"This is a rare craft book, one that requires little experience, uses simple tools, and does not result in cloyingly sweet projects. Rooney teaches one to cut and manipulate sponge pads, sheet foam, and natural sea sponge to achieve remarkable impressionistic textures. These are combined to represent anything from vines, bamboo, and butterflies to the moon and stars. Tins, boxes, shelves, flowerpots, and fabrics can also take on the look of Monet or Martha Stewart. Recommended for craft collections used by adults or young folks."--Library Journal.

What could be better than a craft that is easy to learn, requires no painting skills, and gives great results? Here's the perfect introduction to an ideal medium for decorating walls, furniture, dishes, flowerpots...almost anything. See how to prepare surfaces, add subtle background effects, make and use printing blocks, and adapt and combine motifs. 14 projects--most with suggestions for alternative colors and designs--include a moon and stars in bronze and gold metallic paint on a dark blue background; a merry Christmas pattern of holly and mistletoe; stems of climbing ivy for picture or mirror frames; cheerful marigolds and bumblebees to brighten a playroom or child's bedroom; a range of flowerpot decorations; and more. 128 pages (all in color), 7 1/4 x 9 3/4.
