View all copies of this ISBN edition:

By the authors of "Decorative Paint Techniques", this book aims to answer the need of more sophisticated readers, nostalgic for the authentic paints, colours and effects of the past. Practical instruction is given on using traditional paints and on decorating, painting and "ageing" furniture to blend with traditional decorative schemes. There are step-by-step photographs on milk and organic paints, limewashing, gesso, tempera, decoupage and crackle-varnish, and photographs and still-life spreads of pigments and ingredients, to illustrate the use of traditional paints and authentic colours in houses from different periods and countries. Also included is information on what paints are available in the UK and USA, where to obtain and how to use them, and simple organic paint recipes.
