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!

Begining and professional doll and figure makers will find this book an excellent resource. The entire process used by this artist is diagramed and photographed in detail.
The beginner will find everything from buying, finding, and making the most useful tools, through how much clay will be used in a sculpt. Instructions are laid out in clear, clean, methodical steps that can be used as a lesson plan for learning ever more complex techniques.
The experienced artist will be grateful to have so many techniques outlined in one book. No matter how long you have been making figures, you will find something in this book that will make your work easier, more fun, or help you produce a more professional figure. An excellent book; it belongs in every dimensional artists' library.

This book is everything I had been looking for regarding smaller scale full body sculpts. Katherine Dewey so precisely outlines each step, it is incredible! Not a book for a total polymer clay novice, but on the other hand, it is not confusing and difficult to follow like other books I have bought before. She presents the instructions so clearly, and does'nt leave out anything! This is a book that I will cherish for years to come. You will not be disappointed if you are interested in creating realistic figures!

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.

This is a beautiful, profusely illustrated book by THE master of sculpting with polymer clay. It's 144 pages packed *full* of information. The title of this book is accurate - it's truly a "step by step" guide, and it's for those people who are interesting in learning to sculpt lifelike, not cutesy, figures. We've waited a long time for this one. I would have bought it at twice the price.

The art is beautiful - and it seems simple. BUT it is not. This is more for someone who has had lots of practice using polymer clay and knows that they are doing. For me - someone who has used clay enough in her, but never even touched polymer clay...I found this book rather confusing. If you are just beginning, i wouldn't recommend this book - unless you have some killer art skills that is.

A nice book well illustrated with high quality paper. The text is clear and well written. The sculpture, modeling technique seems to me quite good (I am a sculptor) . The only drawback is the proportion of the fingers of the hand in the various figures shown, especially the one on the top page. It makes the hands look not natural and so can be certainly improved.

I think this book is fabulous as an artist and sculptor myself, l very much applaud the meticulous way in which the author has so generously shared their knowledge. I would recommend this book for both amateur and professional sculptors. There is something for everyone here ... five stars...
