Details: Product Description Paint finishes and effects are now established as an essential component of every decorator's range of skills. Here, for the first time in paperback, is bestselling authors Judith and Martin Miller's fully illustrated practical guide to the secrets of the surface finishes and effects that complement period homes and furniture. Each chapter is illustrated by inspirational photographs showing how different finishes were used in decorative schemes and includes practical step-by-step sequences demonstrating how amateurs can achieve authentic-looking finishes and effects. By focusing on authentic-looking period finishes, this book answers a need that is not fulfilled by any other paint-finish or do-it-yourself manual. From Library Journal The authors of Period Design & Furnishing (Crown, 1988) have created a companion book that will educate and inspire amateur and professional decorators to enhance period interiors through the use of wall treatments and paint techniques. The uniqueness of this "how-to" book is found in the detailed history of the origins and use of each effect. Instructions for traditional wall treatments are included, as are ways of making new surfaces look antique, such as aging metal or wood. The appendix provides a glossary on equipment, materials, and techniques, and the directory lists supply companies in both Great Britain and the United States. Recommended for collections specializing in interior design and historic preservation. - Gayle A.
