New Polymer clay books

Posted on January 8, 2011

I’ve recently acquired some new polymer clay books and am looking forward to trying out some new things. I haven’t read any of them properly yet but I have had a quick look through and am very excited! Here’s the new ones.

The Complete Book of Polymer Clay The Polymer Clay Cookbook: Tiny Food Jewelry to Whip Up and Wear The Art of Jewelry: Polymer Clay: Techniques, Projects, Inspiration (Lark Jewelry Books) The Art of Polymer Clay Creative Surface Effects: Techniques and Projects Featuring Transfers, Stamps, Stencils, Inks, Paints, Mediums, and More

I already have several books my favourites being
The Art of Polymer Clay Millefiori Techniques: Projects and Inspiration for Creative CaneworkMaking Polymer Clay Beads: Step-by-Step Techniques for Creating Beautiful Ornamental Beads Polymer Clay Color Inspirations: Techniques and Jewelry Projects for Creating Successful Palettes

and there are loads more I want to read! Let me know what your favourites are.


  1. I don’t own too many polymer clay books but accumulated a few as a b-day present and Christmas gift from my dear hubby this past year. I happen to have five of the 7 you show and love them all. The bead book by Carol Blackburn is probably my favorite, then the Donna Kato ones next.

  2. The Carol Blackburn book is endlessly inspiring – the Donnna Kato ones too are incredibly technically helpful. I love the work in one with the blue flower on the cover. I love Grant Diffendaffer’s book too, as a jumping off point – not actually to make beads like his, but to stimulate new ways of working with polymer. Have yet to work through Colour Inspirations…

    Have fun with your stash!

  3. Ooh – Santa was good to you! I agree with 2GC and Claire – the Blackburn is a fantastic jumping-off point. Looks like a busy 2011!

  4. I don’t buy many but for me the best ones are the ones I can allways find something each time I go and look for inspiration.
    So my fav is the bead book, then color inspirations ( I am allways discovering something with this book)
    Kato both not as much as I thought. The others to look at not to own.
