Mica Magic Class – January 20th

I’ll be teaching a Mica Magic class at the Wickford Art Association in Wickford, RI. Saturday, January 20. 9 AM – Noon.

Sign up now.

If you’ve seen my iridescent dragons or jewelry, mica is what I use to make them that way. It’s a gorgous effect and we’ll cover a variety of techniques using it in this class on polymer clay.

We’ll explore texture, shape, and layering techniques to create a pendant. You’ll learn how to create your own shape templates or combine commercial cutters to further customize your designs.

We’ll use iridescent mica powders to take black clay from boring to FABULOUS, darling. 😉  You’ll learn how to apply mica without sending it all over the room, resist techniques, and how to protect it afterwards.

As long as you have time, you can make more than one pendant or try a coordinating set of earrings.

This is a great introduction to polymer clay, jewelry and mica powders. The same techniques can be used to incorporate polymer clay into mixed media and collage work as well, and mica powders can be combined with many other mediums for an iridescent shimmer.

I supply all the materials ($10 materials fee) but let me know if you’d rather get your own supplies so you can use them later. I can send you a supply list.

It will be a fun class and I hope to see you there. 🙂
