I decided to edit my review after completing several project. While at first I was quite frustrated because this book wasn't what I expecting. These projects are all soft bodied - only the head, hands and feet are polymer clay. This wasn't made clear in the description of the book.

However after making a troll and a witch - both modified, I really how much fun it can be to put your time into making those tricky parts and using a soft, poseable body which can stand on its own. I also have a tricky time with that. I picked up some great tips for costumes, hair, and armatures that I know I can use in other projects.

Her directions are clear, though at times you'll be told to do this like in this project... but at least she gives page numbers. Honestly though if she repeated the steps each project the book would be twice as thick. It takes time and practice to master a head and hands and this book really gave me the impetus to work on skills and not worry about sculpting a body.

I am a big fan of Dawn and have always wanted to know how she creates her Oddfae. This book tells and shows you step by step how to create some projects. Very concise instructions, photos galore. Once you make one of her projects, you are only limited by your imagination.

The characters are very different from other Fairy Clay books. The are very well illustrated and your own variations would be very easy to make from the excellent instructions.

This is an absolutely amazing and freeing book. Love it. This book provides a platform to jump into a new realm of creative possibilities and creations. A friend and I got together and spent a most enjoyable afternoon working on creating some fantastic characters. Thank you! A must for any Polymer Clay personal library.

The clear directions, supported by color photos make the creating experience fun. The stories the author has given to explain the creations are very imaginative and quite humorous!!
My work with polymer clay has been self-taught, and this book did not let me down. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to create something "a little off the beaten path".
Some great tips for making your own tools too!
I am now looking at the world in a much different light---and smiling more! I will be watching for more books by Dawn Schiller!

I am a beginner in clay-making, and this book is fantastic! The pictures and directions were wonderfully, simple. I surprised myself of the results of my first two heads. I love this book and highly recommend it for having fun making the imaginable fae figures.
