Silkscreens allow you to quickly create an intricate pattern on a canvas of Sculpey polymer clay. Baked on a metal mold to create a round image, these pieces will be ready for you to create a show stopping beaded necklace
Syndee will have on hand all the Sculpey supplies needed to create the pendants, including the clay, alcohol markers and even silkscreens and stamps!
She will show us a couple of ways to create bezels for the pieces as well as the “Montarsi Easy Bail”. Then it’s up to you to create the wonderful beaded canvas to display your work!
This week has been all about finishing up projects I’ve started this winter and never completed.
I have been teaching so much that I’ve not had time for much creative time, so as things began to slow down and our northern visitors began to head home, I brought out my list of want to do’s and my unfinished projects.
I finished two versions of this woman today. I made a small version a couple of years ago and it’s been well received. It hangs in my Studio in my private collection. I wanted make a couple of larger ones to offer for sale. Plus I wanted to try black and white.
Seems I’m drawn to black and white for sure, I just bought a new car and it’s white with black interior, go figure.
And then here’s yet another one, I finally framed this black and white woman.
Earlier this week I finished and framed this colorful woman that I started last year. About time don’t you think?
I even saved this flamingo that I burned several months ago. He’s framed and now I want to make another one with giant flowers. Yay, go big.
I still have a few more project to finish, but I’m feeling pretty good today.
I spent most of last week turning Skinner blend plugs into canes for this cane mapped table.
I spent all week this week applying those canes and others from my cane stash to this table.
I extruded black edging and applied it to both the top and the bottom.
I bake in a full size kitchen oven but I still have to bake in sections and then glue them together right on the table surface.
Now that the northern visitors are leaving to spend the summer in their northern homes, I’ll begin filming workshops again for my online school.
First I’ll be adding a workshop that will help you build you cane inventory so when you’re ready to sit down and do a project you’ll have canes to choose from. In the table project here I made several large canes but I filled in with leaves, smaill flowers, extrusions and just plain ol’ dots from canes in my inventory. This workshop will give you guideline to create your own designs and lots of actually canes to make.
Then I’d like to add the furniture/large wall piece workshop. Tricks and tips to create large pieces will have you filling your home with your masterpieces will be key in this course.
So stay tuned.
