is simply impossible to count the creative ways in which paint is used--or decide which use is best. This guide goes beyond traditional stenciling, stippling, colorwashing, and dribbling; tackled first are different varieties of paint, a few how-tos, and recommended uses for metallic and pearlized paint. Next come the patterns, from spots and dots (stamping and spotted stone) to patination, a mellow feeling found in frottage and crackle varnish. A little emphasis is placed on brief illustrated instructions; the larger concentration of information, however, is on visuals of real life and of wonderful painted ideas. Barbara Jacobs
