    Clear concise instructions with a touch of humour. I have just completed my first attempt in silver clay although the it's not turned out exactly the same I am very happy I will say the snakes and the tiny leaves and balls really are teensy tiny and not easy to manipulate if you have chunky fingers :) here's hoping future attempts will be better.
