Write a Review. Search Press. Twenty to Make Series. But I was disappointed — the content was sparse. There are the usual first few pages with tools and equipment and some basic techniques to follow. Then there are a number of tutorials on how to make bracelets. If you like very unusual ones, then this is for you.
But I think I expected to learn more. It is carefully organised and one can jump from area to area which is the advantage of an on line book. The organisation is extreme, however, as his directions to pages seem to take up unnecessary space.

What he has to say is meticulous and with excellent diagrams and photographs. He concentrates on one project only, in fine detail. If you have any books you would like to recommend please do send details to book at clayaround. Sue has written many books and this is one of the more recent ones albeit a number of years old which is very comprehensive - ideal for those new to Polymer clay.
If you want a first book, this would be one to be considered. C arol is as generous in her teaching in this book as she is when one meets her. She gives away so many tips and tricks and offers comprehensive tutorials on so many polymer clay techniques. When asked which is one of the best books to start with when coming new to polymer clay, this has to be the recommendation.
The images are not calculated to be elegant - they are utilitarian. About the only criticism on offer is that the type is very small - but that way she crams in so much more information. An important book in your polymer clay library. The book is all about her slant on mokome gane and she makes it look so easy, with many colourful images and ideas, hints and tips, and palettes. This really is a must book if you enjoy colour and creativity. Lisa said herself that there is no such thing as a complete book of polymer clay, but she certainly has a try.
Lisa is another of the polymer clay teachers who gives what she knows generously. To be fair she never stops promoting her own products and they figure in this book, but there is much to be learned from it, and I would recommend it to beginners and experts alike.
There is a lot of text which might be off putting, but most is worth reading and the tutorials are thorough with lots of tips and tricks. This book has lots of ideas and lots of techniques and is useful for beginners - although some of the tutorials are somewhat obscure and need to be read through more than once. You need to be a fan of Donna Kato's distinctive style to really appreciate some of the projects however. The images are clear and the gallery pictures show Donna's skill as a clayer.

The images are similar, the tutorial too. This book emphasises more than her other, Donna's distinctive way of producing artifacts, although along the way she does suggest some really interesting surface ideas.
It is interesting that like so many artists, her tutorials on Mica shift use gold - I guess it is the colour that shows this technique up welll. This is not such a useful Donna book but one still worth considering. From basic bull's eye canes to stripes, bargello and chevron, from leaves and petals to face canes - what ever your level of expertise there is something for you.
