    There’s so much information in this e-book! I’ll be referring to it again and again. It’s an essential one especially for beginners like me. It’s very professionally done but easy to understand. Thank you, Ginger, for all your effort—I truly appreciate you and am so glad I found your website and FB groups.

    This book is Amazing! Covers a variety of topics, and gives links to further explain and or purchase items that are mentioned. It details so many topics and gives such insight. It is a book you cannot do without. Well worth the time to read and money to purchase. I can see myself looking at this time and time again. Thank you Ginger for your hard work and willingness to share your knowledge.

    I feel fortunate to have stumbled onto Ginger’s books when trying to finding a sea glass tutorial. All of her books could be titled “The Art and Science of…” Yes, I bought her “Faux Glass Effects.” I was so impressed with the depth of her knowledge and comprehensive research that I then bought “Sanding and Buffing.” Though I am not a newbie to polymer clay, I now have in my collection “Polymer Clay Essentials.” My only regret is that I wish I had read it before I ever ventured into the medium. The format is user friendly, allowing you to highlight and bookmark the text. “Polymer Clay Essentials” demystifies polymer clay, and explains every question you haven’t solved through expensive and headache producing experimentation. There is no doubt that I will read and re-read it many times. Many thanks (again) Ginger!

    Written very clearly, as are all of Ginger’s books. I particularly liked the section about storing sheets and canes and on conditioning clay. I will condition what I need for a project–not the entire package! I had heard that once conditioned, it stayed conditioned! New info!

    I’ve just started working with polymer clay, and didn’t know anything about it other than I liked what I saw when I googled the term. I found Ginger and the Blue Bottle Tree on an internet search, and I have been thrilled with all the information I found there. I purchased the Polymer Clay Essentials e-book and it has answered even more questions that came up once I actually got rolling with the clay. I highly recommend it!

    The e-book, Polymer Clay Essentials is a must have, be you experienced or a newbie to polymer clay. All the questions are answered in an easy to read format with a sprinkling of Ginger to spice it up, the humour is pretty good too! I have been dabbling with clay for a few years, but now at 72, I finally have free time to dig deeper into this versatile medium. Ginger is a first class authority on all things polymer clay without predjudice toward any particular brand. 5 stars.

    I’m very new at trying polymer clay and needed all the information I could get. While searching on the net, I came across an article written by Ginger. I was really impressed and so I bought one of her e-books. Wow! it was great, so I bought another, then another. This one is as great as all the rest; she gives very detailed information, simple easy steps for me to follow, no fluff, just logical, concise, great tips on how to do things and how to organize your work place. Thanks Ginger for all the great tutoring.
