The acrylics of today have grown into the most adaptable art material of the modern age. Focusing on a popular art medium that has been around for over 50 years, The New Acrylics illustrates how artists can create lush textures, colour, and lustre with the modern acrylics readily available in any art supply store. These are non-toxic, environmentally sound, and exist in the most dazzling array of chemical formats - from the most fluid to the highly viscous. Not only do artists paint with acrylics these days, they can create rich metallic effects, or even 3-Dimensional sculptures. Traditional technique based books on acrylics cover traditional methods of painting. However, The New Acrylics is geared towards more non-conventional ways in which to manipulate modern-day acrylics, and demonstrates new applications such as glazing, textured effects, soft sculpture effects, or staining, thus reinventing the old way of handling acrylics, and revealing a fabulous new artistic medium. The underlying theme of this dazzling and sophisticated book is to encourage artists to interpret and handle acrylic paints in a vibrant, fresh, and above all, individualistic style.

This book explained the use of different mediums I didn't know so many mediums existed. I only now have to find out what is the equivalent of each here in Australia. I can't wait to start adventuring into these techniqued.

A comprehensive guide to many techniques,effects and inspirational ideas to help you create original artwork. Some new techniques I have not seen before utilising some new products on the market. The first half of the book gives a new artist all the lowdown on everything about acrylic paints- very informative.
