Starting with simpler characters, and moving toward more complex ones, talented brothers and internationally known clay sculpting experts Dinko and Boris Tilov show readers step-by-step how to build mythological figures from polymer clay. Each project is built by combining basic clay shapes and using simple tools that can be found around the house. Detailed step-by-step photography lead readers of any skill level through thirteen characters, each accompanied by clever variations.

The Tilov brothers provide detailed photo instructions for assembling cleverly imaginative, miniature, puppetlike gnomes, unicorns, and fairies. Styles are similar to contemporary fantasy book illustrations and cartoons. Some projects require armatures; otherwise, most are suitable for beginners.
