There are a number of different approaches to the popular craft of working with polymer clay, which is baked at low temperatures. Sue Heaser demonstrates the following possibilities for this versatile material: make it into colored canes that resemble Italian millefiori glass; model it into shapes, just as you would with regular clay or porcelain; or press it into molds and paint it. Sophisticated polymer clay aficionados may not be drawn to Heaser's bright animal and flower shapes, but this is a particularly good primer for those interested in the material's modeling qualities. The jewelry, buttons, and hair accessories are well described and make excellent projects for beginners.
