Polymer Clay - Joan Huck
This class is geared towards the beginner to intermediate working with polymer clay. It will focus on a complete understanding of clay basics, how to mix and blend color as well as simple cane techniques. We will begin with Skinner blends, bull’s eye and spiral canes and progress to combining these and others to make leaves, flowers, and kaleidoscope canes. We will focus primarily on techniques such as structuring, texturing, molding, shaping and finishing to make beads, bracelets, earrings, and pendants. We will also use paints, alcohol inks and some gold/copper leaf. We will use only KATO clay during the week because it is the beset 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. Extra supplies will be available for purchase. If you have a pasta machine with a motor, you may use it. Otherwise, we will have some hand cranked ones for your use. You will need brayer, but all other tools will be provided. However, if you have other polymer clay tools, texture sheets, shapes, etc. feel free to bring them, but I will also have them for your use during class.
