Exactly what I was looking for!

I am relatively new to polymer clays and was feeling abit overwhelmed not knowing what to do next. This book caught my eye after having looked at several books that were just abit too 'newbie'. Kris Richads bridged that gap between 'newbie' and what the heck do I do now phase with this well written book:) The basics section in part one was more than just basics, which was exactly what I was looking for and the projects in part two are simple but could be modified to the intermediate/semi-advanced with ease:):) All around great book and worth every red-cent:)

If you have a question, you will get an answer from this book! Kris Richards has been writing about Polymer Clay for many years and all of her books give you a wonderful basis to build your knowledge of this incredible medium!

One of my Two most favorite polymer clay books.

I have every polymer clay book and phamplet that I know of. Let's just say that's quite an extensive library of at least 30 - 50 publications. Out of all of them, "New Ways With Polymer Clay," and Sue Heaser's "Polymer Clay Techniques" are my most loaned out copies."New Ways With Polymer Clay," has always been inspirational to me. The projects are ones that you just can't pass by without trying. My very first project using canes was Kris's Christmas ball ornaments. It's still a cherished object.The pictures are beautiful. The book is well written. You'll LOVE "New Ways With Polymer Clay!"

I go back to this book over and over again

I think this book is great for a number of reasons.I'm a professional polymer clay artist but found this book immensely helpful because it contains a comprehensive collection of basic polymer clay information. The projects designed for beginners to intermmediate clay users can also appeal to artisans who do production work. This book broke new ground by being the first serious publication to explain how to cover pens and light bulbs. Both techniques that have become very widely used in the polymer clay world. I especially like the use of the illustrations done by the author. What a talented lady!I teach polymer clay technique to hundreds of people every year and I recommend this book as the one to buy for people who are new to clay or have a limited knowledge of the medium. There are lots of great books on clay, but many are intimmidating to people at a beginning or intermediate skill level. The projects in this book are well thought out and beautifully finished. Having projects that are easily followed and can reproduced as shown, is the best way I know for people to build their confidence in the medium, preparing them for more difficult technique. I would recommend this book to anyone!

New Ways With Polymer Clay

Kris Richard's book is an excellent book. In fact, I own two: one for my use and one for my school art students' use. In this well written and clearly illustrated book, there is accurate information on the comparable strengths and ease of workability of various clays. Also, basic use and techniques for working with the clay are covered to help both beginner and advanced clayers.With this sound preparation, the reader is able to progress through a variety of projects from jewelry to home decor. In fact, the Internet Pen project was such a hit with my art students, I still refer to it when teaching them how to cover pens. It is wonderful to have projects that succeed time after time due to proper and concise directions.I would highly recommend that this book be added to any clay enthusiast's library.
