‘From Polymer to Art’ a review
I have now received my copy of ‘From Polymer to Art’. It is the first edition, a sneak preview before the sale launches in 2011. Each edition will have a colour theme, this first one being Red.
It feels and it looks nice. The paper is a good quality paper and the magazine has been set out beautifully, interspersed with the articles and tutorials are snippets of poems and pictures of things red. There is a page of photographs of different red flowers. In this preview edition the advertising pages are blank but I see there are plenty of spaces for advertising although not so much that it overwhelms the content as in some magazines.
There are 8 tutorials at a range of levels including these fab projects…
Oksana’s work is new to me and I love these berries – so realistic – can’t wait to try it!!

Anja is another artist I did not already know and I greatly enjoyed browsing through her flickr photos.
So the big question – is it worth it? It is expensive but it is a good quality magazine with good content. It only comes out 4 times a year so it’s not a monthly expense. I will certainly be subscribing!
