If you want to know what Tim Holtz has for sale and how to use it, this is the book for you! I found out what to do with most of the products he sells, and it was informative. Better was the part about how to create using his inks and powders. However, the instructions lasted one page maybe, and I felt that they were abrupt and not descriptive. These two parts to the book, the description of his products and the very abruptly written instructions for using his inks, etc, are why I perceive his book to be more of a catalog than a book. I was disappointed with the book. I expected a real compendium of curiosities that would inspire me and get me going with my art. This did not happen with this book. Frankly, his videos are better. I would not buy this book if I had it to do over again.

This is a nice book to look at once, it has great pictures, but I was hoping for a book of ideas or projects. It is mostly about products he sells. Not any new ideas and products I couldn't find in my local store.

Anything Tim Holtz is good for me. He is a gifted artist and this book offers the reader a recipe for recreating something that looks amazing. I have tried many of the techniques in this book and they come out looking super. The directions are clear and the photos are helpful in showing what to do and what to expect for your project.

Tim Holtz has done it again with this very special techniques book. Basic instructions for many of his products are given, MUCH more helpful than videos whether you're in the studio, curled up in bed or out and about, "waiting". Was pleasantly surprised! Well worth the cost!

Fun book with creative tips and fresh ideas on paint techniques for Altered Arts...The Padded Cover is fun, so I took an embossing tool and 'hand' embossed it to give it an enhanced appearance, just for fun. Love it...
