Working with polymer clay should be fun and give you a feeling of accomplishment. The more skills you add to your body of knowledge, the more you will be able to achieve with your clay and your art.
The effects that you can create with polymer clay are many and varied. Polymer clay can be combined with a huge range of materials and adapted to many different applications. The more you play with the clay and try out different techniques, the more things that you will be able to achieve. This book is a compendium of easy-to-follow techniques and ideas to help you on your journey of exploration. Many of them are straightforward and easy to execute, so it does not matter how much experience you already have. Dip into the different sections of the book and simply try things out. Flip around to different pages and try combining the effects you find there. Such experiments will feed your creative mind and help you develop your own distinctive ideas and methods.
Although once marketed as a children's toy, polymer clay is now a fully fledged art medium in its own right. It combines beautifully with other mediums, opening up many avenues of experimentation. The techniques in this book can be applied to almost anything--jewelry, buttons, vessels, sculpture, home decorations and more--to add depth, dimension and beauty. Once you begin playing with polymer clay and trying out new techniques, you will soon find yourself able to create new effects and finishes of your own.
About this book
The first chapter provides an overview of materials, tools and basic techniques for working with polymer clay. Use this information as a quick reference source whenever you need to brush up on the basics. The second chapter, the directory of effects, is what this book is really about. The effects are divided into seven general categories, and each category features three sections: techniques, tile samples and a gallery of finished pieces by polymer clay artists. The seven categories are designed to make the content of the book easy to access and digest, but don't treat each category as a separate entity. Combining techniques from different categories will open up far more opportunities for your polymer clay work.
