5.0 out of 5 stars What a Hoot! 23 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Even if you never have or never will touch a piece of polymer clay, this book is brilliant good fun. The pictures and the humourous asides are, in my quirky opinion, enough to merit the price. However, if you are working in the medium then this book is just packed,start to finish, with information. This means it is definitely not one of those "skimmers" where you feel you have absorbed all the information in a ten minute flick through the pages.

The text takes you through each technique, step-by-step and is supported by clear photographs so no having to second guess what the author is trying to convey. You could simply copy each piece, but Christi Friesen's approach to learning is obviously to equip her readers with the ability to create their own unique pieces. The book feels well made, compact in size and produced on glossy, quality paper. It is not spiral bound, but I don't personally think that is a problem...just open the page and put something heavy on it to hold it open if you want/need a constant reference.

For all of us out there with drawers, boxes, crates and rooms full of craft bits from our stamping, jewelry making, mixed media pursuits, this book offers us the opportunity to use up our bits and pieces and apply our existing skill sets to something really different. And tool boxes and hardware stores will be your new destinations in the hunt for screws, hinges, nuts and bolts!

5.0 out of 5 stars A super polymer clay book 23 Jan 2011
By Elly
Format:Paperback
Steampunkery: Polymer Clay and Mixed Media ProjectsAn unusual Polymer Clay book full of grate ideas and detailed projects. This book is set out in an easy to follow format with clear project details and high quality colour pictures throughout . A progression of simple to the more challenging projects leave room for the learner to inject their own ideas and creativity. There are many helpful tips and ideas throughout and a handy Resource page at the back of the book to gives the reader a good place to start for gathering materials. The only downside I found was that my over enthusiastic repeated page flicking soon left me with quite a few loose pages.. ooops :D

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book............. 22 April 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book, can highly recommend it. Totally new to steampunk and at the moment got my first creation 'cooking'. All projects are well described step by step and lists all that you need. No problems if you don't have the same items just add your own. The only downside as mentioned by a previous reviewer is that the pages have started to come out of the book. I'm going to take them all out and punch them and put a couple of book rings through. Wouldn't let it put you off though. Ovens just dinged. First ones ready. Yippeeeee

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely content poor booking binding 11 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this book and have become very enthused about polymer clay in general as well as the steampunk stuff. Lots of photos and good instructions written in a humorous way that makes you smile too.
Only down side is that the book has been put together very badly and after a few turns the first batch of pages all start coming out. Amazon very kindly exchanged the first (brilliant customer service btw), but the replacement is doing the same. I am going to persevere as I do love the book but it has lost a star.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great intro to steam punk 7 Dec 2010
By Kristin TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wanted to try some steam punk, and set of armed with some ebay lots of parts, various fimo, and this book, and made some things very quickly that eveyone admires. The book is full of ideas, not just the worked through examples, but similar items, gallerys of other artists, and asides galore. Its not often you find a workboom that you want to take uostairs and read through as well!

I very much doubt I shall actually need another book on this subject, but am tempted to buy more buy the author as the sub texts were so engrossing.

3.0 out of 5 stars way too much jibberish and poorly bound 24 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's like playing "52 Pick-Up", only with a book instead of playing cards...
Don't try reading this outside on a windy day or you will lose most of the book!

It's a bit ironic that the cover shows a strap holding it together, because you will definitely need one! The very first time I opened this book, about 6 or 7 pages fell out at once. No matter how careful I am, it is nearly impossible to open the book more than 45 degrees or turn a page without removing it (and a few random others) completely from its poorly made binding, and I am constantly having to pick the pages off my lap or the floor and stuff them back inside the cover.
That has made reading the book very awkward and frustrating to read, and so far over half of the pages have popped out. Not a very good first impression, and had I seen this book in a bookshop, I would've plopped it right back on the shelf and not bothered purchasing it!

The other thing that I was annoyed with was the overuse of the author's "Steampunk" characters throughout the book... the main (and most annoying) one being "Professor Contraption". The book is absolutely cluttered with babbling from them and I cannot find a single page in this book with over 1 square centimetre of blank page... instead, it is littered with speech bubbles, scribbles and ill attempts of musings that only make me feel that the author is a bit schizophrenic. Also, the poor usage of "British-isms" in their conversations makes it so obvious that she has never been to the UK in her life. I found myself cringing when reading them, as so many made no sense.

For example, one of her fish says: "Oh, I say! I thought I was supposed to be the fish in the porthole... drats!
