An affordable and inspired way to indulge in original wall art focussing on texture, line and colour. With leftover wall paint you can enhance your interior using simple techniques like doodling, dribbling, dripping and splashing onto whatever happens to be handy - a clip file, an old door, a rusty gate, wooden panels, an old magnetic board ... and create easy and effective artworks, with the addition of pastes, crack filler, cements, oxides, sand and other materials. This book bridges the gap between craft and art, using simple craft techniques to create striking original art - something that anyone can do once they know how.
