An amazing example of trade literature with some of the most impressive (grain painted and glazing) paint chips we've ever seen. Scumbling is the art of modifying a color by applying a very thin coat of opaque paint over it to give it a softer or duller effect. An indispensible resource for this unusual craft. Extremely scarce.
