5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book! May 31 2011
By RenD
Format:Paperback
I have been playing with polymer clay for about 3 yrs. now. I started making ornaments, then jewellery and now I've moved on to sculpting. I stumbled upon Katherine Dewey's website [...] and I was amazed at her talent and that's why I purchased the book. This book is wonderful! It's full of tips for sculpting differences in anatomy, expressions, measurement, it's full of pictures and breaks down the parts of the body so it's not too intimidating. While I wouldn't recommend this book to a beginner who has never touched polymer clay, for someone who is motived to start going in different directions with the clay, this book is a must-have!

This book passed my expectations! I give it a 5 *rating because; it is written for someone with very little experince with Polymer Clay to understand. It also shows you how to make your own tools from things you may find in your home. Yet it shows you step by step, with lots of photos, the way to get great results. I love this book!
Thanks.. to Katherine Dewey, I will be looking to buy more of her books.
