All about acrylics

Based in Canada, author, painter and educator, Rhéni Tauchid, is an expert in the history and development of acrylic paint. Here she describes everything you need to know about acrylic mediums and methods – from thinning and glazing to texturing and thickening. More than 20 step-by-step demonstrations are included, showing how other artists use the medium to striking effect. There’s no “single way to explore acrylic mediums,” writes Rhéni, but through experimentation and giving yourself the freedom to explore, “your paintings will gain depth, dimension, and individuality”. This book offers a contemporary and comprehensive reference guide for anyone interested in painting with acrylics and in taking their work to new levels. Acrylic Painting Mediums and Methods by Rhéni Tauchid. Monacelli Press, (h/b), £32.
