Informative and the art is lovely, inspiring. Great for acrylic painting but not as much for encaustic.

Having studied art at a tertiary level, I was pleasantly surprised to find this book to be easily at the tertiary level of education. It's approach and exploration of mixed media is intelligent and practical. This book is indispensible for any artist exploring mixed media art. I found it so useful I bought it!
