From the Publisher
"Johnsen delivers what he promises: 12 brand-spanking-new techniques and a bunch of old favorites. A definite plus are extensive directions, not only for each technique but also for questions about color, preparation, and equipment. Good close-up color photographs make this instructional text even more valuable."--Booklist.

Library Journal
These three books give inspiration and ideas on how to use color in home interiors. Ostrow's is the most comprehensive, offering advice on paint choices (latex vs. oil), preparation, supplies and equipment, use of color, and painting techniques, such as sponging, stenciling, and cracking. Unfortunately, her instructions regarding these techniques have no illustrations. Johnsen gives a detailed view of painting techniques, covering paint, supplies, equipment, and surface preparation, with the bulk of the book containing clearly illustrated step-by-step instructions for each technique. Hilliard and Cliff offer inspiration for the professional or advanced amateur by grouping photographs of nature and home interiors by color and thus showing how nature can inspire interior color schemes. Successive chapters reveal the history of paint, color, and painting techniques bit by bit. Ostrow's and Johnsen's books are good choices for public libraries, while Hilliard and Cliff's book is good for any large interior design collection. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
