I am not ashamed to admit that I've been intimidated by mixed media and altered art. But Altered Surfaces by Chris Cozen has me itching to start playing with gels, mediums, grounds, pastes, and paints!
I really do want to make some amazing mixed media pieces with color and depth like the ones I see, but I know my skills are limited, so I'm afraid to try. But after reading through Altered Surfaces, I feel like I just took a class in what's possible and feel confident to try. Altered Surfaces by Chris Cozen shows you a product, tells you what it's used for, and shows examples of both applying it and finished results. The 50+ page book will be a go-to resource for the crafter looking to delve into paint applications and all of the fun stuff that can make your altered art shine!
