Overview

A thousand and one ideas for making beautiful polymer clay millefiori. In Venetian glassmaking, slender rods of molten glass are shaped, then cut to reveal amazingly detailed patterns: flowers, geometric shapes, dancing colors. These slices are called millefiori, “thousand flowers,” because they form a carpet of flowers when placed side by side. Now celebrity author Donna Kato shows crafters exactly how to re-create these intricate, fascinating designs in polymer clay. The Art of Polymer Clay Millefiori Techniques reveals the entire process: how to work with the polymer clay, the basics of planning and creating a cane, and using color effectively. Dozens of canes, from simple to simply stunning, are included, and everything is clearly explained and illustrated with full-color photos, the Donna Kato way. Throughout the book, examples of stunning work by such millefiori artists as Kathy Amt, Pier Voulkos, and Kathleen Dustin provide inspiration. There must be a thousand ways to make beautiful millefiori . . . explore them all in The Art of Polymer Clay Millefiori Techniques.

The book and instructions are very clear - definitely a wonderful book for someone who already does some polymer clay work. Donna covers a lot of the normal techniques and highlights some more unusual applications. A worthwhile book for someone using this as a medium.

This is a no brainer purchase. Donna Kato will give you more information than you will know what to do with. I can't put this one down.

I consider myself a beginner in polymer clay even after working with it for several years. This book had projects that were easy for me to do, and they helped clean up a good deal of the scrap clay that I have accumulated over time. The pictures of Donna Kato's work as well as that of other artists are very inspiring as well.

One thing though, I wish I would of gotten the book itself instead of on the Nook. I have several other clay books, and they are easier to use while crafting than looking at the smaller Nook pictures. But, I still love it.
