"Green Guide for Artists" by Karen Michel's

I've just ordered this!

This review is from: Green Guide for Artists: Nontoxic Recipes, Green Art Ideas, & Resources for the Eco-Conscious Artist (Paperback)

Karen Michel's Green Guide for Artists is an absolute must-have on every artist's shelf. It's an engaging, in-depth compendium of information, safety tips and guidelines, and recipes for creating less hazardous and toxic paints and mediums than are widely available commercially. And what's super cool about that is it harks back to times when artists created and concocted their own paints and mediums as a matter of course, artists like Rembrandt and Michelangelo.
The Resources and Recycling pages are phenomenal, there are five chapters on incorporating recycling and upcycling techniques into your everyday technique toolkits for bookmaking and more. The incredible "botanical alchemist" India Flint and the "collage graffiti" minimalist Cat Collier are just two of an illustrious group of dedicated and daring mixed-media pioneers who contributed to the gallery.
