Cindy Selected "Mixed Emulsions" by: Angela Cartwright
Published by Quarry Books, 2007

To me, this is a "Must Have" book for anyone interested in altering photographs. My copy is so dog-earred and used that the pages are starting to fall out! I chose this book to conduct a workshop last June ('08) for the Latest Trends in Mixed Media Art, Yahoo group (link is in the sidebar). It is chock full of wonderful artistic effects! Techniques such as: adding a variety of textures with various mediums, washes, paint, antiquing, fading, stamping, adding fibers, different elements, etc. etc. etc. I spent months experimenting with these techniques and still haven't explored them all! If you love to experiment with different products to achieve a variety of effects, this is the book for you! It allows you plenty of room to play with the effects as well as create your own. An excellent book to get you started! Wonderful photographs of each technique, great projects, fabulous "eye candy". If you have a drawer full or boxes full of photos, drag them out and start playing!
