Mica Magic Class

Saturday, January 20, 9-Noon



Wickford Art Association
36 Beach Street
Wickford, Rhode Island 02852

Register at the Wickford Art Association .

Polymer clay is an incredibly versatile medium and we'll explore texture, shape, and layering techniques to create a pendant. You'll learn how to create your own shape templates or combine commercial cutters to further customize your designs.

We'll use iridescent mica powders to take black clay from boring to FABULOUS. ;)
 
You'll learn how to apply mica without sending it all over the room, resist techniques, and how to protect it afterwards.

If time permits, you can create additional pendants or a coordinating set of earrings.

$65 Members   $100 Non-members $10 Material fee - All materials included

Sculpting

Nope, that's not an owl in the hollow tree. Good eyes  ;)

But it will be during class, or you have the option of sculpting whatever you want living in your own hollow.

I'm going to show you how to sculpt and texture polymer clay to look like old wood for a hollow tree. Techniques will be demonstrated on a relief sculpture of an owl and I'll bring reference images for the same project.

We'll cure the sculptures in class (unless you'd like to spend more time on it and bring it home), then cover antiquing and painting techniques with a comparison of acrylics, heat set oils and PanPastels.

Great class for beginners and experienced clayers alike.
I'm a week into my 30 day challenge and so far it's going well. You can follow along on my blog at http://skygrazer.com/journal/ starting here or on Instagram - ChristyShermanArt - if you want to skip straight to the pictures.  :)

Anyone else doing your own challenges this year?
