the one downfall is that the book isn't bound really well. the first time i opened it one of the pages came out, and during my first project 2 more did. I think i'm going to just take out all the pages and bind them in a small binder with plastic sleeves (cause the book is great and I plan to make more things inspired from it).
That being said, i love the book and i'm really glad I got it. :)
the most intimidating part of getting started (for me anyway) isn't making the projects, it's getting all the materials necessary without having to hock my car to pay for everything i want. LOL to help with this, Ms Friesen lists her favorite places to buy the clay and other items used in this book, along with the URL to the website. well, that was easy, huh? not so much, because i wanted to buy everything i could from every website listed. i finally had to sit down and make a list, putting them in order of priority.
for me to feel sure i can make something that will actually resemble the original is a real miracle. however, Ms. Friesen's directions are crystal clear, with photos for every step included. her sense of humor also goes a long way in defusing any hesitations i had about getting started.
if you're new to steampunk/steampunkery, you really do need to have this book in your arsenal. i'm also going to be buying her 6 book series along with her book "Polymer Clay And Mixed Media Together At Last". I can't help myself! LOL
Anyway, the writing is excellent and very interesting. Lots of cute humor scattered throughout the directions keep it fun and light reading. Great color pictures and directions for mixing colors and materials. Overall very informative book, great eye candy with a perfect mix of projects and inspirational guest artist highlights. I'm very happy to add it to my Polymer Clay library!
