Decorative paint techniques provide the quickest, cheapest and most effective ways to create stylish, eye-catching interiors. Included in this book are 25 ideas showing how to use paint in all kinds of ways to suit every decorative style - from bright and contemporary to traditional and classical, Caribbean-coloured window shutters, a tile-effect kitchen wall or a Scandinavian-style table. Each project is shown step-by-step and there is a comprehensive techniques section including a catalogue of paint effects and information on mixing colours and using glazes and varnishes.
