And: Thank GOODNESS it's not a "project" book! This is an art form! Can I have a few more exclamation points? This medium is riddled, if not ruined, with step-by-step books that tell you exactly how to make work exactly like the work in the picture and leave you with no actual new skills or understanding. That's not art (IMO).
Wait wait, there's more: Thank GOODNESS it's a "technical" book. It's a "technical" medium! It's chemistry (oops, was I not supposed to let anyone know that there's more chemistry to the "poly" than there is "clay" to the second part of the name?). The stuff changes when it bakes. There's a reason you're not supposed to let raw clay contact food prep surfaces... Other artists get books about the technical elements of their media. Why not polyclay?
I saw this book at the store and let it sit. One more over-promised polyclay book, flashy pictures on the front, boring step-by-steps inside. Then it appeared in the library and I checked it out, and now I'm back to buy my own copy. And I'm not even a polyclay artist! I like the way the color information is presented and am working my way through the exercises in textiles--the information about color is THAT good and THAT accessible, compared to virtually every other color theory book available.
Finally, it has been a while since I've looked at polyclay books, largely because so much of the content IS S-B-S, and it's good to see work of artists I haven't seen in every other compendium.
Heads above the typical polymer how-to books, this volume offers instruction and inspiration that focuses on polymer clay as a learning tool that readers can use to explore their own color instincts and preferences and develop their own palettes.
