    Polymer clay, a mainstay of arts and crafts for years, is experiencing a surge in popularity, driven in part by social media artists who demonstrate the cute creations possible in this medium. Despite the name, polymer clay is made mostly of plastic (and no actual clay) and is easy to mold into a wide variety of shapes using tools or just one's hands. It can be painted—though this book recommends that only for embellishments—and comes in a wide variety of colors. A dozen designs feature animals and other fanciful entries, each of which also has a function as a container, night-light, mobile, and more. Clear step-by-step instructions and color photos invite readers to get started on their own creations, and one section offers troubleshooting solutions for common problems. Written for the adult reader but with designs that will appeal to kids, this is a useful introduction to the craft for those wishing to get started, or for grown-ups (such as library programming staff) planning activities for kids.
