My metal clay summer read has been Gordon K. Uyehara's Metal Clay Fusion. (And yes to you can buy a copy from BeadFX.) It has been a joy to read. The book is beautifully laid out and contains diverse projects. Let me give you a synopsis.
The other thing I love about Mr. Uyehara's book is that many of the projects combine and a variety of clays(base metal and silver) with fabulous outcomes. I often avoid project books as I love to build and create pieces that are uniquely my own but I have to say that Metal Clay Fusion is a fabulous book to spark the imagination and get the creative juices flowing. Hopefully, I can carve out some time this fall to create something inspired by this book. If you are looking for a great metal clay that goes beyond the basics this book is a great addition to your library.
