Near the start of this book there are sampler/sneak peek pages that provide a glimpse of the surface treatments explained in the book. These get your saliva flowing for what is ahead, and are a quick way to review techniques when you are down the track.
You learn lots of techniques and you are provided with instruction for using them in highly appealing projects – jewelry, accessories and home decor.
As you can expect with Sandra McCall, the step by step photos are large and clear. She likes color and embellishment.
I think all her brooches are marvellous. I particularly like the stained glass effect she shares.
The imitation bakelite buttons are super easy and look great on the fabric tote bag that she designed as a project for this book.
I intend to make the coaster and caddy set using her fun “polymer painting”! technique.
The question is: which one first? I’m inspired by everything.
Sandra’s writing style is relaxed and chatty and she sprinkles helpful hints throughout the book. I’m partial to this author and for good reason. Once again, this book by Sandra McCall is a winner.
