The All Inclusive Workshop: (One day with each Instructor)
- Lindly Haunani "Rainbow Haunani Gane"
Some say that Mokume Gane rhymes with “play with clay all day” and that is exactly what you will be doing during this fun fast paced exploration of this excitingly versatile technique. Rainbow Haunani Gane – Glistening, gossamer, intriguing layers of polymer in a full rainbow spectrum characterize my version of this technique. You will learn the keys to color selection, how to tint translucent clay, and fashion your block to include a full rainbow of colors. Discover what works best for beads, sculptural surfaces and flat pieces to create the illusion of real depth by constructing your design in layers. Explore ways to manipulate the surface finish to accentuate your beautiful designs.
Eugena’s Faux Cloisonné is an exciting and clever multi-media technique. It combines polymer clay, mica powders, wire, and resin to achieve an elegant and rich look of classic cloisonné without any complicated equipment required for metal-working and enameling.
- Iris Mishly INKredible
The INKredible workshop is all about new ideas to use Alcohol Inks on cured, uncured and liquid polymer clay. This workshop is dedicated to a unique relationship between polymer clay and alcohol inks. There are new designs included in this class that are not included in the online tutorial. Offered projects - "Garden Walkway" necklace & The "Luminous Metallics" necklace - Bold neckpieces made with alcohol inks and liquid polymer clay used in an un-traditional way: deep metallic colors, 3D effects and shimmering beads.
