The Weekend Crafter: Polymer Clay: 20 Weekend Projects Using New & Exciting Techniques (Weekend Crafter)by Irene Semanchu Dean
Synopses & Reviews
Polymer clay is the most interesting new craft material to appear in the last 30 years. And, it's developed way beyond flowery beads and bubble-gum-pink napkin rings. This introduction to polymer clay covers the basics (buying, blending, baking), as well as the beautiful canework that has dominated the craft up till now. But the best part of the book--the part that will make it interesting even to jaded polymer people--is the emphasis on the new techniques being used by polymer artists. Like what? There's photo transfer, a marriage of the photocopy machine and liquid polymer clay. There's the Skinner blend, which produces a delicately graded rainbow blend of clay. There's mokume gane, a Japanese metalworking technique adapted for polymer clay. (Just read the book, OK?) And more. All the new techniques produce handsome and unexpected results with minimal tools and skill. 20 projects, from clocks to fan pulls, supply the reader with great ways to apply their newfound skills. The step-by-step color photography and the clear instructions make it easy and inviting.
