Decorative Painting for the First Time
"Students in decorative painting classes as well as people trying painting on their own will find this a useful guide. A good selection."--Library Journal
Take a decorative painting course right at home! This entry in the popular series walks you through the basics of decorative painting and carefully builds skills with a collection of sequential projects. Practice making scrolls on a filigree platter, and see how to use the chiseled end of a brush to make a palm trees bathroom set. Work with splattering on a snowman candy dish, and stippling on a honey bear plate. A selection of more complex projects helps you move beyond the basics.
