We Are Indie Toys: Make Your Own Resin Characters (英語) ペーパーバック – イラスト付き, 2014/2/25
Louis Bou is an expert in the fields of art, graphic design, photography, and fashion, and is the author of more than forty books on these subjects. He has photographed models, artists, and actors, filmed and directed a music video for the Spanish band Alive, and is currently the photographer and art director for a feature film that will become a web series. In 2012, Louis opened his design studio, Mista Studio in Madrid, Spain.
But it's mostly just a glossary of artists who currently are in the resin making field.
Mainly showing the creations the artists have made and although beautiful and amazing to see it is no where near complete enough to help a beginner get their feet wet in the creation of making resin characters.
There are about 25-30 artists included and the book gives a bio on each artist.
Then each artist is basically given 2-3 paragraphs on "helpful" tips of creating resin figures.
Most just gloss over the resin making process (But never an a-z guide) and just offer random tips that aren't all that helpful.
Like one artist says make sure enough air holes in the mold but where am I supposed to go from there?
If you want a coffee table book or one that shows some amazing artwork this is the book for you.
But if you are wanting to actually get into the creation of resin characters it is lacking a lot.
