Alchemy according to Webster’s dictionary: “A power or process that changes or transforms something in a mysterious or impressive way; An inexplicable or mysterious transmuting”.
In this 1 day workshop you will experiment like an Alchemist with powders, pigments and polymer as you explore the possibilities of my Faux Enamel technique. You will construct a beautiful pendant-style necklace comprised of colorful, organically shaped and layered polymer discs that closely resemble enamel- but without all the fuss!
Materials Fee $30 paid at beginning of class includes:
Hand out, wire for necklace construction and neck-wire, glass beads and use of powders, pigments, other coloring agents, hammer, bench block, Dremel, Metal files, steel wool, Butane torch and anything else not required for students to bring.
Supplies Needed to bring for Class:
POLYMER CLAY: 2-3 (2 oz. each) packs Black Premo polymer clay (Note, black is recommended for maximum contrast but Gold or other colors can be used as well if preferred).
