“35 awesome projects ... there's something fun for everyone to do. Yvonne is a fantastic teacher.” - Bead Unique
“This is a great introduction to a fun new material. Accomplished metal clay artist, jeweler, and teacher Yvonne M. Padilla was among the first artists to work with bronze metal clay. In her new book, she provides basic information about this new material and contrasts it with silver clay, explaining the differences in technique and the behavior of the materials. She also walks readers through helpful troubleshooting for pieces that have gone awry. The 35 projects that are included provide a little something for everyone.” - Bead & Button
“An extremely user-friendly reference guide about working with bronze clay ... An effective and unique approach to instructing readers ... I must give Yvonne five thumbs up for writing a book that appeals to just about anyone who picks it up. This includes jewelry makers, traditional metalsmiths, and anyone interested in custom home décor.” - Metal Clay Today
“Bronze is the newest addition to the craft of metal clay, joining more expensive gold and silver as a medium for jewelers. Padilla, one of the first artists to work with bronze clay, uses it to good effect for antique-looking jewelry projects. Photos of pieces by other artists give additional ideas. Crafters with metal clay experience will be able to use this book after a little practice with the bronze alloy.” - Library Journal

WISH THAT THERE WERE MORE PROJECT INSTRUCTIONAL PHOTOS. THERE ARE SOME INFORMATIVE DRAWINGS TO ILLUSTRATE INSTRUCTIONS THAT OTHERWISE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN PHOTOGRAPHED THAT ARE VERY HELPFUL.
GOOD INSTRUCTIONS ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE IN FIRING TECHNIQUES VS. SILVER CLAY.
