    Default Sue Heaser Metal Clay

    Well, I do like a good craft book... but I'm well aware of how the publications out there may not live up to the cover story...until I purchased these two metal clay books by the lovely Sue Heaser. It was Sue, a tremendously talented polymer and metal clay artist, who introduced the Art Clay Silver brand to the UK and is the reason why I have my silver clay certificate after all these years.

    I recommend this 'toe in the water' title to all of my students, it covers lots of techniques in my own classes such as all the basics of texturing and cutting out to stone setting and antiquing.

    This next title is an amazing compendium style book with lots of extra information that isn't included in the first title so as not to overwhelm the reader/avid silver clay beginner. The advice ranges from clay types, including base metals such as copper and bronze, to tools and advanced techniques such as making hinges.

    Ohh, thanks for links. I've already read the first one but will look out for the 2nd. I know exactly what you mean about craft books not living up to expectations. I have in the past bought a lot of bag making books in particular and have cringed at each and every one either for poorly thought out methods or not clear enough instructions. It is a real bugbear of mine. I now don't waste my money and know I'm better off just drafting my own patterns.

    I have a quick browse in The Works at crochet books and all of the patterns are so cringe worthy as you say, better off looking at Ravelry!

    I was looking for something just like this. Can't wait to read both of them. Thanks for the suggestion.
