Working with Polymer Clays

with Steve Ford
Virtual Two-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
 
April 8 & 15 | Time: 12:30- 3:00p.m. ET
 
In this class, students will learn the many qualities that make polymer clays an ideal material for jewelry, and personal expression.  We’ll learn about the different brands of polymer and how they are different and useful. Techniques about mixing colors by hand and machine, building canes, reducing complex cane shapes, curing, and finishing treatments will be covered, with an emphasis on adapting techniques from other media.  In particular, the techniques of vertical cutting and reduction with a roller-hand process that minimizes waste.
