Mixed Emulsions : Altered Art Techniques for Photographic Imagery
"Mixed Emulsions" is a follow up to "The Complete Guide to Altered Imagery". "Mixed Emulsions: Altered Art Techniques for Photographic Imagery" takes a slightly different approach, bringing traditional and digital photography front and centre, showing the many ways that photographic imagery can be manipulated, not electronically, but using various art materials and techniques. The chapters explore ways to add colour (paints, oil sticks, watercolors, inks), ways to add texture embossing powders, pastes, wax and special effects (printing on unusual substrates, imprinting, photo mosaics, using tissue, fabric, cardboard). Angela Cartwright, known for her acting roles in "Make Room for Daddy", "The Sound of Music" and "Lost in Space", has been a photographer and artist for more than three decades. She reinterprets her unique handpainted photographic art with the use of acrylic, oil paints, inks, written word and ephemera.

ART INSTRUCTION Accomplished actress and artist Cartwright takes digital images, photos on film, and Polaroids and manipulates them with an array of traditional art materials and techniques. She adds color with acrylic paints, oil sticks, watercolors, dry pigments, and inks. For texture she uses embossing powders, gessoes, pastes, and wax, and for special effects she experiments by printing photos on unusual substratum, by imprinting, and by using tissue and fabric. Both books accomplish their goal admirably, and both are highly recommended
