With just a little imagination and a lot of fun, it is possible to bring both colour and originality to your home in just a few weekends, and without spending a fortune. This book brings together the easiest and most adaptable of painting techniques, together with fabulous ideas for applying them to the walls of your home. Beginning with a detailed introduction to all the materials and equipment you will need - which brushes and paints to choose and how to mix your paints to create new colours - the book shows how to achieve many simple paint effects, such as sponging, combing, colourwashing, ragging, stippling, stencilling and stamping. The main part of the book consists of 22 projects, each focusing on a distinctive theme. There is something for every level of expertise and ability, from simple projects such as a rough plaster colourwash and a two-tone rollered wall to more complicated projects such as a richly coloured theatrical wall with stencilled Renaissance motifs and a dramatic Gothic dining room stamped with luxurious gold leaf. Over 300 colour photographs illustrate every instruction and technique in step by step detail, and a templates section at the back of the book is invaluable in helping you to create professional-looking designs. With a great gallery of room shots and hundreds of professional tips and design ideas, this is the only paint effects reference book, inspirational sourcebook and practical manual any decorator will ever need.
