And so it came in a big yellow envelope – a long awaited wonder. Since I was very young, international mail for some reason puts me in a wonder expectation mood. Maybe because when I was little, my Mom’s friends used to send me toys and sweets from overseas.
But this time it wasn’t a toy or a sweet – it was Marie Segal‘s new book, “The Polymer Clay Artist’s Guide” with four of my designs featured in it. A present as sweet as the ones I used to get when I was a little girl. I want to thank Marie and her publishers, Quarto Publishers, for this wonderful opportunity! You were very easy to work with, and I have enjoyed the experience!
The book itself is really interesting and is, in fact, more of a polymer clay encyclopedia. Marie did a terrific job on explaining lots of polymer clay techniques. Each technique is illustrated by images of beautiful work by Marie or other talented polymer clay artists, inspiring you to try it out and make something of your own. Some of the works featured in the book are so beautiful and imaginative, they’ll make your jaw drop! 🙂
Four of my designs were featured. They each demonstrate a particular polymer clay technique – mosaics, carving, filigree, and caning.
I have limited page views to my designs not only for copyright protection, but also for not spoiling surprise for you, my dear friends. You are going to love the book.
Here is a closer look at the featured designs
Thank you again, Marie, it has been great meeting you and working with you! Thank you, Sarah and Shelley from Quarto Publishers, for all of the effort, dedication and excellent work you have put into this project! And thank you, my dear readers!
