Synopsis

Betty's Not Well Today by Gus Clarke

This is a practical manual for those wishing to use decorative finishes on their furniture, walls and floors. It offers step-by-step instructions and photographs on how to sand, fill, seal, paint, wet-sand, isolate, antique and varnish all kinds of surfaces from wood, glass, ceramic to metal, plastic and leather. There are chapters on gilding, more complex finishes such as marble, Japanese lacquer, wall-glazing, crackle finish, shagreen, trompe l'oeil, as well as stencilling and painting techniques including stippling, dragging, chamois, sponging, distressing and ageing with wax and pigment. It is illustrated throughout with full-colour photographs of before and after, many showing readily obtained pieces metamorphozed with simple finishes.
