Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Polymer clay work is one of the rare crafts with potential to appeal to serious artists as well as casual crafters, and the costs of getting started with a polymer clay hobby are relatively low. With the guidance of polymer clay artists Mabray and Otterbein, crafters can get a handle on all of the basics of working with this distinctive medium. The projects are the highlight hereā€”the authors expect readers to learn by doing, and a variety of techniques, including Skinner blends, canes, snakes, mold making, and stamping, are outlined. The DVD features further step-by-step directions for many techniques.

    Nice first step

    I was first of all, impressed with the bright, colorful pictures, useful tips and step-by-step instructions. While I have not had a chance to make anything, I went through each page and it seems I will be able to do a couple projects. The only downfall of the book, for me: the look of the projects is not mine and while they are simple, I will not be making most of them without drastic color and style changes. Oh, to have more time to play!
