I have purchased stacks of mixed media books lately as my husband is having a new art studio built for me and I am wanting inspiration into new ideas.

I have to say this is, unfortunately, my least favorite book of my purchases.

First, the instructions are lacking. It might show a photo of a finished piece...Let's say a work that has the same pear but printed out all different ways. The headers, I felt, were more like things I would have said to my class of kids as an art teacher. Such as in this case "Multiply Me: Let's play a game. If you see an individual person walking near you, what do you think? If it was twins would you feel different? What about triplets? Something about seeing multiples piques our interest." (Odd for an adult book, good for a kid's book)

It then shows a work I like with 6 pears printed differently but overlapping and simply gives the instructions to print out the same image several times, differently, in a photo program.

That's it. I have no idea how it was then compiled, what kind of paper was used, was this adhered to canvas or wood or what? And how? Why do some look like they are on transparent paper? What type of coating would be used over the paper to finish the work? etc.

On very complex works, they included a tag you are supposed to scan with your iphone then read the instructions. Now I could get art examples all over the internet but I bought a BOOK because I like to use idea books where I can mark the pages with art that spurs my creativity. I wished the instructions could have been included in the book which they could have had some of the images been made smaller.

I guess I thought there would be more project ideas and genuinely useful ways to use and reuse your art, but this book really lacked on that front. I think if you're looking for something like that there are other books that could work out much better.

A very big, big yay to Darlene & Sandra!!!! love this book! As a beginner mixed media explorer and still learning about what does what, this book is perfect. it gives a whole range of mixed media techniques and ideas on how to use them with examples of the authors' artwork as illustrations of some of the techniques - and then it leaves if up to you and your own creativity on how to use them, which is how it should be. The books that have very detailed instructions on how to make a specific piece of mixed media art can have their place - it does help sometimes when you're learning a new technique. But what you often end up with is an exact copy of someone else's art and not your own. The tools and materials used in Darlene and Sandra's book are also generic, which is a big, big plus. Very tired of books that use specific commercial products to get a particular effect, which are usually expensive and/or hard to get in my neck of the woods. I highly recommend this book..

I also have their Surface treatment Workshop book which I love for the same reasons. Can't wait to get their new one which I think comes out in a couple of weeks.

I really like this book. It basically has acrylic "recipes" for a number of painting techniques. The materials needed for each product are outlined at the beginning of each technique and the photography illustrates the required techniques. I am using the book for a number of my photography/mixed media art projects.

I loved this book. There is such a variety of techniques using all kinds of stuff, some of which are readily available at home. I've been doing mixed media for a while but this book inspired me to try some new things.
