The Polymer Clay Artist's Guide
A Directory of Mixes, Colors, Textures, Faux Finishes, and Surface EffectsBook - 2013
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.
