Bronze metal clay is the natural next choice for the large silver metal clay market; it's far less expensive, so crafters can expand their creativity creating larger-scale pieces. Yvonne Padilla is an expert at answering crafters' questions about bronze. In addition to providing step-by-step instructions for 30 projects, she explains how bronze differs from silver clay, how to work with it and how to attain the lovely verdigris patina that only bronze has. An inspirational gallery and a trouble shooting section complete the fantastic package.

About the author: Yvonne M. Padilla has been making things since she was itty bitty: she used her sewing skills (Mom taught her how) to turn her red Converse sneakers into ruby slippers, she drafted her own patterns so she could have her own clothing line and she hung dollhouse miniatures from earwires and started selling them to friends at school. Today, Yvonne is one of the first artists in the United States to work with Bronze Clay. When Yvonne is not making jewelry or teaching, she crochets, embroiders, sews, and loves to host parties. Yvonne lives in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, with her husband, Trafford, and their chihuahua, Shadow.
