Review:

--Sunset, May 1996
It seems there's no end to the interest in decorative paint treatments. Now Paint Recipes presents 50 techniques, more than 150 color mixes, and instructions for applying them to a wide variety of surfaces, including walls, floors, and furniture.

The 192-page book is both inspirational and instructional, addressing basic materials and equipment as well as custom paint "recipes" and techniques for applying them. Some techniques are familiar (such as sponging and ragging), while others (like fade-away washing, rubbed-back plaster, and loose-glaze brushing) are more unusual.
Some recipes might seem intimidating, since they require mixing your own paint color with colored powders, but the book explains how you can start with premixed paints or add pigment from artists' paints.
