Polymer Clay Classes

 Eugena's Classes in 2019:


April 12, 2019
OPENWORK PENDANTS
4-hour workshop at the Central Oklahoma Polymer Clay Guild 2019 Annual Twister Retreat
Skill Level = All levels, confident beginner to advanced

Do not miss this unique opportunity to have a hands-on demonstration of this innovative and highly unusual technique. It is a result of many hours of my trial and error, and I am ready to share all my tips and tricks in this class.

The openwork designs created with this technique look unbelievably airy and yet they are strong enough to be used in jewelry.

In this class, you will be making a pendant using just one 2-oz pack of Premo polymer clay in any color.

I will provide the second material needed for this technique. I will also share the recipe for making this material at home using simple readily-available ingredients and will show you how to mix these ingredients for the best results.

This hands-on class is based on my tutorial Polymer Clay Pendants, Under a Microscope
and is recommended for people who prefer learning new techniques in a group environment, under a direct guidance by an instructor.

The only tools needed for this class are the following:
- a working surface (a ceramic tile, for example);
- a roller or a pasta machine (optional);
- a small knife or spatula;
- a round cutter, about 1" to 1.5" in diameter;
- a tool for shaping concave polymer clay pendants*.

* There is a detailed description of such tools in the following post in my blog:

SEA CREATURES
4-hour workshop at the Central Oklahoma Polymer Clay Guild 2019 Annual Twister Retreat
Skill Level = All levels, confident beginner to advanced

In this class you will learn how to make eye-catching polymer clay pendants with organic designs inspired by corals, shells, sea urchins, starfish, and other aquatic creatures.

I will guide you through many different shapes and textures that can be combined in endless ways to create beautiful pendants.

I will also share with you my original approach to using acrylic paints and alcohol inks for obtaining deeply colored polymer clay surfaces with deep shades and highlights.

This hands-on class is based on my tutorial Polymer Clay Cabochons, Sea Creatures
and is recommended for people who prefer learning new techniques in a group environment, under a direct guidance by an instructor.

Tools and materials needed for this class include the following:
- at least one 2-oz pack of Premo polymer clay in white color;
- some black acrylic paint;
- alcohol inks in at least three colors that look nicely together;
- small brushes for applying the paint and the inks (cheap ones from a Dollar Store will work);
- some paper towels;
- a working surface (a ceramic tile, for example);
- a roller or a pasta machine (optional);
- a small knife or spatula;
- any tools you may have for sculpting polymer clay (such as knitting needles of various diameter, tooth picks, disposable drinking and mixing straws, etc.);
- a tool for shaping concave polymer clay pendants*.
