by Danielle Proud
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book, 23 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is just one of my favourites. The craft projects are just so easy to follow and the techniques are so versatile that if you have a creative mind you can so much more with these. Includes all sorts of projects from mosaic to making your own oven gloves, up cycling old furniture etc. If you are a crafty person you'll love it. I borrowed it so many times from the library then decided to buy my own from amazon. I bought a second hand but it was in a very good condition almost looks new. If you are a crafty person you'll love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best buy ever, 23 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Digital Textile Design (Paperback)
I am a Surface design student and I struggle with digital textile designing. This book is the best book on this subject. Includes step by step tutorials which are very easy to follow. Gives a brief description of the current textile designers and the techniques they use to make prints. So much better stuff than what I have learned during the two years of my course in uni. Everything I wanted to learn is inside this book. So happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend it to a friend. Go buy it seriously.

2.0 out of 5 stars Buy these from Pound land, 30 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The bottles are as described but I feel like I have been ripped off because I saw the same bottles ( PACK OF 2) in a pound shop. Did not realised at first that I was paying too much for these. I think they are charging too much for these. So anybody who is looking for these should check there local pound shop first. You can get six of these for £3 from there rather than paying £7 for this lot.

Water Clear Casting Kit 2 - 1kg resin
Water Clear Casting Kit 2 - 1kg resin

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product poor instructions, 30 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The kit arrived on time. It was my first experiment with resin casting and I struggled a lot with mixing. They provided a mixing recipe with the kit but it was for mixing 1kg of resin. I wanted to make small samples. This is the only reason why I have given them 4 stars. I wish there was a mixing recipe for small quantities which was less technical for a first time buyer. The resin was not setting properly so I just kept on mixing more and more catalyst each time. Other than that I think there is nothing wrong with it and the resin is of good quality. I ended up with a few good samples as well. I think an improved recipe is a basic thing which can easily be improved and be provide with the product.
