Focusing on specific technical and application processes, this invaluable handbook demonstrates with lush photography the multiplicity of techniques used to produce the varied effects and painting styles that can be achieved with this most versatile of all painting media. Special emphasis is placed on paint and medium combinations, giving side-by-side examples of how different combinations or recipes can alter and affect the end result. In addition, the timely issue of conservation is addressed in detail to help provide readers with working guidelines on how to approach issues of longevity in their day-to-day art practice, from starting out with the proper tools to how to clean and store the finished works.
