Review quote

-I especially enjoyed the sections of the book where she covers special effects and surface treatments... Some of her innovative ideas include how to introduce interior crack effects as with the bezel project below or engraving the resin after it has cured... The penultimate part of the book deals with mold forming. The author covers how to use silicone molding putting to create molds from a small object... the instructions on how she achieves different effects is the foundation of the informative and instructional book.- --Beading Gem
