Review:

Love this book. Like most ardent crafters, I have a studio full of not-so-good-for-people-or-planet paints, glues and who-knows-what else. While I realize these aren’t so great to work with and might cause problems, I never thought (duh!)about making any of these items myself.

What I really like about “Green Guide For Artists,” are the simple, straightforward recipes, presented clearly and engagingly. Honestly, I could hardly wait to try making many of the items to use in my “Celebrate Green” projects. I’m not a painter, but a crafter in mixed media so the title was a bit intimidating, but even as a crafter, I use many of the items the author covers.
