Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Dimensional finishes are raised decorations on flat surfaces that give a three-dimensional effect. The step-by-step projects in this book use dimensional paint produced by Delta Technical Coatings that is applied in the manner of thick paint or cake frosting and dries to a hard-finish design (the paint can also be used as a self-grout for mounting mosaics). Projects are for beginners and include decorated furniture, household items, and walls. This book on a relatively new craft will be welcome in public libraries.
