As for the projects, there are some good techniques used and some pieces that will inspire me to create my own takes on them. However, there were so MANY different things used - stringing, patinas, polymer clay, metal clay, resin, fabric work (including image transfer), shrink plastic, epoxy putty, dip it fantasy film, real beetles wings (or fake fingernails as a substitute), etc, etc, etc - it would be really expensive to get all of the materials needed to make the projects in the book. And you would have to have a WIDE variety of previous skill sets - or take the time to learn new techniques (which I will probably do on a few of these projects).
Basically, if you don't mind spending a lot of extra time to learn the techniques and money to acquire many things that may not be in your current studio - you may be happy with this book. I thought it was just ok and would probably not have spent the money on it had I seen it in a store first.
