I got this book thinking it would be an a-z guide on how to create and make resin figures.
But it's mostly just a glossary of artists who currently are in the resin making field.
Mainly showing the creations the artists have made and although beautiful and amazing to see it is no where near complete enough to help a beginner get their feet wet in the creation of making resin characters.
There are about 25-30 artists included and the book gives a bio on each artist.
Then each artist is basically given 2-3 paragraphs on "helpful" tips of creating resin figures.
Most just gloss over the resin making process (But never an a-z guide) and just offer random tips that aren't all that helpful.
Like one artist says make sure enough air holes in the mold but where am I supposed to go from there?
If you want a coffee table book or one that shows some amazing artwork this is the book for you.
But if you are wanting to actually get into the creation of resin characters it is lacking a lot.

I have to honestly say that I feel a little ripped off purchasing this book. The sample of the book here on Amazon looked great but unfortunately this is the very best part of the book. This book mainly consists of well photographed images but is totally lacking in the "making" department. Most designers give the same advice over and over again. Trivial little things like "watch out for air bubbles". Really? You can't get more basic than that. Any ideas of casting painting and design are gleamed from the few photos that show but do not explain the process or examine the details. So it's really a product picture book. I read it from cover to cover in under 10 minutes. If I had seen the book on a bookstore shelf I definitely would not have purchased it when there are so many other good books out there on most of the things a book like this hints at covering but totally fails. Resin can be a little tricky but do not rely on this for any hints, tips, and secret little tricks. Very, very disappointed seasoned professional. But the photography is well executed as a product picture book with little variety of styles. You will definitely find more information spending 5 minutes on the net then it takes the time to order this book.

Absolutely fantastic book for anyone starting out in the resin casting game, or for anyone familiar with the alt toy / resin toy movement. Full of useful hints & tips, full-page photography, as well as TONS of text collected from the forerunner artists in the resin toy hustle.

Absolute Must-Buy!
