PAINT – the book

PAINT is the book embodiment of our classic paint and sip experience, guiding you step by step through the basics of painting with acrylics.

This stunning hardcover book was designed to look as good on your coffee table or bookshelf as it does in full creative action! We thought of everything; a special sparkly foil for the cover, a rich ribbon placeholder to keep track of which painting you’re up to, and made sure it opens to lay flat on the table – this way your paint covered hands are free to hold your brushes.

Go ahead and judge this book by its beautiful cover, but trust that things get even better once you open it. In the nearly 300 full-colour pages, explore paint in all realms; as a medium, as a practice, and what it means to become a painter. First, become acquainted with your equipment, practice basic techniques, learn about the elusive creative process and how to enhance your creativity. Then, paint along to twenty of Cork & Chroma’s classic beginner-friendly acrylic paintings, building on skills as you go.

A must-have book for those who want to learn how to paint and are fans of paint and sip!
