Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
A directory of mixes, colors, textures, faux finishes and surface effects.
This resource provides polymer clay artists with a library of 100 finishes and techniques suitable to a wide variety of applications. Illustrations demonstrate various combinations of the finishes, with detailed instructions on how to recreate the effect. An inspiring gallery of work by professional artists puts it all in context and provides endless inspiration.
The Polymer Clay Artist's Guide contains three sections. The first covers the types of clay and other materials, tools and equipment, and setting up a workspace.
The second section uses step-by-step color photographs to demonstrate the core techniques for working with polymer clay, including health and safety, baking, mixing, cutting and sanding.
The Directory of Effects comprises the bulk of the book. Organized by color and then by technique, there are 100 polymer clay swatches with detailed captions identifying the technique used and cross-referencing to the page showing how to recreate it. As well, the captions give ideas for how the effect might be used in jewelry and other applications.
The Directory has three major categories. Each contains a Tile Library of effects created by the world's best polymer clay artists.

- Texturing -- Stamps, sheets, masks, stencils, frisket, creating textures

Now full disclosure, I have a couple of pieces in the book (Saxon Bronze Necklace, Merwoman's Necklace) so keep that in mind, but being as objective as I can be, I have to say that this is one of the most well-organized and exciting polymer clay books I have run across in a long time.
Marie has taken her extensive knowledge of the medium and distilled the best and brightest of technique ideas into a dense collage of excitement. I consider myself to be fairly well versed in polymer techniques, but page after page reveals something I had never even thought of--and the beautifully logical flow of the book makes it a snap to cross-pollinate the ideas that occur to you as you read.
This is a book we have all been needing--a must have addition to any artist's library---and it's even a sturdy hardcover! I honestly can't say enough good things about it, and I promise you, whether you be a newbie or an established artist working in polymer, you are going to absolutely treasure this book.
Now you'll please excuse me, I have to go drool over some chapters again...:)
Veteran? Here are all the techniques you have leared with reminders of the details you may have forgotten.
No particular projects in this book. Techniques are shown, but YOU decide what you will make with them.
I've had the priveledge tp take lots of workshops, and consider myself a veteran and highly skilled with PC.
By far Marie is the Grande Dame of the PC world and she would be the first to tell you that's rediculous and point to other artists. She is generous and humble and funny and kind, and encouraging. Lots of eye candy in the book, from artists we all may not be familiar with. Inspirational and enjoyable and should be a part of every artists library. Buy it. You won't be sorry.
