"Modern Acrylics Handbook Materials, Techniques, and Contemporary Applications for Today's Artists Written by Rheni Tauchid This new, sophisticated, comprehensive reference book will inspire and instruct painters on how to handle today's acrylics in innovative and individualistic ways. Acrylics have grown into the most adaptable art material for the modern age. Developments in the pigment industry have given acrylics a remarkably permanent, rich, and abundant palette, making it the favorite medium of many contemporary artists. As colors are being developed, their chemical components are also enhanced for better texture and handling. Readers of Modern Acrylics Handbook will learn how to create lush textures, vibrant colors, and sensuous surfaces with acrylic paints and mediums. In addition to traditional techniques, such as glazing and staining, this book demonstrates fresh applications, including soft sculpture, printing, and mosaics. A gallery of art from today's top artists working with acrylics is also featured for further creative insight and inspiration. Acrylics are not what they once were, but are in fact benefiting from an evolutionary process that no other paint medium has had the luxury to experience. They are the first truly modern paints because each component of their chemistry continues to evolve as our technology and knowledge expands. Those who paint, those who teach painting, and those who are learning to paint are all looking for the same thing: a paint that will stand up to just about any task it is given. In acrylics, artists have found answers to many problems left unaddressed by other mediums"--
