ArtEffects is divided into five sections that cover the most-used painting mediums: inks, watercolor, acrylics, oils, and pastels. Each section begins with a general discussion of the specific medium's unique properties, physical makeup, and methods of application, followed by a list of various materials that can be used in combination with the medium. Then comes a dazzling display of examples (some with step-by-step demonstration) of the almost limitless textures and effects you can achieve by combining one medium with another, or with the myriad papers and art-related products on the market today, as well as with household and other unexpected materials such as cornstarch, string, and plastic wrap. Here, you can easily find out how a specific medium will perform in combination with, for example, sand, gold gouache, or acrylic modeling paste, and how that medium can be used in airbrush, stenciling, and monoprinting techniques.
