I have taken out many books from the library on polymer clay but never saw this one. Even if I had, I might have bought this one. It is an excellent book for a beginner to own. The author does not go into a lot of details or history of polymer clay but it does provide easy laid out photos and step by step instructions for actually working with clay and shows you different processes. It really got me to picking up clay and working with it. My first one was tackling the abstract Kaleidoscope and to do that you have to learn the blending Skinner technique. Plenty of books have that but having the step to step in nice sized text makes this book stand out.
As some people mention it has quite a few floral descriptions but I take this as just showing a method which one can use their own creativity to figure out what else one can create with clay. Though anyone can find a lot of videos and tutorials online, I found that having the book to glance out while working with the clay very helpful. Much easier than scrolling back and forth on a monitor or PC especially because your hands have polymer clay on them.
There is no need to follow the instructions perfectly but close enough gets you in the ballpark. For instance in the kaleidoscope instructions in mentions using four 1.5" canes. I did an oops, and didn't pay attention to that, so i started with four canes of my own sizing. It worked and though mine didn't come out quite like the picture, it came out with a beautiful pattern.
I also have the book "The Complete Book of Polymer Clay" by Lisa Pavelka. That book provides a lot of tips and details on clays themselves. I read that book thoroughly and still refer back to it, but it was Yonat's book that got me actually moving with the clay.
*as a note - thanks to other reviewers that mentioned there are a few typos in this book. It was good to know I wasn't alone on noticing them.
The book gradually builds knowledge in polymer clay through clear photo demonstrations, simple instructions and very helpful tips. It includes the most basic and classic techniques, as well as advanced and original ideas and projects.
After working with polymer clay for over a decade now I find this book refreshing, inspiring and useful!
A surprising merit of this book is its size. Although it contains a broad range of instruction and ideas it is very compact, making it practical and easy to carry with you and place on your work table! Please note that accordingly, the print is rather small, so if this poses a problem, you might consider the larger print version, or prepare your spectacles.
I subscribe to a weekly video course online and Cindy Leitz is really good at giving complete and detailed instructions.
But I have never seen such a GREAT book until I saw this one. Every instruction is clear and precise and when you done looking at the entire project, YOU HAVE NO QUESTIONS! All your quesitons have been addressed.
Every other book I have ever purchased gives sketchy instructions and leaves out many steps, I suppose, in the interest of space available for each project. But this book tells you EVERYTHING you need to know.
What a GREAT book - beginners should have this on their work table.
Anyway.. This book teaches you to make flowers and shading colors, and how to apply this to other stuffs, as pens and so on.
This book teaches you how to make a *cane* with a flower inside
it's a good reference book, and it has some good ideas, but I wished I had in paperback edition.
This book is not for the already expert cane maker but ideal for everyone else! I absolutely love this book and highly recommend it. 5 stars from me!!
