A Roundup of Colouring Technique Books

It took a while, but eventually publishers began to meet the demand for colouring technique books. How do you shade gems? How do you do backgrounds? What are the best pencils and pens? How can you put texture into my colouring? Skin tones? Oh yes, there was plenty that we didn't know about.
Here is a roundup of what's been published that's caught my eye. I'll start with the most recent, which I haven't got my hands on yet, but it looks good.

Colorist's Special Effects by Helen Elliston.

I like Helen's colouring books and in this book she tackles head on those colouring questions you have - gems, faces, bubbles, metallic effects, light and so much more.
