Are you ready to go? The projects start with the easiest and also grouped by the techniques you'll learn. I really liked that. At the top of the page it show you what technique you'll be learning with this project. For instance, with the first project: Stamped Charms, you'll learn Roll, Texture and Create a Satin Finish. Plus, a chart tells you how big the charm will be and what you'll need for this project. There's also extra tips with each project about how to do something easier or get rid of unwanted texture from your Teflex sheet. The projects graduate to harder and harder projects, learning new techniques with each one, right up to working with Paper (sheet) clay and how to assembly dry clay with an overlay. The final project is one with Copper clay, since it requires a few more tools and techniques. There is only one that can be Torch Fired, so be careful if you want to work with Copper and make sure you get the right clay. At the end is 'Beyond the Basics' with tips on Making connections, reconditioning/reclaiming clay, how to fix mistakes and how to repair broken pieces. All in all this is a great book for the beginner. It outlines everything you need to know and what you need to begin working with Metal Clay. I think even ones that have worked with it for a while would enjoy it and perhaps learn something from it, even if it's just something they'd forgotten or hadn't thought about. I highly recommend this book if you've been thinking about starting to work with Metal Clay. Even if there's a class or instructor in your area, this is a great book to have on your bookshelf to refer to afterwards for more tips or reminders of what you learned.
Keep a watch on my Etsy shop, KayzKreationz for new Glass Kreationz and Jewelry that will be featuring pieces made with Metal Clay.
