Decorative Murals With Donna Dewberry
Donna Dewberry has created more than 1,250 custom decorative paint jobs for homes and businesses, perfecting a variety of sure-fire techniques along the way. In this book, she shares some of her favorite approaches to painting trompe l'oeil murals, floral designs, faux finishes and popular theme designs.
Dewberry's clear and encouraging instruction is filled with expert tips for doing each job a little faster and easier, along with answers to common questions about surface preparation, tools and paints! With this book, even inexperienced do-it-yourself home decorators can turn any room into a masterpiece.
Dewberry (Donna Dewberry's Complete Book of One-Stroke Painting) shows numerous interior projects she has painted. For each one, she gives a description of the techniques, colors, and materials used, with step-by-step instructions included for a few. Though her well-illustrated book will give experienced decorative painters inspiring suggestions, amateurs will need a book such as Priscilla Hauser's Book of Decorative Painting (LJ 9/15/97) to get started.
