Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Lately, casting has expanded from the ubiquitous white plaster models of children's crafts to objects made of clear resins incorporating a multitude of objects and large outdoor projects involving concrete or hypertufa. Browning (Melt and Pour Soapmaking), whose mastery of many crafts is somewhat legendary, provides attractive step-by-step projects for jewelry, household items, and garden accessories using the latest products and techniques. This book on a useful and practical craft is a good selection for public libraries. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
