Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Resin clay shares a number of characteristics with polymer clay, including ease of use and reasonable cost, but it isn't as commonly used. Experienced jewelry designer Haab (The Art of Metal Clay) and her daughters, Rachel and Michelle Haab, introduce crafters to the basics of this versatile medium via a variety of jewelry projects using resin clay elements as a focal point or as a setting for other materials. The instructions include helpful photographs illustrating each step—ample guidance for crafters of all skill levels. VERDICT Crafters who enjoy polymer-clay projects may wish to explore the possibilities of resin clay, and this is an excellent entry point.
