Overview

Katherine Dewey's expressive and elegantly detailed sculptures enchant all who see them. With the magical medium of polymer clay and this book, you can follow in her footsteps.

Thorough instructions supported by more than 400 step-by-step color photos and 200 detailed drawings cover the entire process of sculpting realistic figures, from selecting clay and gathering essential tools to the basics of modeling the human figure, to incorporating poses, facial expressions, ethnic and gender subtleties, costumes, and painted finishing touches. Easy-to-read maps of the figure illustrate the landmarks of the body, while scale diagrams indicate the simple shapes hidden within the human form, as well as how to combine and model those shapes.

For anyone who loves fantasy, romance, nature—or sophisticated crafting—this book is a must-have.

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.
