Polymer Clay: 30 Terrific Projects to Roll, Mold & Squish
Introducing a new crafts series for kids 8 to 12! With great care and love for their art, the talented experts at Lark have always produced books that encouraged creativity, experimentation, and imagination in the crafter. Now they're ready and eager to help children express themselves artistically. And you can be sure that every one of these delightful guides will virtually burst with fun projects, simple instructions, appealing photos, original techniques, and terrific materials.
Polymer clay is the perfect material for youngsters: in addition to polymer's pliability, it doesn't dry out like regular clay, comes in a range of bright colors, and can bake in an ordinary oven. And the most important tools are your hands, so children can really dig in and feel the tactile joy of manipulating their work. With the help of a renowned polymer clay artist, kids can create 30 awesome objects. A comprehensive basics section covers everything from rolling, cutting and sculpting to figuring out amounts, conditioning the clay, mixing new colors, and creating textures. Kids will really love the cool tricks, too, including marbling and embedding objects. But what will really stir their creative juices are the really super projects, including a Donut Pendant, Bug Magnets, Trinket Bowl, Plant Critters, Fat Pen, Spirit Guide Doll, and Computer Monitor Wizard.
