Before this book came along, I had no idea that plaster had so much to offer! Whether you enjoy working big or small, two-dimensional or three-dimensional, or with acrylic paint or encaustic, creating layers, carving, stenciling or any other number of approaches, the projects and techniques in this book will allow you to take an entirely new road with your art making. Of course, the gorgeous work from these artists is inspiration on its own!

Stephanie Lee and Judy Wise are incredible instructors who can manage to teach you online or with a book, where most teachers fall flat. They make the projects easy to understand and encourage you to master the techniques in your own way, making the projects your very own. I encourage anyone who hasn't tried plaster techniques to buy this book!
