I got this book as a gift and have loved it ever since I opened the first page. There are tons of photos and very detailed instructions that are really easy to understand and replicate, even for novice sculptors (like myself). The book goes over info on proportions and how to measure out clay, what types of clay are available and their pros and cons, setting up armatures, and even goes in to detail on how to make clay tools for yourself out of clay and other common craft items. This is a very good book for anyone starting out in figure modeling with polymer clay.
