Overview

Anyone who has ever fantasized about having the skills to paint beautiful decorative home projects, can now make those dreams come true. Priscilla Hauser has successfully developed a technique that allows novices to learn her charming style, effortlessly. Hauser begins by teaching the most basic brush strokes, and how to use them to build a basecoat to shade and highlight until a lusciously executed design emerges. Nothing could be simpler, or less intimidating. She discusses preparing the surface, brush loading and double-loading, undercoating, stripping, washes, and other effects, and provides plenty of helpful worksheets plus quick tricks for creating intriguing background finishes. Beginners will quickly and confidently master such projects as bright sunflowers and daisies on a watering can, lemons on tableware, a bird-embellished frame, and a butterfly-covered candle lantern.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Hauser is a highly successful decorative arts teacher and writer, one of the few whose name is the first part of every title she publishes, and deservedly so. Her painting style and teaching methods have been tested over many years in workshops taught all over the world and featured in a shelf-full of books. Here she offers a detailed introduction to acrylic paints; brushes; basic information on transferring patterns, flyspecking, and finishing; and worksheets on brush strokes and painting techniques. The bulk of the book consists of specific projects on wood, glass, ceramics, metal, fabric, and paper. Recommended for all crafts and decorative arts collections.
