Description

Start making beautiful crafts from polymer clay! Art Makers: Polymer Clay for Beginners is your guide to this kiln-free craft.

Polymer Clay for Beginners introduces artists, art hobbyists, and polymer clay enthusiasts to this versatile, accessible medium. Because polymer clay does not require the use of a kiln and needs only baking in the oven, it is an easy, approachable art form for even the most inexperienced artist to learn.
 
Professional artist Emily Chen demonstrates how to make animal figurines, flowers, cookies, cakesbeads, and more through easy, step-by-step projects. Each project features colorful, styled photographs demonstrating how finished pieces can be used, displayed, and gifted. A comprehensive tools and materials section and detailed information on techniques, baking, and glazing guide artists in their quest to become polymer clay pros.

An inspirational gallery provides even more ideas for those who want to continue learning how to work with this easy-to-use medium. A modern approach to sculpture art, polymer clay is the perfect choice for beginners and crafting enthusiasts.
