Love the look of custom paint finishes? Don't have a clue how to start? Brush up on all the basics with Faux and Decorative Painting, a beginner's guide to the newest techniques in decorative painting. Get all the latest info on trendsetting colors and today's high-style finishes. The 225 how-to photos illustrate the most sought after techniques, from exotic-sounding faux bois and shar-pei to extremely subtle but dramatic effects. You don't need fancy equipment, either. Alternative applicators include cheesecloth, crumpled bags, sponges, and easily modified brushes. Special attention is devoted to large wall spaces to create a finish that's magically 'seamless' even when painted in sections. A great beginner's guide for masterpiece-quality results.
