More About the Author

I'm half of the mini food sister duo behind Inedible Jewelry and The Polymer Clay Cookbook. Food in all forms- real, miniature, photographed, sculpted, you name it!- is my passion. I especially delight in sculpting miniature foods and making them into wearable art in the form of jewelry. When I'm not sculpting, I'm cooking real goodies in my vintage kitchen, or teaching others how to make mini food.

While I am not currently interested in producing food designs with polymer clay, I am interested in learning more about working with polymer clay in general. I am a complete beginner. I found the background information about working with this substance, and the authors' advice about all aspects of the hobby, to be clear, straightforward, and extremely helpful. The recipe for making a hand-cleaning substance is easy, and sounds great. Kudos to the authors for the novice-friendly front section of the book. Although I haven't created any of the food pieces they include, these items are very realistic looking, but with a wonderful bit of whimsy.

I was excited when I first read about this book. I couldn't wait to get a copy. Finally it came out and I waited until my local bookstore had a copy for me to look at before buying. I ended up putting it back. I'm a beginner at polymer clay and still wasn't impressed.
It's really directions you could figure out on your own, just by looking at the picture. The treats are overly simple--what you see is what it is--a flattened squish of clay on top of a rolled up ball. There's no special textures or techniques you couldn't find with a search on yahoo if you needed to - a ball tool for dimples, a spatula side for lines. There is nothing more detailed than sesame seeds. (I specifically was looking for things like the look of piped icing on cupcakes, or the messy smeared icing and crumb texture of a cake slice - you won't find it here.) Also, the treats on the cover are pretty much all that are in the book - maybe 15 projects. I was surprised by the book's small size when I found it on the shelf.
Maybe buy it for your 7 year old who wants to start making some gifts for her friends.

I've been working with polymer clay for about 20 years and I have purchased over 100 books on polymer clay, some good, some bad. This is one f the better books that I have purchased. This instructions are very clear and are step-by-step, with photos. What I found really wonderful about this book was the fact that the author added recipes to go with the items she made in clay. Like she made cinnamon roll earrings and with that she added an actual cinnamon roll recipe. There are many other recipes that coincide with the polymer clay items in the book. All around a beautifully written book.

My little grand-daughter has been "squishing" and "mooshing" my clay for quite some time now so I ordered this book thinking it might take her to the next level of being able to make something pretty and useful that she could be proud of.

I own many polymer books but this one is a pure delight! The first chapters explain various clays, tools, coloring and basic techniques in a way that's informative without a lot of gobbly-gook. Then it's "on to the cooking!" My grand-daughter is only a "beginner reader" but she was able to understand most of the instructions with minimal help because they are detailed and easy to follow with each step phtographed as clear as I've ever seen! (Koodo's to the photographer!) At the end of the day we were both thrilled with the charm bracelet she had made "all by herself" and... well,it was one of those days that memories are made of!

PLUS, as soon as she was out the door I was popping out bracelets of my own for family and friends and having a grand time of it.

Experianced clayers or "newbys" will enjoy this book

Format: Paperback
The authors (sisters) started using clay when young and "haven't been able to put it down since". I appreciated that in the book, the authors shared their hard earned experience with clay, since it takes most people many years of trial and error to figure out these lessons.

The Polymer Clay Cookbook is written for the beginner (child or adult) with projects which even though they are simple, they are still professional looking and fun! In terms of the book's subject matter, the authors suggest that food does so much more for us than just taste good; it also brings back comforting or exciting memories of enjoyable times in our lives. And the polymer clay creations allow us to continue enjoying these treats and the memories they evoke (plus, calorie free!).

The book starts with good sized sections on clay and jewelry techniques. They explain about clay conditioning and coloring the clay, as well as giving information on tools, baking, glazing and storing. I really liked their trouble shooting tips for when things go wrong and how to avoid or fix those types of issues. They also have explanations of simple jewelry making techniques, which is worth the cost of the book in and of itself!

The remainder of the book includes five chapters of different types of food items made from polymer clay. A fun addition to The Polymer Clay Cookbook is that there are real, edible recipes sprinkled throughout the chapters, a few of them even have a clay counterpart (California Roll - Yum!). It is a big help that each "recipe" comes complete with very clear step by step photos to assist in making the clay foods. Tips are scattered throughout the book, like the recipe for a sugar scrub that will get all of the clay off of your hands.
