This is a beautifully presented detailed guide to producing eight different fairies with step by step instructions and photographs to cover each stage.

"I wanted to introduce and present each fairy as I would teach it in a class. The idea is that a whole fairy can be made in one sitting, without the need for stages to dry out overnight. I wanted it to be a pretty book as well as an instructional one and I hope it inspires many to make wonderful fairies of their own."
