    this is a really good book for those starting to use polymer clay. it tells you how to get the most out of your clay. all the tools and cheaper options for tools. variaty on what your making, like more then on kind of ice cream cone. and how to turn what you make into jewelry. the one thing that made me smile, is that it also has recepies for real food.

    A very cute guide to getting started with polymer clay. The introduction is very detailed, and eases beginners into the craft with confidence. There were some fantastic tips that I've never seen in other books, including a recipe for hand scrub to help remove color from your hands before switching to new clays.
