    I admit, some tutorials I have bought have not been worth it. They may be nothing more than techniques that are available for free or they are so complex that it’s not something I would ever tackle or there is a hidden obscure product that was not mentioned in the description. With Ginger Davis Allman’s Faux Lampwork Polymer Clay Tutorial you don’t have to worry about that. This tutorial s very much a time saver if you are interested in faux lampworking. Heeding the steps found within, I was able to achieve satisfying results quickly. I also found suggestions I might not have thought about otherwise. In this tutorial Ginger Davis Allman’s incorporates her usual style which includes science and logic behind the techniques. Now, that ,is something more than you get with many other paid tutorials and well worth it. I have few qualms purchasing a tutorial by Ginger Davis Allman if it is something that interests me. As with most tutorial writers she is responsive to questions or comments.

    My husband and I love to play with PC, we have actually made over $3,000 PC in jewelry sales. There are always new techniques that encourage us to desire to continue, we get lots of inspiration from The Blue Bottle Tree blogs and books. I have a thing for Lampwork beads, but a pocket that can’t afford them. This book is the newest of my collection, when I saw it I knew I had to add it to my collection. It is great! Thank you.

    I have loved every tutorial I have ever gotten from Ginger. Her information and explanations are always thorough and easy to understand. I have made lampworked beads, and the result I got from this tutorial makes the actual glass ones I made look sad. As always, Ginger’s customer service is awesome and she is quick to answer any questions you may have. Definitely a must-have for your tutorial library!

    Holy moly! This is an excellent tutorial and the first I’ve purchased from the Blue Bottle Tree. Certainly not the last. I’ve only been playing with polymer for a few months now and following Ginger’s instructions was easy and made the process so much fun. My technique needs a little practice, but this is definitely a technique that I will bring forward into my polymer work.

    Thanks for a fantastic tutorial, Ginger! I look forward to adding many more of your ebooks to my virtual library.

    Another well written and illustrated technique tutorial from Ginger. As with her other tutorials, she covers the topic -of faux glass in this case- with a breadth and depth you’re not likely to find from other authors. Even when I think I know how a technique works, I learn something new from Ginger’s take. The step-by-step guide is easy to follow, and the best part for me is the detailed coverage of what you must and mustn’t do to get the desired effect, and can or can’t expect from various materials. Ginger’s tone is also very pleasant, with the right touch of humor.
