Wonderful resources if you are interested in acrylic products and techniques. You will find dozens of ways to combine mediums and color to achieve various effects and to paint on a number of supports (paper, fabric, canvas, glass, metal). Though based on the Golden line of products many techniques can be used with other similar products. When the ingredients in certain products (such as soft modeling paste) are too different from what is found in similar products of other companies, the author makes this known. The spiral bound book makes it easy to refer to (it stays open).
This book is fabulous if you want to expand your technical know how or simply transfer your knowledge to other supports than paper and canvas.

This book has wonderful illustrations and many useful techniques to try. However, I found on using some of them that explanatory steps were missing.
For example: Technique 33, layering textures to create depth: putting down a half inch of soft gel is a lot of gel, these tubs are not cheap. Once I applied the gel I found that a lot of ridges were created from the knife. Were these ridges part of the picture or was there a way to smooth them out? When applying the paint on top of the gel I found that the brush became glooped with loads of gel, making it difficult to paint. Was the gel supposed to dry to a semi wet state or was the paint application to happen right after I applied the gel? These are questions I had no answer to. I have since tried this my own way without most of the gel and painting on a semi dry surface and it worked very well.

The author supposes that very experienced painters are reading her instructions and will know what to do. However, I am an intermediate painter and I need these missing instructions and steps.

I also noticed that only Golden Paints were shown in the illustrations. Now, Golden Paints are excellent and I use them mostly myself, but it seemed as though this was a Golden Paint book and not a disinterested party.

It is a good book for ideas but the instructions are not as good as other books I have tried.

The step by step is well laid out and color reproductions are good. But the techniques are nothing that I can use. The techniques are very dated in my option, but useful for people wanting to learn how to create a workshop level abstract painting. For example how to splatter with a tooth brush, covering a string with different colors of paint and rolling around a canvas or creating a crackled surface to "surprise" the viewer
