    Good, and loved the explanations but still maybe a little too technical for me We ll have to see I ve got a bunch of Polymer clay just waiting to be shaped.

    Donna Kato is one of the authoritative polymer clay artists and has a product line named for her This is a must read for the dedicated polymer artist or amateur for the projects alone I would not recommend this book for a beginner although beginner techniques like jelly roll cane and Skinner blends are included If you have a bit of experience and familiarity with polymer, you will be able to follow the instructions to create your own projects The photos are clear and projects are interesting I rated it 4 star because the instructions for some techniques are a bit difficult to conceptualize the photo illustrations may skip part of a step.

    So glad I bought this oneThis book teaches you several basic canes which is exactly what I wanted While I didn t care for the projects, by reading through them, I learned steps to take that will come in handy for other projects Includes bullseye, feathers, faces, flowers, leaves,and several others Really enjoyed.
