This book is not for beginners, though it does cover a few of the basics. But for those who have got the basics down and want to extend beyond the little tiles and add even more techniques (and, of course, new Tangles), this is the book you've been waiting for.
It's thin, and I'll admit I was a bit stunned at how thin, but then I opened it up, and there's so much going on on each page! Techniques (the best discussion of shading I've seen), tangles, exercises, tips, you name it!
It also discusses other uses of the tangle--such as basic printmaking, transfers, using them in journal pages, and of all the cool things, painting rocks!
Did I mention there are more than 60 new tangles? There's an index at the back for them, too, which is such a handy feature.
If you have her first book, you probably don't need to read this review to put this on your must-have list, but if you don't and you've been tangling for a while, you need this! And if you're just beginning, or need some inspiration at how amazing and dazzling they can be, you need this book! It will keep your mind and pen flying!
