The Acrylic Painter's Book of Styles & Techniques


Edited by Rachel Rubin Wolf
Acrylics are famous for their versatility. They can be used straight from the tube to look like oil paints. They can be thinned with water or painting medium and used like traditional watercolors. Or they can be used with techniques unique to acrylics.

On these pages, seven top acrylic painters illustrate the versatility and creative excitement of acrylics. In 28 step-by-step demonstrations they show new techniques for mastering acrylic's many faces-from the look of highly controlled transparent watercolor, to abstract expressionism, and everything in between.

This book is a creative testament to the growing popularity of this medium and the perfect invitation for any artist who wants to explore it further.
