Library Journal Review

Innes shows how the various paint techniques she described in The New Paint Magic (Pantheon, 1992. 3d ed.) and Applied Artistry (LJ 1/96) can transform furniture and decorative accessories. She begins by describing the history and use of various paint effects, suggesting that furniture projects are a way "to try out ideas in a small way." Baskett, author of numerous instruction books, presents furniture decorating projects created by various artisans. Experienced craftspeople will find this an inspiring book with its colorfully decorated furniture, but some of the techniques, such as tole painting, and the generalized instructions will be challenging for a novice. Similar techniques and projects are covered in Sheila McGraw's Painting and Decorating Furniture (LJ 1/98), but given Innes's reputation, hers would be a wise purchase. Baskett's book is recommended only if this is a popular topic. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
