Stroppel "Pen & Ink on Polymer Clay" at Creative Journey Studios

Sun. 22 Apr, 2012 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
April 22 (10 AM - 4 PM) Alice Stroppel ""Pen & Ink on Polymer "  $80 ~ Take both of Alice's Classes for $165 ($10 discount) We hear "pen and ink" and immediately we panic and proclaim our inability to draw. Alice will calm your fears and prove to you that you don't have to be able to draw a masterpiece to create something fun and colorful, and ready to wear in a day. With a few simple steps she will have you producing your own fun characters or just brightly colored graphics in no time. If you are already familiar with pen or brush, this is a perfect way to display your masterpieces as wearable art. Alice will guide you through all the steps and send you home with at least one finished item and the enthusiasm to make many more. This is a beginner class, although knowing the basics of polymer clay would be a plus, but not a requirement. She'll show you how to cover bracelet blanks, draw the designs, add color and finish with a protective coating.  You'll combine some simple pre-made canes with unusual stamp shapes to create fun face pendants. Alice encourages you to email questions and photos of your work after the class.
