Details

Cutting-edge Acrylic Techniques!

In a hands-on, workshop style, Rethinking Acrylics demonstrates the staggering range of this oh-so-versatile medium, capable of delicate transparent washes, lively impasto surfaces, and radical multi-dimensional effects. Acrylics are compatible with a wide range of materials, allowing for a virtual explosion of mixed-media artworks. There are more mediums, gels and grounds available for acrylics than for any other painting medium, affording you inexhaustible opportunities for applying pouring, brushing, scraping, squirting, swishing, rolling, flinging, sanding and what-have-you.

Discover everything you need to know to purchase, mix and work with acrylics successfully. From there, launch into chapter after chapter of possibilities: watermedia effects, creating texture with gels, subtractive techniques, collage and acrylic skins, acrylic transfers, and more.
