Material Mimicry – Creating illusions and making faux materials 
 
Do you want to make a piece of jewellery that visually looks heavy like a rock but feels light as a feather? Or make a fake pearl shaped like a doughnut? How can we deceive the eye and make one material look like something it is not? 
 
In this course I will show you examples of how to manipulate alternative materials into imitations of other materials. I will be showing demos of how I use things like crushed stone, clay, pigments, wood, glue, paint and sand to create faux materials in my own jewellery practice. I will share some of my material secrets and we will be focusing on manipulation of materials with an emphasis on surfaces and finishes, encrusting, textures and small castings with materials like epoxy glue and plaster in silicone putty.
