The bible is back! Now comprehensively updated, "Paint Magic" has undergone a complete makeover since it was first published in 1981. Cool, sophisticated finishes have replaced the busy finishes of the 1980s, and there has been a worldwide switch from traditional oil-based to environmentally "greener" water-based paint media. This book reflects all the changes and shows how to get started with paint projects. 140 color photos.
