I am a Novice in Miniatures (1/12 my chosen size, but this book can be applied to all sizes), and I WAS a Beginner with Polymer Clay. Being that I am determined to make as much as I can for my own house(s) and my interest in learning how to make foods with polymer clay led me to purchase this book. BOY did I get MORE, LOTS MORE than I bargained for with this wonderful book! I can make a ham, and a ham sandwich (from the same ham I just made!), but I can also make plants, books, and I'm making desktop items to put on the desk I made that fooled a very seasoned mini enthusiast...she was SHOCKED to find out that it wasn't made of WOOD! ~VBG~ Get this book if you want to learn how to make every kind of food, pottery, plant, furniture, ANYthing really, for your dollhouses, or for a mini-display in a shadow box, or just because you want to give yourself permission to play with 'playdoh' again! This time in the 'adult's version'. No matter what prompts you to purchase this book, you will learn so much about the properties of all types of polymer clays and how to do what you want to do that you will be well satisfied way before you realize that you're about to branch out into another clay project because the book has inspired you to a new creative level you didn't think you could reach or even planned to try to reach! GO FOR IT! It's worth every penny! Every miniaturist and every polymer artist should have this one in their reference library! Cheers and Happy House Making!
I found this book to be quite informative. I have used polymer clays for awhile, and I think this book is excellent for beginners as well as those who would like to try doing miniatures. The pictures are very clear and illustrations are self-explanatory. Sue Heaser makes it seem like anything is possible with polymer clay! I recommend this to anyone interested in oven baked clays as well as doll house enthusiasts.
