    So many techniques, and so thoroughly explained! This book is taking my painting to a new level. I own dozens of art books, but this has become my "go-to" book for understanding types of paint and mediums and the possibilities and limitations of each. Highly recommended.

    The perfect book for anyone looking for instruction and inspiration for acrylic mixed media painting techniques. Excellent companion to Chris Cozen's instructional DVDs. I have been painting with acrylics for a year and recently decided to try mixed media. I refer to this book quite often.

    I am a relatively new mixed media artist. Chris Cozen’s books are filled with easy to follow projects that provide inspiration to artists of all levels of expertise. Cozen is knowledgeable about mixed media art, and clearly describes various artistic techniques to expand an artist’s toolbox.
