Katherine Dewey is a master at proportion. That is one of the most valuable aspects of her book. So many polymer clay artists seem to have difficulty with getting all portions of a clay figure correct. This book provides good instruction in this area. This is a very useful book for a serious clay artist.
I love this book although i've only had it for 24 hrs, i made the hands just for practice, but OMG they are perfect!!!! This book is worth it's Weight in gold. Thank you katherine and when will "Making babies" be available? I will be a return custumer for sure. Dolly
