Additional Information
Description:
An adaptation of an ancient Japanese metalsmithnig technique will be used to layer polymer clay, apply a controlled pattern, and slice into veneers that will be shaped into stick bead components. Students will learn the beauty of negative space in their design by incorporating a solid-colored center bead with a metal accent, which will add a sense of whimsy and elegance to their bead set.
Students will Learn:
Students will be guided through: polymer color mixing, design imprinting, veneer creation, bead shaping, curing and finishing. In this multi-bake process, students will learn how to attach metal or other objects to their cured beads with the use of “polymer rivets”, and learn tricks to drill their bead sets for stringing.
