Kind of missing an important step
on August 28, 2011
Bought this book because the author's concept of mixing colors seemed interesting. After all, there's this neat grid to use so you mix the right percentage of colors. Here's my problem. As the book states, "each recipe indicates a specific Water Level." Yep, the author says "specific." Really? From the book: Level one requires the "greatest amount of water," level 2 "slightly less water," level 3 requires "less water than level 2" ....wow, real "specific." So is the author's idea of level 1 a drop of water from an eye dropper or a teaspoon of water? And through the Color Recipes, the author specifies water levels of 2.5, which I guess is slightly less water than level 2 but slightly more water than level 3 - whatever that may be. Pretty book if you want to look at colors. Fairly worthless if you want to learn to mix colors.
