Booklist Review

Layering paint, one brush stroke at a time, to create realistic illustrations of flowers, greens, and buzzing creatures looks so easy. Yet tole painting demands patience and a mastery of techniques, such as loading, shading, stippling, and wet-on-wet applications. From the design crew at Chapelle, Bingham does a more than credible job of presenting both the basics (including supplies, techniques, and preparation) as well as a 19-project gallery of outdoor items. Each project features directions as well as worksheets on various design parts--a leaf, dragonfly, bee, tulip, and rosebuds, among others. The projects include chairs, tables, fountains, stepping stones and rocks, candleholders, planter boxes, and a watering can. Paint conversion chart and a metric conversion chart are appended. --Barbara Jacobs
