Overview

Explore the use of acrylic textural finishes for home decor projects and wall art. Versatile acrylics can be applied as washes, glazes, pastes, or putties to a variety of grounds, including wood, paper, cloth, canvas, and polystyrene. Their unique qualities allow them to be used to create forms that reflect the textures of the natural world. The text introduces the creative process, explores the tools used, and then takes readers through each texturing method. The techniques, demonstrated in over 290 color photos, include crackle, polystyrene relief, thick impasto, scratching, combing, mixes, embedded elements, sponging, tissue and paper textures, metallic paints, sprays, splashes, drizzles, smearing, stamping, impressions, and stenciling. The tools involved are readily available and include sticks, fingers, sponges, brushes, pallet knives, jar lids, erasers, stamps, a hot wire tool for working with polystyrene, and more. This book is for anyone who wishes to create textural art.

Title: Water-Based Texturing - Techniques & Inspirations for Artists, Teachers, and Craftsmen Author: Tucker Stouch Publisher: Schiffer Publishing Ltd Published: 5-28-2014 ISBN: 9780764345340 Pages: 112 Genre: Art & Photography Tags: Crafts & Hobbies Overall Rating: Very Good Reviewed For: NetGalley Reviewer: DelAnne A peek into different techniques to add texture to your art and craft work. It seems to give it a modern, almost abstract look. Tucker provides step by step illustrations to guide you in these new techniques. Some I was already familiar with and have used in the past. Such as stenciling page 107, Crackle Page 17, Scratching and Combing Page 57 and Sponging Page 89. Three new treatments I found interesting were Snow-Tex, page 48 and Pouncing, Page 43. Tissue & Paper Textures Page 69. If you are looking for new mediums to add to your work then you should check out Water-Based Texturing - Techniques & Inspirations for Artists, Teachers, and Craftsmen. You may be interested in using some of the techniques described as an interior design tool as well. A mountain scene on the wall add in few styles and suddenly you have a three demintional mural. So many ideas give way to so many different applications. So many yet to try.
