    Mixed media book...mostly clay,resin, and metals

    This book has lovely photos in it. Flipping through the pages is a fun experience.

    This book is really for those people wanting to be inspired to work with RESIN and METAL CLAY.

    The book includes what type of materials a person will need in order to make RESIN and METAL CLAY products.
    Also, there are some instructions on how to proceed with these products.
