Outstanding introduction to making 3D models in Polymer Clay. Katherine Dewey begins by introducing us to the different types of polymer clay and their properties - saving the beginner a lot of time and money in choosing the right clay. She then explains what tools you will need and how to make them, which keeps start up costs down even more. Dewey also guides you through the scary stuff like how to make armatures and what paints to use.

The brilliance of this book lies in the step by step lesson

Great book

A nicely written book clear photos and instructions. Has step by step instructions. A must have book for any clay artist.
Angela
Pros:
* Covers clay basics better than many books.
* Great painting tips for folks more comfortable with clay than with paint.
* Lots and lots of photos to guide you through the steps.

Cons:
* Projects are all very involved (mine took 5-6 hours each), making it a poor choice for beginners or impatient types.
* I would like to see more of a bridge from the step-by-step examples to making your own animal sculptures.

I really enjoyed this book, and I have made several sculptures using techniques I learned from it. First, I tried a couple of the projects outlined in the book, but I then moved on to using what I had learned to come up with my own ideas. This is a great book for someone who has gone beyond being a beginner with sculpting polymer clay and who wants to learn to do something a little more advanced.

My wife was an artist and into many crafts. She had only gotten into polymer clay a short time before she passed. In an attempt to find something we could share I sought out books on clay modeling. Now that she is not here I still have these books and hopefully will be able to continue in this hobby.

These are models I like. Polymer clay figures...
