This book shows readers how to use acrylic in a variety of ways.Acrylic can mimic oil paint, watercolour, gouache, encaustic; it can be applied in subtle transparent washes, or troweled on in heavy thick impasto, it can be as transparent as glass or as dense and black as tar, with a tar-like consistency! This book takes the most popular techniques and makes them accessible to the contemporary artist and crafter. Six different artists show the reader, using mini-demos, full demonstrations, finished examples and artist profiles, how they can use the most current techniques.
