I loved “101 More Mixed Media Techniques” by Cherril Doty, Heather Greenwood, Monica Moody, Marsh Scott! There are so many great ideas in this book for any aspiring artist. There are probably lots of new ideas for someone who has been painting, creating, crafting all kinds of art projects for years. Literally, there are more than a hundred great ideas, how-to guides and what types of materials you need to create the effects, and then lots and lots of samples to look at.
Again, I loved this book! I feel like if you just started incorporating one or two of these techniques every artwork, it could take years to make full utilization of each and every one. Wow! What a wealth of information and inspiration packed into one book. This book makes me want to find the original.
This would also be super fun to to help inspire your kids to try. Maybe they are bored at your local art museum, bring them home, crack open this book, and try to master a new technique together. For me, this book is like a year’s worth of art school full of ideas to dig into. These effects created can transform an interesting looking start of a painting into an eye-popping, attention-grabbing masterpiece that gets people thinking. That is the power these techniques hold to take your artwork to the next level.
