So Faux, So Good
Now Playing: two polymer clay resources
Topic: Books

I recently picked up two books on polymer clay, both of which teach faux techniques.

The Art of Polymer Clay Creative Surface Effects (Watson-Guptill, 2007, ISBN 0823103626) by Donna Kato uses transfers, stamps, stencils, ink, paint, and more to treat the surface of polymer clay projects. In doing so she manages to mimic other mediums such as carved wood, metals, and fabulous stones.

Irene Dean' Faux Surfaces in Polymer Clay (Lark, 2005, ISBN 1579907512) creates the look of marble, scrimshaw, mother of pearl, malachite, leather, cork, pewter, and many precious stones.

These two books teach totally different styles but the results of either will be stunning.
