Clay and so much more
I make Art Dolls and I am always looking to make embellishments. This book introduces me to many different types of air drying clay, and its alternatives. The artists also showcase many of their whimsical creations. To create your project; needed tools, supplies, and techniques are described clearly. Instant success! Sharp photo images are also a plus. I am very happy with this book. Review by pop (Posted on 6/2/2016)
A great book on working with non-fired clay!
I am an Art Potter and have been working in stoneware clay over 20 years. I have recently become interested in working with non-fired clay and found this new book. I immediately ordered it and am very impressed with it. The types of clay are clearly described and evaluated, the projects are clearly illustrated and I am even more excited about working with these products. Anyone interested in working in clay would benefit from this book, even a traditional potter like myself can get ideas for use with stoneware clay. Highly Recommend!
