Synopsis

Explore the use of acrylic textural finishes for home decor projects and wall art. Versatile acrylics can be applied as washes, glazes, pastes, or putties to a variety of grounds, including wood, paper, cloth, canvas, and polystyrene. Their unique qualities allow them to be used to create forms that reflect the textures of the natural world. The text introduces the creative process, explores the tools used, and then takes readers through each texturing method. The techniques, demonstrated in over 290 colour photographs, include crackle, polystyrene relief, thick impasto, scratching, combing, mixes, embedded elements, sponging, tissue and paper textures, metallic paints, sprays, splashes, drizzles, smearing, stamping, impressions, and stencilling. The tools involved are readily available and include sticks, fingers, sponges, brushes, pallet knives, jar lids, erasers, stamps, a hot wire tool for working with polystyrene, and more. This book is for anyone who wishes to create textural art.
