Making Polymer Clay Beads by Carol Blackburn

Although I’m not into making Polymer clay beads I really like this book, Making Polymer Clay Beads by Carol Blackburn. Its a paper back instruction book of 128 pages and retails for $24.95 or $17.36 on Amazon.com.

This book is great for the Polymer Clay beginner for seasoned artist. It starts with describing the many tools you may need or want to work effectively with the clay. It has detailed pictures and instructions on ‘how-to’ make canes, from simple rolls to a beautiful kaleidoscope, that can then be layered over beads of any shape. I love this because making canes that are interesting and balanced is very hard indeed. There are many ideas and examples in easy to follow step by step instructions with illustrations.

It continues with techniques of ‘how-to’ make polymer clay look like wood, leather, coral, abalone, jade, turquoise, and onyx, just to name a few. These make wonderful beads or whatever an artist can imagine.

It then demonstrates how to assemble beads into jewelry and finishes with a gallery of fantastic completed pieces of art done by accomplished artists.

I find that this book is helpful with design ideas and I would recommend this book to any one interested in polymer clay, beading or design.
