If you've done little faux finishing, try to match colors and materials (plasters or paints) as closely as possible and practise on 2'x 2' sample boards or a wall in your house until you are comfortable with the techniques being shown. I find the author's photos and explanations to be pretty precise and accurate compared to finishes that I've created. One thing I particularly like about this book is that the author is obviously enjoying himself and is not afraid to try different ways of combining his materials to create new looks. In other words, he is always experimenting and learning. And that is what faux finishing is often about.
I was disappointed in the book because I felt that half of the book was the exact same technique, just changing out the colors. I also found several of the cabinet finishes to be very messy looking. I was just expecting more . . . .
