    Great book for sculpting realistic figures

    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.
