Book Description

Nov. 1 2007
Open the doors of celebrated artist Teena Flanner’s studio and an astounding sight will greet you: a glittering vision of vintage-inspired papier-mâché figures, reminiscent of treasured keepsakes from long ago. Now, for the first time ever, Teena reveals her unique techniques for making these wonderfully nostalgic creations: her secrets for working with and making molds; for mixing, pouring, drying and finishing the papier mâché; and for getting great effects with paint, glitter and other embellishments. Forty projects, organized by season, include darling rabbits, baby chicks, lambs, and a flower basket for spring; summery seashells and a mermaid; a fall harvest of turkeys, pumpkins, and a fruit bowl; and a wintertime celebration of sparkling trees, snowmen, Santas, and ornaments.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Nov. 28 2007
By S. Pennell - Published on Amazon.com
Lovely photos and detailed directions for specific pieces. Of course, you need the molds for these pieces. There are instructions to make molds, but you need the positive to make the negative. This would all be fine, except there is no Resources List. After spending hours on the web, I haven't come up with much. But I'm sure I will. However, my attempt to find "sterling tinsel" yielded nothing. This book is well done as far as it goes and inspirational - but frustrating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring! Feb. 13 2008
By Mom of 2 Boys - Published on Amazon.com
If you are creative and resourceful, this book is a guide AND an inspiration. There are a handful of projects that don't call for a mold, including her ever-popular snowmen. The rest? Sure, you need molds, but I saw three last weekend while antiquing and one was only $6 (and it was a lamb, too!). They don't have to be old, just a mold you like! Really, NOT HARD TO FIND.

This book gave me insight into the process and acted as a jumping point for my own projects. I had many lightbulb moments while reading this " ... Ah ha! THAT'S how you do THAT!", etc. I've got a project baking in the oven as I type and I'm so glad I checked this book out of the library. I'll probably buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful! Jan. 14 2008
By Susan VanHecke - Published on Amazon.com
As lovely to look at as learn from, Teena Flanner's unique artistry is revealed in page after gorgeous page. Throughout, the author's warmth and passion for her craft inspires even beginners to go for the magic. As Flanner writes, "perfection is not my goal," it's all about loving the process. With this beautiful and informative guidebook in hand, budding papier-mache artists are off to an excellent start.

5.0 out of 5 stars SPLENDID Dec 10 2007
By S. Bagwell - Published on Amazon.com
This book is as lovely as the author/artist herself. As a collector, I never had the understanding or appreciation for the art that I should have until opening the pages of this book. Teena takes you through the step by step process she goes through in creating each of these "one of a kind" pieces. Teena has now inspired me to learn the craft as well as collect. How kind of her to share her secrets!!! I especially enjoyed all her childhood/inspirational stories that she shared with us throughout the book. Family and nature certainly fill her heart!! As a photographer myself, it is an incredible joy to turn the pages to see picture after picture of as she journeys through the seasons show casing only a small sample of her special art. She even shares her precious pets with us!! This was a much anticipated book for me as a collector, but I'll be sharing it with friends for Christmas that enjoy my collection for their coffee tables as well.....it's that special! And then, after the holidays a new hobby awaits!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars not what I was looking for Dec 27 2009
By Zel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed to find out that all the projects are made from molds. I was looking for hand sculpted items, not ones that I have to purchase a mold or create a mold. This should have been stated in the write-up.
