Making Miniature Flowers With Polymer Clay Review


Making Miniature Flowers With Polymer Clay
by Barbara Quast

The book begins with a very short section the polymer clay basics before moving on to basic techniques needed to make the flowers in the book.  The flowers this book covers are roses, dogwood, daisies, cherry blossoms, pansy, daffodils, and irises.

Each flower begins with “What you’ll need” – clay colors, tools, paint colors (often optional).  The instructions are step by step – from making the centers (with and without stems) to each layer of petals and matching leaves.  Plus tips and variations.  There are plenty of pictures to help you understand each step.

The last chapter is project ideas – framed projects, jewelry and ornaments,  and other ideas.

To be honest, I’ve only used the rose instructions but I do love them and they are really easy to follow.  Someday I’ll move on to the other flowers.  Overall, this a a good book for sculpting flowers.
