520    "Modern Acrylics Handbook Materials, Techniques, and 
       Contemporary Applications for Today's Artists Written by 
       Rheni Tauchid This new, sophisticated, comprehensive 
       reference book will inspire and instruct painters on how 
       to handle today's acrylics in innovative and 
       individualistic ways. Acrylics have grown into the most 
       adaptable art material for the modern age. Developments in
       the pigment industry have given acrylics a remarkably 
       permanent, rich, and abundant palette, making it the 
       favorite medium of many contemporary artists. As colors 
       are being developed, their chemical components are also 
       enhanced for better texture and handling. Readers of 
       Modern Acrylics Handbook will learn how to create lush 
       textures, vibrant colors, and sensuous surfaces with 
       acrylic paints and mediums. In addition to traditional 
       techniques, such as glazing and staining, this book 
       demonstrates fresh applications, including soft sculpture,
       printing, and mosaics. A gallery of art from today's top 
       artists working with acrylics is also featured for further
       creative insight and inspiration. Acrylics are not what 
       they once were, but are in fact benefitting from an 
       evolutionary process that no other paint medium has had 
       the luxury to experience. They are the first truly modern 
       paints because each component of their chemistry continues
       to evolve as our technology and knowledge expands. Those 
       who paint, those who teach painting, and those who are 
       learning to paint are all looking for the same thing: a 
       paint that will stand up to just about any task it is 
       given. In acrylics, artists have found answers to many 
       problems left unaddressed by other mediums"--|cProvided by
