    Very Useful

    I am a potter and often like to incorporate other things into my finished pots such as natural materials (branches, stones, seeds, etc.) and have been playing with the idea of creating PMC objects to inlay into my finished pots. This book gave me the technical information necessary to accomplish this with stunning results. The process, while similar in many aspects to traditional clay, has many technical differences that I needed to know about in order to use this material to its best (and most economical) advantage. This book gives lots of practical information (which I needed) without giving too much in the way of design instruction (which I didn't). Well worth the price. Just sayin'

    I really like this book

    I believe that Metal Clay the Complete Guide is a must have for any beaders library. It is easy to read and I found it very informative.
    I have just started working with Metal Clay and really found this book to be very helpful both in the lay out and the ideas. Thanks
