This week is an incredible opportunity to achieve a high degree of competency in various techniques for polymer clay with expert Lisa Pavelka. For those who work with metal clay, students will learn secrets that will stretch their metal clay investment.
Subject areas covered will include:
- Mold Making for Metal and Polymer Clay Design
- Extrusion Caning for Bezels and Frames
- Faux Finishes for Polymer Clay Accents
- Millefiori Cane Designs for Metal Clay Frames and Bezels
- Image Transfers for Metal Clay Frames and Bezels
An emphasis on mixed media design will be featured in several of the sessions. The millefiori caning session will take the intimidation factor out of making complex looking canes that don't require exhaustive amounts of time or a great deal of experience.
Students will leave with increased confidence in their creative abilities. No tip or trick will be spared!
