Priscilla Hauser's Book of Painting Patterns

Front Cover
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2008 - Art - 144 pages
The acknowledged queen of decorative painting has a gift for those who love to pick up the brush: more than 200 of her most striking patterns. These are the most popular designs among Priscilla Hauser’s many students, and they include florals, fruit, folk art, garden motifs, baskets and other containers, animals, and holiday ideas. It’s a goldmine...and there’s still more, because Priscilla supplies plenty of information on using and transferring the patterns; choosing supplies; and
mastering such techniques as shading and highlighting, blending, changing colors, and finishing the piece. She also covers preparing and painting on different surfaces, from glass and fabric to wood and metal. Finally, each pattern is painted by Priscilla in color, to inspire fellow painters.
