The Gilded Room: Decorating with Metallic Effects, from Metal Leaf to Powders, Pastes and Paints
Decorative metallic effects are sleek enough to complement very contemporary interiors, yet luxurious enough for more traditional decor, while distressed or weathered versions work well with the ever-popular shabby chic look. In short, as we learn in Kerry Skinner's elegant guide, The Gilded Room, metallic finishes can add a wonderful accent to many styles of decor on many surfaces. With gold, silver, and copper leaf, metallic paints and powders, artists' oils, copper wire, wire mesh, and recycled metal plates, Skinner adorns walls, floors, desks, columns, screens, sconces, and much more. Although a few of the techniques can be handled by the novice, most are fairly labor- and materials-intensive, requiring a good deal of preparation and a fair amount of practice. Those who have some previous experience with metal-effect projects should achieve success through Skinner's excellent step-by-step photos and directions. In addition to the 20 projects, the author provides nine eye-catching pages of further painted-patina and patterned-metallic effects, as well as a helpful source list of suppliers. --Amy Handy

Fierce Deities. In Buddhist art of the Himalayas, images of terrifying demon-like beings are common. These fierce deities are considered benevolent to the devotee and act as spiritual protectors or conquerors of obstacles on the path to enlightenment. Holding weapons and skull cups, and often decorated with garlands and severed heads or limbs, such fierce deities are reminders that the physical body and material realm mean nothing. They usher the devotee toward the ultimate goal - release from the cycle of rebirth in order to attain ultimate wisdom, or spiritual enlightenment These photographs are from my visit to the Royal Ontario Museum. I went because they were having a special exhibit featuring the terracota army. Although photographs of the figures themselves were strictly prohibited I still managed to get some good shots from other exhibits the museum was having.
