I bought this book because I design jewelry using polymer clay beads made by other people, and I wanted to read more about it.

Even if you have never seen polymer clay, this book, by polymer artisan and author Emma Ralph, will intrigue and inspire you.
I bought this book because I design jewelry using polymer clay beads made by other people, and I wanted to read more about it.
Jewelry--beads, pendants, and earrings--is not the only way you can use polymer clay, however. This stunningly photographed book proves that, with a variety of projects devised by talented and well known artisan Emma Ralph for readers from the beginner group on up to the more experienced.
She is very clear in her instructions and leaves absolutely nothing out--from safety, to amount of clay you will need, to what to do with scraps left over.
When you make a project with this book by your side you are in confident and stylish hands.
Polymer clay is a form of plastic. It is an exceptionally flexible medium which can be baked in a regular oven to a degree of hardness which enables you to make an incredible array of items.
This book has wonderful explanations and is greatly appealing to look at. You will WANT to make things with polymer -- get ready to explore something and have a great time doing it!
Even if you have used polymer clay before, you will learn new techniques and gain experience from this book. There are a number of skill levels to the projects, and the author has marked some of them to note this. I liked that. There are also some really interesting variations explored in some of the projects as well. For example, when you have leftover clay after making one of the projects which involves covering an egg with polymer, you can use it to make pendants. This is illustrated with photographs.

Emma Ralph wrote a great book here! The reason it's so good is that she has wonderful ideas - and they can all be adapted to whatever YOU want to make. If she shows you how to make napkin rings, you don't have to make napkin rings, but you can adapt the techinique she has very clearly explained to many other things. I love this book and can't wait to spend some more time with it.

This is a great book and the only one I have bought about PC so far. It has so many fantastic projects that you will want to try them straight away! The projects are all very colourful and funky and a lot of fun to make. There is a section that covers the basics which is enough for someone who has never tried their hand at PC. Highly recommended!

This is a great book with great photos and in general I love it. However, I gave this book 3 stars because there is absolutely nothing new in here. Every project I have seen before in some other way. While the colors are great, those too are nothing unique and are based in standard color palettes. I'm glad to have it for my library, but it hasn't added anything except taking up a spot on the shelf.
