The Painter’s Handbook


By Mark David Gottsegen

SKU: 1826 Categories: ,


Much more than just another guide to artists’ materials, The Painter’s Handbook is an amazingly useful resource with information on the canvas itself, plus paper, sizes and grounds, pigments and binders, solvents and thinners, varnishes and preservatives.  The book includes dozens of step-by-step recipes for paints, pastels, varnishes, gessoes, sizes, supports, and equipment; it also shares new information on outmoded and even harmful supplies and practices.
