9780890099094: Paint Finishes

PAINT FINISHES HOW TO RAG-ROLL, SPONGE, MARBLE, STIPPLE, WOOD GRAIN AND CREATE OTHER SPECIAL PAINT EFFECTS Paint Finishes opens up a vast range of visual possibilities to the home decorator - from dragging and combing to wood graining and Trompe L' Oeil. Whether you want to bring an old table back to life or jazz up a wall, pick out a cornice or make your staircase look like marble, this practical handbook shows you how to achieve intriguing and dramatic effects on a wide variety of surfaces. Many of these techniques have traditionally been the preserve of the professionals, but this book demonstrates that they are easily accessible to the careful amateur. Clear, down-to-earth instructions on planning - choosing a color scheme, buying tools and materials and preparing the surface - and execution - a wide range of techniques ranging from basic broken color methods to advanced representational and fantasy effects - ensure results. Tricks of the trade and hints on using particular effects to mask problem surfaces complete the picture. Lavishly illustrated, this book will open your eyes to the wealth of opportunities for using paint to great effect.
