Many thanks go to cyber friend, Seth Apter, authored of the renowed blog The Altered Page ,The Pulse of Mixed Media and soon to be released The Mixed-Media Artist: Art Tips, Tricks, Secrets and Dreams from Over 40 Amazing Artists for this amazing review today of our book
Acrylic Solutions: Exploring Mixed Media Layer by Layer . Julie and I couldn't be more thrilled at how the book is being received. Take a look at what he says:
"There are a lot of books available these days to choose from but my sense is that this one will become a classic. It contains easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions so that you not only learn about product and technique...but you can quickly apply the material to your own artistic practice.
Of the many tutorials, my favorites include mixing and working with glazes, creating a good foundation, using mediums to create texture, using transparent images, and developing complexity (which itself is 26 pages).
Both Julie and Chris each take you through the process of creating their own artwork, following along step-by-step as they introduce new materials and techniques. Happily, this book is hard back and spiral bound so it can lay open flat when you are referring to it. It includes beautiful images throughout of artwork from both of these talented artists. While beginners will easily be able to follow the instructions, this book would also truly benefit the more seasoned artist as well... To be eligible to win, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post by end of day Thursday 5/18 and make sure that I have your email address. I will announce the winner on both my blog and my FB page. Good luck!!"
