Fairies, Gnomes & Trolls: Create a Fantasy World in Polymer Clay

The Complete Poems of Carl Sandburg: Revised and Expanded Edition - Carl Sandburg I loved the way how this book introduces you in every project with a little story about the gnome, troll or fairy in question.
It's so sweet and brings a drop of magic in the creation process.
On the other hand, figures are not exceptional and understood one project, understood all. Maybe for this reason the first projects are very well explained, step by step, and the last ones are like "ok, you do know how it works so it's not necessary that I tell you more". That doesn't mean that they are easy to do: they aren't.
Anyway: a wonderful book for people to want to learn sculpting in polymer clay and loves magic and fantasy.
