Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Oliveau and Molina cover everything from painting and creating smooth corners, to which adhesives to use for attaching different types of items, to how to create 3-D inters and “cool dangly things.” The book is rounded out with a gallery, some copyright-free images, and several templates.” - Book Review by
