With easy-to-use polymer clay and these exciting projects kids
can experience the creative pride of making their own beautiful
crafts. Colorful photos show how to do it all, with the basics from
safety to supplies to techniques covered. Instructions explain how
to condition the clay, mix colors, use additives, and shape the
polymer. There's even a special section to guide parents and
teachers. The super-cool effects youngsters can create include
marbling, painting the clay, and image transfer. Best of all, no
kiln is required, because polymer hardens in an ordinary oven.
Everyone will have fun fashioning these beads, jewelry (such as an
African mask pin), imitation scrimshaw, covered buttons, picture
frames, game boards, and more.
