Book Review... Inspired Remnants, Curious Dreams: Mixed Media Projects in Epoxy Clay by Kerin Gale

Kerin Gale is a self-taught mixed media artist who loves to work with all types of resins, clays and metal. In her first-ever publication, she explores the many facets of using epoxy clay as well as creating silicone molds to add texture and make castings of your favorite objects.

The book begins with an elaborate look at how to mix and use multiple types of epoxy clays and mold-making putties. There are no complicated formulas or fancy terms, and with so many tips and tricks... you really can’t make a mistake! You'll learn to adhere, sculpt, mold, duplicate, assemble, faux finish and much more. Kerin really covers everything!

Each of the over 20 projects includes step-by-step photos and detailed instructions for all kinds of items from assemblage to jewelry to home décor items.. and more! Sprinkled throughout the book are additional gallery projects from all your favorite mixed media artists. Something for everyone.

I’ve taken a class with Kerin and the nurturing spirit she embodies really comes through in this book. Her conversational tone and lighthearted humor make you feel like she’s right there with you. And her amazingly clever projects will excite your creativity and spark your imagination. Before you can say, why didn’t I think of that?.... you’ve come up with 3 more projects using the techniques in this book. You just can’t help yourself!

Published by the North Light Books Division of FW Media, this intriguing publication is a whopping 127-page, full color paperback.... Inspired Remnants, Curious Dreams is available now online, at your favorite bookstore, or take advantage of this special offer from Kerin Gale!

Happy creating, everyone!
