Polymer Clay Surface Design Recipes by Ellen Marshall
Regardless of your level of experience with polymer clay, the techniques and recipes for creating for combining clay with other media will inspire you to create unique surface designs. In addition to covering basic polymer clay techniques, tools, and materials, this book teaches you to use unique surface embellishments in your work.
Styled as a recipe, each illustrated surface design is shown with complete instructions for replicating the design and is accompanied by three variations. Informative explanations of specific inks, paints, and powders are included, along with a section dedicated to showing complex design combinations. This book covers a range of topical application processes that include stamping, painting, and writing on clay along with step-by-step project ideas that put these techniques to use. A gallery of polymer clay art is included for further inspiration.
