For close to a decade now, crafters of many ages have been enjoying the fruits of polymer clays (aka Fimo, Sculpey, and by other brand names) as easy-to-fashion materials for jewelry. Self-taught artisan Carlson raises the bar and concocts 21 personable creatures few will be able to resist. Even better are the marvelously detailed instructions, from the formation of hands, feet, and faces, to solving 21 common problems, such as crumbly clay and (horrors!) breakage. Though needed amounts of material and finished sizes are not included in the directions, very little is omitted in transforming a once humble material into very realistic beings: included are color photographs, clothing templates, explicit instructions about equipment and basic techniques, and other tips (e.g., prebake the eyeballs). Something from the oven that shows a professional artist at work. Barbara JacobsFrom Library Journal:
Polymer clay figures used as characters in cartoon films are familiar to us. Because the clay is so easily worked, it is not difficult to make one's own figures to use in doll houses or other miniature settings. Carlson's manual includes general information on supplies and techniques as well as step-by-step projects for a variety of representative figures from a wide range of age groups. The color illustrations showing work in progress as well as finished figures are excellent, and the often humorous clothed characters are portrayed doing many activities.
