Emma Hunk's Country Painting Style: 20 Decorative Painting Projects
Presents guidelines and step-by-step projects for decorating ordinary household items and features. The text introduces the materials and equipment needed and covers the basic techniques, from preparing surfaces and cutting a stencil to protecting the finished work with varnish. The main part of the book takes elements of the home in turn: walls and floors; furniture; accessories and fabrics; and outdoor spaces. Also included are ideas for borders and alternative applications for each motif, together with a section on materials and techniques.
