"Coloring Translucent Clay" 1. 5. 2015
The day will be spent testing how many ways we can find to add color to translucent clay and how different brands behave. It is all about experimentation; at the end of the day you’ll have lots of samples as reference for the future or for the workshop on the following days.
“Translucent Polymer Workshop” 2. - 3. 5. 2015
Translucent polymer clay can seem invisible, but is it really? When used wisely it can add depth, making a piece visually intriguing; it can be finished to a glass-like surface; and of course being semitransparent allows light to pass through it. We will take advantage of these properties during the workshop. Students will learn several translucent-based canes and surface techniques.
Day 1- Canes
Organic moving layers.
Translucent-heavy canes (stripes, circles and dots)
Day 2 – Surface techniques
Drawing with pencils, markers, etc. on layers.
Translucent over gold or silver leaf, several variations.
Alcohol inks after curing.
Sanding and buffing translucent to a glassy shine.
Finishing and assembling techniques.
