Mixed Emulsions is a follow up to Karen Michel's book, The Complete Guide to Altered Imagery. Mixed Emulsions: Altered Art Techniques for Photographic Imagery takes a slightly different tact, bringing traditional and digital photography front and center, showing the many ways that photographic imagery can be manipulated, not electronically, but using various art materials and techniques. The chapters explore ways to add color (paints, oil sticks, watercolors, inks), ways to add texture (embossing powders, gessos, pastes, wax), and special effects (printing on unusual substrates, imprinting, photo mosaics, using tissue, fabric, cardboard).

Altered art continues to grow as an area of interest for many kinds of crafters.

  • A great technique book for artists looking to expand the creative possibilities for altered photography
  • A gallery of artwork by other well-known artists offers further inspiration

Mixed Emulsions  Nov 26, 2008
Although I'm glad I ordered this book, it does leave some 'holes' in the instructions. I've done phototinting before so it didn't bother me.
But a beginner might have trouble.
Mixed Emulsions ~ Great bargain, great book....  Nov 2, 2008
Not only do I absolutely love the book, but the service (shipping, cost, timely arrival, etc.) was great. Simple, smooth and on time!
Taking photographic images one step further...  Aug 26, 2008
When I was little, my mom was hired to "color" BW photographs for a local photographer with special paints. With her extra photos to practice on, I played around with the colors and chemicals and had such fun, often making the unknown ladies' lips horrendous shade of reds or purples to blues that clashed with their dresses, hair color, and/or glasses. I still laugh when I think about it and little did I know how my play would have actually been valued as a unique artform so popular today. This book brings back the FUN when playing with photographs printed on various media. Fun while doing art allows for creative freedom of trial and error. What I found to be extremely important about this book is that it gives you IDEAS to play with and test on your own. Suggested products, often those you have in your typical art box, can produce unique imagery when combined with photographic imagery. The importance of art today is the factor of playing with products to see what works and what doesn't AND how to make it look apppealing to others and draw them into the image for various reasons. No - this book doesn't give step-by-step information for each product used, but it allows you, the artist, the freedom to try things for your self.

I love the numerous TIPS provided throughout the book - many are common sense, but others really come in handy in the understanding of the product application on various media (i.e. what works well or what doesn't work - e.g. antiquing with walnut inks - using different types of pens and implements to vary the writing/marking style, using a spritzer for various spattering patterns, crumpling the paper before inking to get a crack-line ink pattern, etc.). These tips may give those who want a more detailed step-by-step info a heads up if they are afraid to try things on their own. So consider the Tips handy information to work from during your creativity process with photograph art.

Many sections have a linear TIMELINES on how products were developed and used over recorded history (e.g. oil painting on images; woodblock prints to modern printing and stamping; development of acrylics; use of oil pastels and pencils in art; development of the felt tip markers and their uses; stencils; inks; history of paper;...and so much more to list here). Additional information on where to get products and what products were used on various projects throughout the book is provided on the latter pages along with a section of "Portfolio of Art" showcasing numerous artists along with an excellent glossary for reference.

Last - the author and I encourage all artists interested in the modification of photographs in mixed media art to really explore the possibilities. Combine products and techniques. Test new things out. Feel free to EXPLORE, CREATE, and EXPAND your horizons and see what you can do to make photographic images sing with a special theme all your own. Use your old photographs (that is those you don't care if they get ruined), photocopy them, scan them onto different products (silk, handmade paper, vellum, etc.) and then use modifying products to create something that speaks to you. Angela Cartwright's book "MIXED EMULSIONS" can give you the courage, as it did for me, and will inspire you to go in paths you may not have thought possible when exploring art using photographic imagery as the basis of each art piece created by you.

Anyway - isn't that what ART is all about?
Very Altered Art  May 11, 2008
This book turned out to be much deeper into mixing media in art than it seemed to be at first. It will be a great experience to try more of them.
Interesting, original, beautiful, well-explained, necessary  Apr 8, 2008
Though I am able to make a lot of different crafts as I've been a teacher in France during several years, and author of one book released in 1999 in French, I precise, I always had problems with using photos in my crafted items, as I often had very bad surprises. That's why I bought this book, to learn, to know more about working on and around photos.
I also like to find something different and original, not always the same "how to do this or that", and I must admit I learned new things with this book, it made work my imagination, it is original, we feel the author knows her stuff very well, but there are also other artists' creations, and it is really very well explained, even for beginners.
So, I recommend this book which is, I think, useful, even absolutely necessary in any crafter's studio or home.
