Re: [BKARTS] incorporating (polymer) clay

I've taken several classes on incorporating polymer clay into artists books
at San Francisco Center for the Book from Dayle Doroshow who lives in
Mendocino, CA and teaches workshops around the country.  You can make
wonderful polymer clay book covers and also book pages from thin sheets of
transclucent clay, which accept transfers of B&W photocopies and colored
pencil images before baking.

The page on Dayle's web site with pictures of some of her artist's books is

A book with examples of making images on polymer clay using stamping,
carving, and image transfers is "Images on Clay", copyright 2000 Design
Originals by Suzanne McNeill, 2425 Cullen Street, Fort Worth, Texas, 76107.
This book shows work by Nan Roche, Gwen Gibson, Dayle Doroshow & Barbara
McGuire.  You can order this book at Suzanne McNeill's web site:
