A brush with old furniture that makes it instant antique. Mrs. Browning tells all about it; preparing and painting wood and metal surfaces, the use of color (paints, brushes, techniques), designs and motifs, freehand decoration, glazing and marbleizing, lining and interior finishes, finishing touches. A word too on pitfalls and bargains (""Learn to develop a sharp eye for good design and forget the trimmings"") and what paints and decorates well, with selective sources of supply. If you don't have Grotz (The Furniture Doctor, etc.), you may want this.
