A great collection of ideas for experimentation

I read this book cover to cover in 2sittings and will keep it as a reference for those days when my muse will not show herself. I got a laugh out of the materials list for each project, no wonder my art studio is so full!

Very interesting book about making art with diverse and unexpected materials with a lot of experimentation.

For art books I give it a 5 if I would like to own it and this one is so cool! So many different surfaces to work on - resin, metal, clay, wax, leather, wood and more. It is a great book to refer back to when someone wants to try a new technique.

Terrible book, nothing new to say, and blurry pictures. Not artistically blurred either. I'm really glad I got it from the library.
