Default Polymer Clay Books

Hi folks,

I know that there are quite a few of you who are masters in polymer clay miniatures. I'm going to try my hand at it as it always fascinated me. I was wondering if you experts can recommend a good book for me.

Thanks all of you for your response.

Keep a look out for any of Sue Heaser's books, they teach you a great deal about the clay and how to use it, all the different techniques and also how to make many different miniatures
