This unique book is an inspirational guide to one of the most fascinating aspects of interior design: the art of illusion and other specialist decoration.

Roman, Greek, and Renaissance murals, pastoral scenes or oriental landscapes, fantasy scenes, and faux painted effects appear here in both small and large scale--in grand hotels, movie theaters, modern urban apartments, and eveyday or rustic homes.

Marvelous Murals You Can Paint Total Hits - 971  |  Hits Today - 3Rating:   Rating Average (14)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
From cave painting and Pompeian houses to the wallpaper scenery of a quarter-century ago, murals have come and gone from the home. These two books are evidence of a recent resurgence. Marvelous Murals is a good, straightforward manual for mountain scenes, woodlands, waterfalls, musical themes, underwater motifs, and farm scenes. Beginners will appreciate the progressive difficulty of the exercises, starting with room preparation and simple silhouettes and advancing to complex textures and perspectives. In Trompe l'Oeil Murals Using Stencils, Royals hopes to make it possible for the novice to achieve the heightened reality of the genre using the simplest of tools and methods. She begins with preliminary tryouts and small-scale projects for faux surfaces, like used brick, stone blocks, velvet drapery, and marble. Six major projects take on arched brick windows, lattice windows, limestone niches, etc. Both of these books are recommended for crafts collections. More advanced artists will also want Sarah Hocombe's challenging Fresco Painting for Home & Garden
