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.

    Gorgeous projects!

    The Art of Resin Clay, written by Sherri Haab and her two daughters, shows us amazing creations that can be made using resin clay. This medium doesn¿t ¿require heat to cure¿ and it also acts ¿as an adhesive¿ without the need for glue.¿ The Art of Resin Clay teaches all the essential points and techniques you need to know to work with resin clay. Resin clay is lightweight and it produces stunning effects, from tiny realistic food and even fabricated geodes made into rings. It¿s amazing how the Copper Cuff Bracelet looks so much like real metal and I loved the Bead Mosaic Pendant with a tiny seed bead mosaic pattern laid into resin. There are even flowers that look like porcelain which are made with resin. If you are looking for a new jewelry making material, The Art of Resin Clay is an excellent choice!

    I feel that the reviews are form the author and family. None are

    I feel that the reviews are form the author and family. None are on topic, but are being used to increase the star count. I would not trust this author due to this, even if the content of the book is excellent quality.
