    This book contains dozens of combinations of paint, gel mediums, surfaces and the like, all creating sparkling and highly-coloured acrylic images. There is a particular emphasis on the use of metal leaf, especially gold and multi-coloured metallics.It is worth reading through all the techniques, to see how the effects are obtained; and then trying one's own variations; which is actually the whole point of the book. Nancy has obviously built up her own large "acrylo-pedia" of methods and it's up to the reader to use those as a jumping-off point for further experimentation. Excellent illustrations, photos of completed work and good instruction.

    I already own Nancy's excellent book, 'Acrylic Revolution', and decided buy this book to compliment it - I wasn't disappointed! I really enjoy experimenting with acrylic paint, mediums and textures, and this book is so informative and inspiring. This is a must-have book for anyone wanting to expand their skills and understanding of acrylics, especially when using metallic leaf and paints to create luminous effects.

    Found the information on the use of different materials very informative and useful

    Nancy Reyner has got some good ideas, but I must say, it is one of the worst written books on technique that I have read. I hope she will sit down and rewrite the book with more explanations on the techniques.

  • By Anne Lord on 12 April 2014

    This is probably the best acrylic art book that I have ever purchased. I can't wait the try out some of the techniques that Nancy Reyner describes.

    Rather too crafty and not enough art from my taste

  • By Caroline M. on 6 May 2015

    This book is brilliantly written with a level of technical information seldom seen in art books. The technical abundance greatly enhances the procedural and creative content which is powerfully rich. The images make me want to get to the studio. No I don't work for the publishers folks just giving credit where it's due. This author really knows her stuff and communicates it in clear, succinct but inspiring words. I'd give it 10 stars actually and I don't feel like that often. Careful how you turn the pages when you first get it, they are punched together for the binding and need gentle seperation.

    I have only briefly looked at the book and started to read it but it is clearly set out and is a very interesting book. I am going to enjoy reading it and using the techniques.

    By: James Nugent (Author)

    The first six chapters introduce the simple observations that can be made by the eye as well as discuss how such observations were interpreted by previous civilizations.

    However, our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades.We hope that you will enjoy this wonderful classic book, and that the occasional imperfection that it might contain will not detract from the experience.Part one examines VET s work-relatedness as education marked by social or group (rather than individual) dynamics, and is inductive and practice-oriented.This work has been selected by scholars as being culturally important, and is part of the knowledge base of civilization as we know it.
