"In writing my first book, my intention has been, to introduce each fairy to you in the same way I would teach it in a class. Keeping the materials as simple as possible by using commercially bought Flowerpaste and Mexican Paste, and by using paste and powder colours as the original colour, should help those of you who may be a bit nervous about mixing.
The book consists of 8 different fairies, each with a set of step by step pictures and instructions to help you create your own masterpiece!.
I have set it out in such a way that the fairies can be adapted to your own design using different heads or dressing in different petals to the ones shown. For those of you who wish to, the instructions can also be utilised with other modelling pastes (e.g. Cold Porcelaine, or Polymer Clay)." _Frances McNaughton
