Library Journal Review

Stamping on polymer clay bears little resemblance to stamping on paper, although many of the same materials are used. Stamps may be rubber or reverse impressions made from polymer clay, and the image is impressed into the clay surface, making a patterned relief. Professional artist McGuire (Foundations in Polymer Clay Design) provides detailed information on materials and techniques, with two dozen step-by-step projects for jewelry and accessories. The beauty of these pieces is in the decorative embellishments, such as embossing powders, colored inks, and gold leaf. This is an excellent addition to the growing body of literature on polymer clay. Recommended for collections needing professional-quality material on this subject. (c) Copyright 2010.
