This is my #1 pet peeves in the metal clay book world. They do not make it clear that this book is for use of their brand name of metal clay. Also that this book is not for beginners. I guess the publisher assumes that because of the use of the terms mixed media in the title people with little or no knowledge of clay/metal art world. Could figure it out.
Yes you can use the other brand of metal clay only if you adjust the temps and shrinkage rates and all the other minor differences.
But thats another story! So getting back to the book at hand, She does cover information about all the types of clay offered by the company she works for and does go into depth on the properties.
Also covering the fundamental techniques. The projects do run the range of items. Not all jewelry from slumped glass to dolls.
The pictures are a little on the small size. But they do show the subject matter and not a excess of the work surface as so many do. They are not number or indicated to the procedures which are numbered.A major flaw for beginners. The material and equipment list for each project is at the start. The real nice touch in this book is the Observations & Alternatives sidebar, which covers safety or substituting items. The gallery pictures are nice and they relate to the chapters. The last chapter is a much to short trouble shooting question and answer section. The section on mixing the gold and silver clay was a nice touch. I own it
