Coloring on Clay
If as a child you loved coloring in a coloring book like I did, then this is the class for you!
In this process driven class, we will create gorgeous hand-stamped and painted tiles that can be used in a variety of other mosaics or projects. We will use polymer clay as our canvas and rubber stamps to create the designs that will be “colored” in. We will also use collage techniques, embedding and gold leaf to create some beautifully embellished tiles. I will go over some easy painting techniques so those who are concerned about their painting skills will feel relaxed and will be successful. Students will leave class with beautiful, totally handmade tiles and the skills that have a wide range of applications. Student supply List:
SUPPLY LIST: (no material fee)
3-4 small packages (2 ounce) of white or light colored Premo Polymer Clay. Make sure the clay is somewhat soft to the touch before buying it. Please condition clay prior to class by kneading into a ball and then store in a baggie. For this particular technique it is best not to have super sticky/mushy clay that the stamps stick to. (So buy Premo.) You may like to get two packages of white and then another light color like tan or translucent clay or whatever combo you like!
Rolling pin or even a larger diameter (1.5 inch) PVC pipe works about 10-12 inches long.
An assortment of paint brushes including fine detail brushes
Acrylic paint-assorted colors
Black Staz-On inkpad
A pencil with an eraser
A small bottle of Weldbond
A few doo-dads to embed into clay like beads, rhinestones, buttons, metal findings, bead caps, jewelry parts, crown, halo wings. (See pics for examples)
