That's a big bang for your buck!" --Bead Design Studio Magazine

But oh my, the projects! No stars! Some of the instructions are OK, but too many are just horrible -- too long and unforgivably confusing with numbered paragraph steps not matching correspondingly numbered pictures, and paragraphs steps running together without clarifying pictures. You can get away with skipping all too many of the projects and save yourself a heap of polymer clay. However, doing them would help in understanding the science, and later better-written projects depend on earlier ones. Oh no, it doesn't stop there, but basically, it seems as if no one was at home to spot the amateur copy-editing, including the authors. This book needs to be re-issued with serious re-editing, without using Watkins-Guptal Publications. And please, if Victoria Craven is still Executive Editor, fire her! This book is probably the best book on PC color theory, but c'mon, it could've been so much better.
I have always felt held back by my color choices with polymer clay so this book is perfect for me. Plus, there are plenty of inspirational pictures as well as some fun looking projects.
If you want a book that "teaches you to fish" rather than just giving you the fish, this is the book for you. I am fairly confident that this is going to be a well used reference book in my polymer clay library, it is not a light read by any means.
