Sometimes when we look at a posted class project, we think….Oh My, I could Never….I don’t have the skill to do that! ….Stop right there!
Allow me to show you a truly “no fear” method to work with metal clay. Every complex looking project is just a series of simple steps all linked together! In my 18 years of working with metal clay I have learned many tips and tricks that I will pass on to you to erase any fears and make you a successful metal clay artist!
In this class I will show you how to work with the magical metal clay. How to go from a soft formless clay-like substance to a finished work of wearable art! You will learn how to torch fire the silver without having to buy a kiln. Learn how to finish and patina your piece.
This will be a life changing experience in your artistic world, even if you are not a jewelry artist this will open doors for new design ideas. NO Fear! NO kidding!

Materials fee $65 paid directly to instructor at beginning of class includes:

16g of PMC metal clay, basic tool kit and use of any other tools and materials needed to finish your piece.

Supplies You Need to Bring to Class in addition to materials provided by instructor:

If making a pendant or earrings bring a cord or chain and ear wires.
