INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions aren't broken down much except by paragraph, but you get photo illustrations of the steps to take in creating each part of the doll. I was especially impressed with how he creates feet.

SUMMARY- Mr. Johnson's books are expensive, but well worth it. I now have two of the three and hope to get my hands on the last one as well. He has also published great articles in "Doll Crafter & Costuming" and "Dollmaking: Crafts & Designs". He is also a salesman, so those interested in marketing their own work would find his business advice useful as well. I highly recommend his books to those with an interest in polymer clay artistry and those interested in cross discipline artwork.
