Not really sure how to review it - it's an instructional book on how to use various mixed-media techniques. It's clear and straightforward and has many examples of different methods, but it is a bit on the short side at 70 pages. There seems to be a lot of small samples of other peoples (artists) works with no detailing on how these pieces were done, and not enough detailed examples of the writer's works with instructions on how to do them yourself.
