Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3 Up-This attractive book shows how to create 30 characters out of polymer clay. A "Note to Grown-Ups" gives tips and reminders, including the fact that adult supervision is needed. Although this supervision is most important in the baking step that hardens the clay, many of the projects will require patience and detailed work that may be beyond younger sculptors. Several pages give helpful hints for working with the medium and list supplies. The color wheel and basic shapes are treated with the same whimsy as the projects. The figures all stem from the basics taught at the beginning, and range from a simple pig made from several balls squished together to a complex dragon with multicolored scales. Each step is explained and captured in a clear, color photograph. The amount of clay needed and finished sizes are not given, but the pictures should be enough for most modelers to figure it out. An appealing how-to.-Genevieve Gallagher, Orange County Public Library, VA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Worth purchasing

    Great project for a rainy day. I bought this a few months ago and started it today with my neice (11yrs old) Wow we had a blast and what beautiful creatures we created.

    Fun and easy to follow!

    What a great book! Detailed introduction about clay, tools and techniques. Step by step instructions with great pictures and descriptions. Cute story to go with each project. Easy to follow and great for working with kids, though some young ones might need a little help with some parts. Perfect for a beginner like me. I recommend highly.
