New Polymer Clay Possibilities: Scraps, Slabs and Smears!
Join Australia’s own master polymer clay artist, Heidi Helyard, Thursday, June 30th at 7 PM ET LIVE ONLINE and learn how to create exciting and fresh graphic polymer clay jewelry using the popular slab construction.
” The beauty of polymer clay is that it presents me so much opportunity to explore endless colour combinations, patterns, and textures.” ~ Heidi Helyard.
Watch and learn as Heidi demonstrates how she applies various techniques using stamps and ink on polymer to create her patterns, Then watch close-up as Heidi reveals how she uses liquid polymer as a surface treatment along with mica powders to make a “polymer clay paint.” You will fall in love with her “paint smear” application! PLUS, learn how to apply chalk pastel/mica powder using a silkscreen design.
Watch and learn all about Heidi’s signature style of dot making, texturing, and micro cutters.
Curing, finishing, and assembly will be covered as well as a bonus cane technique!
AND Heidi will be taking live questions from participants.
