Gottsegen, Mark D.
Much more than just another guide to artists’ materials, The Painter’s Handbook is an amazingly useful resource, with information on everything from the canvas up: the canvas itself, plus paper, sizes and grounds, pigments and binders, solvents and thinners, varnishes and preservatives. Dozens of step-by-step recipes for make-it-yourself paints, pastels, varnishes, gessoes, sizes, supports, and equipment take this indispensable guide way beyond the competition.
“The best recent general reference guide to studio technique, supports, sizes, grounds, paints, pigments, etc, etc. Exhaustive and fun to read.” — reviewed by Dick Wiggins.Buy Here
