In The Art of Polymer Clay, noted artist Donna Kato explains the basics as well as many unusual techniques, including imitative methods that can be used to create the look of semi-precious stones, woven fabric, carved wood, metal, and realistic flowers. Kato's sense of style and color is superb, and her directions are clear and concise. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book is a compendium of so many techniques that it's difficult to know where to start. It's not a project-based book, so if you're looking for something to follow by the numbers, look elsewhere. But if you're looking for a lot of good, sound instruction on clay techniques, this is the book for you. Bring your own ideas and let Donna help you make them reality.
I can vouch for the fact that she knows her stuff; I saw her creating many of these objects, teaching herself the strengths and weaknesses of polymer clay and learning how to push the boundaries of what could be done in the medium. She has the chops, and she's sharing them. Learn from her! You won't regret investing in this book.
I am giving my mom the gift of the older volume since she is more focused on gift ideas...again, like I said were great plus creative. She will love this book as she doesn't care too much about the products and tools, like I am.
No matter what, you cannot go wrong with either one. Enjoy Polymer Clay! What a great world to escape to!
I was not disappointed! She is very thorough explaining techniques as well as comprehensive in her list of tools and supplies.
I highly recommend this book because of the above, but also because it is great fun!
Life is too short not to have fun!
