Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The versatility of polymer clay as a craft medium is well demonstrated in both these books. Pavelka (Polymer Clay Extravaganza) provides projects for experienced crafters, including such things as a three-dimensional clock, a photo bracelet, and an embossed clay-on-metal evening bag. She describes all the latest techniques, including a photo-transfer process using gin. The mosaic projects in Wells's book are less complicated flat-surface decorations on jewelry and household items. The TV and film artist includes instructions for making one's own clay tiles to complete the projects. Both books would be welcome in crafts collections needing more material on polymer clay.
