    This is a great updated reference for prop makers, teachers and students It s a good overview of different techniques and methods to go about creating props, and as an introduction to sculpture, casting and building, it s very informative It s a good reference for learning new methods of making props, or a way to start diving into new techniques It s also very well structured around safety and lists dangers, pros and cons of different materials or methods.What the book doesn t fill in would be examples of how to build specific props, or designing props for shows I don t fault the book for not including it, because it s such a broad field it would be impossible to cover everything As a source book for having on hand to look up new methods, it s a fantastic resource.
