Overview

A few years ago, decorative painter Sunny Goode created Sunny’s Goodtime Paints with a single goal in mind: giving everyone the means to reproduce the beauty of old fresco plaster, stone walls, or glazed finishes in their own homes. Paint Can!—a lavishly illustrated, inspiring, and instructive primer on how to add decorative flourishes with paint—is the next logical step in her mission. She offers a complete on-the-page course called "Paint 101” and explains just what paint can do, from highlighting architectural details to making small rooms appear larger. And almost every technique is here: colorwashing, working freehand, stenciling, glazing, imitating stoneblock, and adding patterns to a surface. It’s the simple way to add color and personality to every room.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Goode (owner, Sunny Goode Decorative Arts) shares her techniques for sprucing up walls and floors. Focusing on the application of stripes and stencils, she provides practical advice with well-illustrated instructions for the projects. Although there are many paint technique books, e.g., Emma Callery's 1001 Ideas for Color & Paint, this book is a worthwhile purchase if there is continued interest.
