Painted Furniture Total Hits - 892  |  Hits Today - 1Rating:   Rating Average (14)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
The discovery that paint could be used to counterfeit rare or costly materials is almost as ancient as art itself. Nearly every precious or attractive natural material, from marble to wood grain, has been mimicked in paint. In Painted Furniture, Jocasta Innes, the undisputed doyenne of paint effects, reveals the secrets of faux finishes, showing you how to transform a junk shop find into an object of beauty. In more than 140 color photos, she demonstrates over a dozen different techniques --among them color-washing, combing, gilding, marbling, faux-lacquering, aging, and trompe l'oeil. Complete with 20 step-by-step projects for boxes, chairs, tables, benches, screens, and more, Painted Furniture is a book that no home decorator will want to miss. Among Jocasta Innes' many successful books are Paint Magic, The New Paint Magic, Paintability, Paintwise, The Thrifty Decorator, The Decoupage Sourcebook, The Complete Home Decorator, and Country Kitchens.
