Applique, stamp, carve, saw and buff it; the clay can even capture the look of jade, turquoise, ivory, wood and metal. Plus, it comes in an array of marvellous colours and effortlessly shapes into lamps, bowls, buttons, beads and beautiful baubles. Find out about the latest in the craft of polymer clay sculpting - from the different clay types (including translucent and glow in the dark) and a variety of helpful tools to the limitless array of techniques (photo transfers, cracking, extruding, and more). Novices can plunge right into projects like the Chinese Good Luck Lantern, Segment Bracelet, Starburst Box, and Tiny Jointed Teddy Bear.

I just LOVE this book. This is a book for anyone more art- minded that likes polymer clay. Good projects, lots to think about, very very good gallery pictures of other clayers work. Worth reading once or twice in a year even when I have been claying for over a decade Read full review

Projects on transfering images on clay etc. A nice book, but one project is dangerous if you use tealight candle on it. Read full review
