In 2004, The Art of Metal Clay introduced thousands of readers to the moldable, malleable clay that becomes pure metal after it’s fired—and became the metal clay bible. Now author and jewelry-making instructor Sherri Haab has updated her bestselling book with the most current information on this revolutionary medium, in The Art of Metal Clay Revised and Expanded Edition(Watson-Guptill; July 27, 2010; $24.99). The book includes invaluable information on:
–Using the new, highly sought-after bronze and copper clays, with must-have instructions for successful firing
–New bead projects: creating beads around silver cores, bronze beads, and bead caps for lampworked beads
–Up-to-date information on firing with stones, plus a new technique for setting particularly delicate stones
–Using the recently developed methods for water etching and electro-etching
–Utterly inspiring galleries of work by prominent contemporary metal clay artist
Ten all-new projects!
Best of all, The Art of Metal Clay Revised and Expanded Edition comes with a bonus DVD showing exactly how to implement over 20 of Sherri’s signature techniques by demonstrating four projects: Heart Bead with Center Stone, Gold and Silver Flower Ring, Square Bezel Picture Frame Charms, and Star Bezel Polymer Clay Charm Bracelet.
