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.
