Polymer Clay Book of Month - April - Fairies, Gnomes, & Trolls by Maureen Carlson

Polymer Clay Book of the Month

If you are new to KatersAcres, welcome to the clay fun, wonderful, a tiny-bit crazy, but mostly a laid back learning zone! If you are not new to KatersAcres, welcome back. My goal with everything that I do here on the website is to make polymer clay engaging, fun, and accessible to everyone. You don’t need to be a professional artist to use this versatile medium. One of the new things I’m doing in 2016 is choosing one polymer clay book of the month to share with you. These books may be brand new, like January’s “Dogs” Book by Christi Friesen, or older and well loved, like this month’s Fairies, Gnomes, & Trolls by Maureen Carlson.
