Correct those Misconceptions

Thanks Ginger, you have done it again! [Polymer Clay Essentials is] an excellent tutorial covering just about any question one might have on polymer clay. If you think you've heard it all be prepared to learn more and correct those misconceptions. I also bought the Sanding and Buffing tutorial. These two tuts have boosted my confidence immensely. Thanks again for sharing your years of research and knowledge.

So grateful for this resource!

As a very novice clay worker, I am finding Ginger's "essentials" book so helpful! Her tips and advice are invaluable, and I find myself running back to her book for just in time learning and questions that I have as I embark on my polymer journey. I am so grateful for this resource!

An ebook everyone should own!

Polymer Clay Essentials is an e-book everyone should own! In Ginger's unique style, all the information is provided in an easy to follow format. The technical information is explained in such a simple way. Believe me, if I can understand it, then you can too. Questions you have as to why the clay is doing or not doing...(fill in the blank), will be answered. I have been claying for a few years and now I know the reason why some things worked and some things didn't. Having the technical knowledge in my toolbox will give me more freedom to create with more chance of getting the result I am after. Thank you Ginger, for all the time and effort you spend gathering your knowledge and for sharing it with all of us!

Check out The Blue Bottle Tree first!

What a great tutorial this is with many really clear photos! My fingers thank Ginger for allowing me to skip most of the zillion grades of sandpaper that I previously used and also for the many useful tips to be found here. Unlike many other tutorials - both free and purchased - Ginger doesn’t bulk it out by repeating stuff. Every part is useful. If you’re just starting out on your polymer clay journey or whether like me you’ve been claying for years, this is a gem you’ll want to keep referring back to. Also as someone who has a “what would happen if...” kind of mind, I’ve learned to check out The Bluebottle Tree first before I spend precious hours with nothing to show for it except some sorry-looking bits of clay that get consigned to The Drawer of Shame!

Simple and Logical

Polymer Clay Essentials should be in your studio if you are serious at all about this medium! Ginger has a great way of explaining complex things. She makes it all sound simple and logical.
