POISON is a beautifully illustrated re-telling of the Snow White story which takes all the elements of the classic fairytale that we love (the handsome prince, the jealous queen, the beautiful girl and, of course, the poisoning) and puts a modern spin on the characters, their motives and their desires.

Polymer Clay Basics
By Monica Reston
Using polymer clay doesn¿t require any fancy equipment ¿ you just bake it in a conventional oven. First cut the clay into slices or geometric designs. Use these pieces to create shapes that have patterns, such as flowers or faces. Adhere these shapes to a surface, or leave them as beads, then bake in the oven. There is a wide range of things you can make. You can make jewellery; embellish boxes and frames; cover cutlery handles with pretty flowers or bold checks; fashion charming little faces to use as drawer knobs; coat a real egg with a marble-like coating or embellish a flowerpot. With so many different patterns to shape in a rainbow of tantalising colours, you¿ll want to try every project!
