I watched Lisa Pavelka’s new DVD last night. I’ll be honest and tell you that I didn’t have very high expectations based on the price. A $12.99 list price for a polymer clay DVD is pretty much unheard of, and I was expecting to get a crummy interface, a low-budget recording, or both. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the menu was attractive (although I wasn’t able to click on the individual projects) and the filming of the instructions was clear. So why the low price? I suspect it is because the video, in many ways, is a glorified infomercial. Each of the projects uses one or more items in the new Lisa Pavelka signature line of products.
That being said, I still think there is some value to this DVD, particularly if you have an interest in image transfers and the use of foils. Lisa Pavelka’s water-slide transfers, foils, polybinder, texture plates, and molds are important players in each of the projects, but are not required purchases if you have your own favorite textures, transfers & foils that you can substitute. The projects are suitable for beginners and beyond.
So, who’d like a free copy? I’m letting the one I watched go to a lucky blog reader. If you’d like to be in the running, leave a comment and introduce yourself (in fact, even if you aren’t interested in the giveaway, leave a comment and introduce yourself – it is always nice to know who’s here reading!). Tomorrow I will have one of my evil henchmen choose a winning comment at random.
