Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Modern acrylics have created an explosion in the popularity of decorative painting. Both of these guides are aimed at the decorative painter who wants to start from scratch with an original design. Temares (Painting Floral Botanicals), owner of a decorating firm, lays out the principles of good design and explains how to develop and execute one's original ideas. Professional artist and teacher Hauser (For Whom the Brush Toles) presents exercises, patterns, and projects specifically for painting roses on a variety of surfaces, a perennially popular subject. Both books are professional quality and very detailed, with good illustrations. Both are recommended for public library crafts collections. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
