This book is filled with inspiring step-by-step mixed-media projects from seven talented artists, each one sharing his or her unique style and techniques. From collage and artist trading cards to portraits and still lifes, this book encompasses both abstract and fine-art approaches to mixed media. First, the reader is introduced to traditional painting and drawing tools and materials. Next, after sharing their personal approach to mixed media, the artists guide the reader through several step-by-step projects, each one demonstrating different techniques and components. Readers will learn how to alter photographs and incorporate them into paintings and collages, how to create three-dimensional texture on a two-dimensional surface, how to balance the fundamentals of art with abstract designs, and how to create a poem out of a daily newspaper. 144 pages.
