All Craft Books by Paulette
The fast, fun and easy Painting Ceramic Bisque book series was written for anyone who wants to learn (or improve) acrylic painting on ceramic bisque, plaster or wood. This series was written by Paulette Morrissey, an experienced crafter and ceramist with over twenty five years of painting and crafting.
If you are new to painting ceramics, these books are for you. If you've been painting a while but think there's more to learn
and more fun to be had, or if you seem to be ''going through the motions'' - doing something because someone told you to, but
not explaining why - then these books are for you too.
Learning the basics is what Book One - Mastering the Basics is all about. Once you know what you're doing, you will be able to experiment and decide how you want things to look - and how you don't want them to look. Learn what bisque is, how it differs from other paintable surfaces and what products work best on it. Learn the basics of many popular finishing techniques - enough to get you started and hooked on this addictive hobby. This book is a very useful introduction to all acrylic painting. 8-1/2'' x 11'', spiral bound, 21 pages.
