Book Review by: Cynthia (Cindy) Powell

I chose this new release, written by: Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch, published by North Light Books, 2009

If you enjoy working with wax in your art projects, this is a great book to help you explore the many possibilities for incorporating various other elements to create textures, use images, tools for carving, adding color, charcoal and the list goes on. The book is divided up into mini-workshops for each of these techniques and more. There are lots of wonderful examples for each lesson and a gallery of finished works in the back. Easy to follow, step by step instructions with plenty of room for you to experiment with your own combinations of various materials. This book is a must have for the wax artist's personal library. A terrific reference book that you will visit often.

I will be using this book as a reference in an upcoming wax workshop on the Latest Trends in Mixed Media Yahoo group (link is in the sidebar). I hope you will join us for some fun experimenting with various tools, paints and of course, wax!

What else are we up to over on the Yahoo group? We have several things going on each month, beginning with our Monthly Designer Paper techniques. This month I will be sharing with you a technique using cheesecloth for texture. Come join the fun! Meet some new art friends!
