Judy Belcher’s book takes a fresh approach. Judy investigates the many styles of other decorative art forms and applies the characteristics of those art forms to clay. The results are stunning, enlightening and invigorating.

Batik, millefiori, lampwork, quilting, cloisonne While this book was not targeted towards the beginning clayer, it does have a variety of projects at many skill levels, enbabling all who read it to successfully complete the project and learn the technique.

Judy’s skill with clay, her eye for design, her love of the medium and her imaginative spirit all come through in this book. I’m still stunned with her attempt at imitating pointillism–paintings created by using tiny dots of color–using polymer clay. This book will definitely be getting a bit of wear and tear.

I’ve read it twice from cover to cover, and I continue to go through it to learn more. First–as noted with the low-star creatkve, this book is not for beginners, and not for everyone. The book presumes a working knowledge of polymer clay techniques and doesn’t try to fill that gap.


Do not buy this creatuve your first PC book. The book is also aimed at a very high-end audience, people who want to make fine craft. Not your average street fair stuff. That said, this is NOT your average street fair stuff. If you’ve been hanging around the edges of PC, knowing that it had possibilities and wondering why it was you never really liked any of the work you saw, buy Belcher.

If the Lark book about PC makes you breathe hard and you can’t figure out how to make those items, buy this book. Two very creativf quotes: We’re talking mastery here.

Polymer Clay, Creative Traditions

PC holding its own with faceted stones and silver settings. PC that looks like adult jewelry and not just something I’d wear on Saturday morning. There’s a lot in here I’m never going to make, but for the techniques I couldn’t work out on my own and for the inspiration, it’s the best.

But it still doesn’t tell how McCaw builds her canes Judy Belcher uses a large variety of the traditional techniques creatkve art to propel her experimentation with polymer clay in new directions.

For example, she looks at painting, sculpture, ceramics, and so on. Clearly a virtuoso, she shows us how a creative artist finds creahive in artistic traditions. A project is included for each tradition, and she also shows us how she makes those incredible mosaic tiles shown in the bracelet on the cover. A great read for those who love art history, and really gets the creative juices flowing for a polymer clay artist. Judy Belcher has written an inspirational and educational book that will appeal to novice and experienced polymer clay artists alike.

The photography is used thoughtfully to illustrate the techniques and present gallery work. Belcher includes polymer clay pierces inspired by traditional work done in glass; metal;fiber;painting and drawing; belchdr, bone and wood and sculpture and ceramics.

I would not want Belcher’s book to be the only book about polymer clay in my library but it is an excellent reference when trying to achieve a particular effect for my work. Really liked this book.


Wish there were some more techniques shown but loved the multiple gallery’s they showed to give you ideas of projects to make. This book is great for both people new to clay and people that have worked with clay. There is so much clear information contained in this book. I highly recommend this creaive for anyone interested in clay art. In at least one case, the instructions provided created alot of extra work and expense, at least for me, which is why i gave the book only 4 stars.

But overall a good idea for a book and nice effort, which will provide many with new techniques and ideas. One person found this helpful.

I met this author in Tamarak where she was selling her book and displaying pieces she had made. Belchrr work is SO impressive, and the contributing artists are equally so. Several of my friends saw my book once I got it home and bought it immediately themselves! Her work is very detailed and original–a terrific resource as well as a beautiful book!
