Explore precious metal clay and polymer clay, in combination with polymer painting, printing, and inlay techniques. Make unique textures and use printed and painted paper and richly colored polymer collages. With a focus on individual design, you will make many samples, construct work in PMC, and use materials such as fibers, gold leaf, and found objects. You will learn rudimentary metal/jewelry working techniques (riveting, hammering, patinas) to bring it all together. Metal clay experience recommended. Download Materials List.
