Overview

This complete collection of paint recipes offers the ultimate solution to creating exciting and achievable interiors.  Easy-to-follow methods and expert advice on using inexpensive materials make these home decorating techniques accessible to everyone.

The medium of paint is one of the oldest forms of decoration and simple techniques have been used across the ages to embellish interiors and artifacts—from the primitive cave paintings of our ancestors and wreath-painted pillars of Rome to the trompe l'oeil panels and stencils of the first settlers in America.  Nowadays, with an even more versatile range of paint materials available, the possibilities of color and texture are endless.

This book contains all you need to get started, with expert advice on selecting and using the right equipment and a catalog of paints, glazes and varnishes from which to choose.  Over fifty different paint treatments—including ragging, faux wooden finishes and colorful patterned effects—are demonstrated, using step-by-step photographs and well-thought-out instructions.  From simple, broad contemporary stripes on a wall to antiqued accessories and stylish marble floors, there are methods to suit all levels of expertise and every kind of decorative style.

With the techniques at your fingertips, you can take inspiration from the specially created room settings.  There are over twenty to choose from, including a Neo-classical Bathroom, a Japanese Living Room, a Seaside Kitchen and a Renaissance Hallway, each with its own set of photographed step-by-step instructions taking you through all the stages—from preparing surfaces to transforming the walls and furniture.

With everything you need to know contained in one authoritative volume, Paint Effects Masterclass offers foolproof instructions and unlimited design potential to enable you to create your ideal home.  Open up the pages and be intoxicated by the wealth of inspirational ideas.
