Tiny Babies by Barbara Felts. The booklet has 24 pages (approximately 6 x 8 inches) and it is illustrated with over 90 color pictures. You will learn how to make a 4 inch awake baby as well as a sleeping baby. The author advise that the techniques in this book were designed to be used with PROSCULPT and will not work well with CERNIT because of its unique properties.
NOTE: The size of the book is not important, the knowledge that the artist is passing on to you is larger than the book. I think the book is worth more than the price I am charging. It is a very good tutorial.
Polymer clay hardens permanently at low temperature without significant distortion. It can be cured at temperatures created in a typical home oven generally at 265 °F to 275 °F (129 °C to 135 °C) for about 15 minutes per 1/4" (6 mm) of thickness and it does not shrink or change its texture during the process.
Polymer clay is sold in art, craft, and hobby stores, and it is used by artists, hobbyists and also by children all over the world.
Brands of polymer clay include Prosculpt, Fimo, Kato Polyclay, Sculpey, and Cernit.
Check this forum, there are some posts explaining the differences between clay brands.
