Polymer Clay - Joan Huck
This class is geared towards the beginner to intermediate working with polymer clay. It will focus how to mix and blend color as well as simple cane techniques such as: Skinner blends, bulls’ eye and spiral canes. We will then learn how to combine different types of canes to make leaves, flowers and kaleidoscope canes. We will use acrylic paints, mica powders, foils, and pan pastels as we structure, texture, mold, shape and finish items such as beads, bracelets, earrings, pendants and miniature bowls. We will use only KATO clay during the week because it is the best for making canes. All clay will be provided as well as a clay blade, a mini acrylic rod and a few other items. I will also provide many tools and other supplies for your use during the class. If you have a pasta machine with a motor, you may bring it. Otherwise, we have manual hand-cranked machines. If you want to bring any of your own clay, please bring only KATO. If you have other polymer clay tools texture sheets, shapes, etc. feel free to bring them, but make sure you have everything labeled with your own identification. Extra supplies will be available for purchase.
