 Decorative Painting for the first time
Take a decorative painting course right in your own home! Through a series of questions and answers, this latest addition to the popular “For the First Time®” series walks you through the basics of decorative painting, carefully building your skills with a collection of sequential projects. Familiarize yourself with the necessary tools and supplies, and then start learning to paint. Practice making scrolls on a filigree platter, and use the chiseled end of a brush when you make a palm tree bathroom set. Work with splattering on a snowman candy dish, and stippling on a honey bear plate. A selection of more complex projects lets you move beyond the basics, as does an inspiring gallery of advanced ideas and designs by professional artists.
