Dinko Tilov (Author of Creating Fantasy Polymer Clay Caracters)

While this book was a great book for ideas and resources, it is not a good book for sculptures or art dolls. The book features “rough placement” and a “rough finish” which I do not tend to like. This being said, if you like a less professional and finished look to your pieces, this book will suit your purposes. The ideas for characters are well done however. Recently I gave my grandson this book for his birthday. Here are his comments “I’d say both rate around four stars out of five, or an 8 scale of 1 – 10 ” Somewhat terse, but then what do you expect from a 15 year old boy?

I had seen the book, lent to me by a friend, and when I heard that my grandson was interested in clay figures I thought this would be an ideal book as there were lots of weird characters that would appeal to someone of his age. Don’t get me wrong, this is a book for adults mainly, not just for kids, but I thought he would be inspired by the creatures within. Dinko Tilov is an amazing young man! His imaginative art has intrigued me for years and I have several of his pieces in my collection.


His personal story is just as inspiring as his art. Now, he has written one of the best “how-to” books I have ever read.

He has captured a perfect balance of presenting the required skills without making his students simply clones of his work. Quite remarkable for a young man who is in his early 20’s. I have many polymer clay books, but when I saw this book, I knew I had to have it. The cover was cute enough, but when I saw the view from inside with the little bird, I was hooked.

This book is hard to find, and even on ebay, it was like a gazillion dollars. Can’t wait to try the projects. The characters in this book are somewhat goofy, however, the author provides excellent basics on armature building for creatures like horses and dragons. If you are looking for a lighter side to the fantasy world and would like to sculpt some fun creatures, this book is perfect. I think that kids will really love how achievable the sculptures in this book are for them.
