The first one is called 'rethinking acrylic' by Patti Brady
Love this book and will definitely use as a reference.
The cost of this book was $39.99
The next two books I have been reading are 'THE NEW ACRYLICS COMPLETE GUIDE TO THE NEW GENERATION OF ACRYLIC PAINT' and 'NEW ACRYLICS ESSENTIAL RESOURCE BOOK' both are by Rheni Tauchid
These books are more informative than the first books. They go more into the the meanings of all the different terminology used so you can choose the right acrylic paint for yourself. The different mediums or gels are also discussed in great detail. The books have similar names but they complement each other and there really isn't any overlap.
When Rheni refers to a particular product it is Tri-Art (a Canadian Company) .
I read these books together and found a lot of interesting information about everything dealing with acrylic paints I also like the fact that Acrylic Inks were included.
There are some projects at the end of The New Acrylics.
I bought these books together and the cost was with tax $56.65.
For the money they are definitely worth it especially if you are like me and like to know everything about a product you use so you can get all you can from it.
I am really enjoying these books and I know all three books will be used.
See you later I am off to my Birthday Supper "Chinese"
Have a Great Day!
