Guild review:

 

This charming book gives detailed instructions on how to make a series of life-like animals: a mouse, cotton tail (hare) harp seal, black bear, Basset hound, white-tailed fawn, red fox, bull frog, bluebird, and finally a Siamese kitten.

The book starts with general instructions when using polymer clay and the tools and techniques used to make the animals. Each animal has its own detailed step-by-step instructions, each step illustrated by a photograph and text. The end of the book covers ways to alter the size, pose and finish of the pieces. Katherine is a very skilled modeller and she has passed on her expertise to the benefit of us all.

If your area of interest is modelling this book will be an indispensable part of your library.
