I was Very pleased with this book..it seems simple but its loaded with some very good ideas I continue to use in both stamping on polymer clay and jewerly making..It may seem simple to some..and maybe thats one reason I enjoy it..but I find myself referring back to it in both jewerly making and polymerclay.I love the incorperation of fibers in the pieces as well...Mrs.C.
As both a polymer clay and wire jewelry artist, I love the way this book combines both. The designs are unique and while their creation is simple, the final product is elegant and appealing to more than one audience. Cheryl presents ideas for combining the two media that I hadn't thought of. The instructions are sometimes a bit unclear but most of the projects can be completed by beginners. Highly recommended.
Many of the projects scream 2002!!!!!, but the eight artists share techniques that travel well into 2015 and hopefully beyond.I especially liked the beads and the mosaic tile book/journal covers by Kathy Martin.I have been hoarding two empty Altoid tins for an embarrassing length of time (although not since 2002). Perhaps Babette Cox's double-page spread on decorative tins will finally inspire me to at least start seriously thinking about them and assembling potential materials/supplies.
Though I can't say it's a great book for a beginner, I can say it had some pretty good ideas for a more seasoned Sculpey artist/crafter.
This book has nice instructions and great pictures to accompany the instructions. I was pleased with the book and instructions.
