Comments: The Paint Effects Bible was a hit with the whole family!
I purchased the Paint Effects Bible as a birthday gift for my daughter who is an Interior Design major. Before I could get it wrapped, my husband and I ohh'd and ahh'd over it. After it was opened, the birthday girl had to wrest it away from her uncle! I'm sure more copies of this great reference book will turn up in the family libraries in the near future! This book truly has to be seen to be believed!

Comments: I wish this book had more practical recipes
Although I liked the general layout of this book, it fell short in providing actual how-to recipes. I have had this problem with many books on the subject of faux painting. I finally did a little research on the Internet and came across Sandra's Recipe Cards - 20 unique faux finish designs with how-to, step by step instructions on the back. Faux Like a Pro publishes these cards and they can be found online at www.fauxlikeapro.com.

Comments: Easier methods available
Although I liked the general layout of this book, it fell short in providing actual how-to recipes. I have had this problem with many books on the subject of faux painting. I finally did a little research on the Internet and came across Creative evolution's online "how- to's". Plenty of unique faux finish designs with how-to, step by step instructions made easy. Creative Evolution's free online tutorials can be found at www.creativeevolution.net.

Comments: decent
Even though it is very well illustrated.
it is very simplistic and leaves much to be desired.
the basics of color section was the most insightfull part of the book.
the techniques are ok,but only.A notch above that insider trading ex-con's TV show.

Comments: Best Source for Paint Effects I have seen yet!
This is the ultimate 'cookbook' for redecorating with paint. Within the guide you'll find 100 paint finish techniques with great illustrations, very EASY to follow, clearly spelled out directions to achieve the effects you want. The necessary supplies are listed to make shopping simple. This book has a flip chart feel to it making it easy to keep your place without the pages flipping while yo are working.

Comments: A very cool book
I have many books on paint effects and this is one of the best I have seen. The photographs and instructions are very clear and some of the finishes I have never seen before. If you are going to buy one book on faux finishes, this should be it.
