This excellent how-to book showcases the many ways that photographic imagery can be manipulated by using an exciting array of traditional art materials and techniques. The chapters explore ways to add color using acrylic paints, oil sticks, watercolors, dry pigments, and inks; ways to add texture using embossing powders, gessos, pastes, and wax; and how to create special effects by printing on unusual substrates, imprinting, making photo mosaics, and by using tissue, fabric, or cardboard.
This is a delightful and experimental book for altered artists, photographers, journalers, and anyone who is interested in surface design and texture.
- Over 75 unique effects illustrated with before and after photographs, multiple finished examples, and variations
- A great technique book for artists looking to expand the creative possibilities of altered photography
- A gallery of artwork by other well-known artists to offer further inspiration
