Just what I was looking for... Aug 2, 2008
I think that I own or have read just about every polymer clay book out there. This one has some recipes for faux gemstones that I haven't seen in any of the others, particularly one for turquoise that can produce a flat surfaced object instead of the bumpy surface that all the other books have for turquoise. Most of the projects I thought were very attractive. Some of the instructions could have been written more clearly, but I believe that any reasonably experienced clayer could figure it out.
