In my 2-day class I will show how to build my wonder-stamps and how to use them with polymer clay.
For years, I’ve been searching for a way to turn my own designs into stamps. Sculpting or carving them out of polymer clay was an obvious first choice, but the stamps turned out too crude and small details were impossible to recreate.
Finally, one day, I came up with an idea that produced stamps with thin, tall and strong walls. These could be created on my own time, and with no cost at all. With these, I was ready to conquer many different techniques. My own faux cloisonné – check! Back-filling – check! Sutton slice – have never been easier! Mokume-gane – any design is possible! But, making the stamps themselves was too cumbersome to explain to somebody else.
Spaces are still available and it is time to register. Follow this link to the registration form:
The pictures in this post show the pendants made in a few of many polymer clay techniques using my wonder-stamps.
