The blurb on the back of the book states that this book is great for complete beginners or experienced polymer clay artists, but I do not recommend this book for complete beginners. I think the minimum experience level with polymer clay for the projects in this book is advanced beginner. A complete beginner would do better to start with the The Polymer Clay Techniques Book, by Sue Heaser.
I am frustrated by one omission in the book. There is no instruction for completing the inside of the Surprise Goose Egg Box. The instructions for the exterior of the egg box are detailed and complete. The finished box is then shown opened just a little, and might be lined (I can't really tell from the photo), but there is no explanation about lining the interior (use clay? fabric? paint?), or what the edges of the egg shell look like when the box is open (clay covered? fabric covered? painted?). Hopefully, there will be some sort of addendum, maybe on a web site, explaining how Ms. Kimle finished the interior of this project when she made it. Despite this omission, I do not regret purchasing this book, and I recommend it.
Pat feeds not only the artist in us but the scientist as well.
From what finishes will work best, to seeing and making unique patterns from both fabric as well as from Mother Nature.
This book like a really good bottle of wine, improves with age. The more you savor it , the more fulfilling it is!
