Mixed Media In Clay: Techniques for Paper Clay, Plaster, Resin and More Reviews
Stimulating, inspiring, exciting. I gobbled this book up as soon it arrived, turning page after page, barely pausing to let anything sink in, because I knew I wouldn't put it away as I couldn't put it down. Other reviewers have discussed the contents, so let me share some of my aha's: the use of plaster to make paintings and collage elements, sculpting with aluminum foil and joint compound (yay!), recipes for air dry clay, homemade molding putty and cake decorating piping of fiber paste to make objects and elements.
I saw one of the author's work at a gallery and was very impressed with the professional results which left me wondering, "how did she do that?". This book answers this question and many more that I didn't know to ask. After the great resource page that describes the types of clay and it's alternatives (plus pros and cons), the book goes on to casting, molding and armatures followed by projects, which serve as inspirations, using the claylike alternatives. It has plenty of pictures and clear instructions. Definitely worth the price for those interested in 3-D projects.
This is an awesome book! Great examples, great information on supplies to use, why to use, and what you can use instead. The examples and projects are excellent. Wonderful book.
This book exceeded my expectations for ideas & techniques in all sorts of clay! I know I will refer to this book again & again.
Not great. Tips and tricks were interesting but not well explained.
I love this artist's work and her books are awesome!
There are a lot of suggestions and fun projects in this book--I am excited to try a couple of the projects and some of the other projects gave me new ideas. Lots of pictures, lots of different clay mediums and ways to use them. I like that this book was not just about sculpting a figure from clay-but other creative ideas too.
