The book is totally fantastique!
Crystal clear instructions - how to create amazing polymer clay food charms/jewelry - written simply yet sophisticated, detailed photographs, resource information, and even food recipes!
I just thrilled with this book any highly recommend it!
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.
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.Read more ›
It carries techniques I hadn't thought of as well as giving the reader something quick and fun to try with out feeling pressured about their abilities. Even if the best you could manage was a lopsided ashtray for your granddad as a kid, this book gives you a great leg up to doing cute and fun projects that will help you learn to do better and making things you won't feel the least bit embarrassed about admitting you made them.
