This is the home decorators roadmap to the infinite world of color. Whether readers are looking to evoke the timelessness of Ancient Egypt, the elegance of the Georgian era, or a road not yet taken, the choices are endless, and the resulting effects are stunning. Designed to help even the most inexperienced decorator achieve success, each of the more than 1,200 different effects are detailed with paint and glaze recipes. Starting with one of 25 standard base colors, the 1,200 effects are achieved by: Mixing with 24 other colors using a sponging technique; using one, two or three colors to demonstrate dragging, spattering, stippling and combing; combining with either one, two or three other colors and color washed, stenciled, frottaged and rag rolled. Other special effects include tortoiseshell finish, malachite, lapiz lazuli, verdigris and gliding. To ensure success, the author also includes sections on preparation, materials and brushes and other equipment.
