Ronna Weltman, award-winning artist and author, says "Tory Hughes’ DVD series will not simply get you started with polymer clay, it will give you all the tricks and techniques you need to be an accomplished polymer clay artist. The series is as relevant today as it was when they were made over a decade ago.
“Hughes goes beyond tricks and techniques, however, to empower the viewer to “think in polymer.” Her engaging personality and delightful sense of humor make this series the most effective mini-art school education one could ever hope to get (at a fraction of the price and right in your own home!)”
