SUMMARY- I got this book in a lot of cloth dollmaking books I bought off e-bay and was pleasantly surprised when I leafed through it. This came along before polymer clay in all its fantastic colors became available. I would recommend this book for variety in miniature making, which I have done little of except as props for some of my toys - so your mileage may vary. A more experienced miniature maker may not be as impressed with her work as I was, but I think Ms. Duda's techniques look fantastic.
