Polymer Clay Classes

 Eugena's Classes in 2016:


October 15, 2016
FALL LEAVES NECKLACE
One-day workshop at Baltimore Bead Society
Columbia, Maryland

In this class, you will learn how to make a beautiful and original necklace with a leaf-shaped polymer clay pendant. The pendant will look like it had been skillfully carved, while in fact the process to make it is much, much simpler and easier.  
This is an interesting and fun new technique, suitable both for experienced and novice polymer clay artists. Even if you have never touched polymer clay before, this project can be your door to the new and exciting world of polymer clay with its endless possibilities.
The technique demonstrated in this class can be adopted for other designs. If time permits, we will also explore different ways of adding color to your creations: use of polymer clay in different colors, painting polymer clay with acrylic paints and alcohol inks, tinting it with mica powders, chalks, and pastels. I will also explain how to properly bake your polymer clay items and when and what protective glazes to use.
You do not have to be a member of the BBS to attend.  Follow the link for more details:  Polymer Clay Workshop with Eugena

ODDS AND ENDS FROM YOUR CRAFT ROOM,
4-hour workshop at  Clay Fest-Cabin Fever Creative Arts Fest 2016
Laurel, Maryland,
Skill Level = All levels, confident beginner to advanced

I bet your craft room holds hidden boxes with buttons of all colors and shapes, spools of sewing thread, embroidery floss, unfinished canvas, pieces of ribbons, various zippers, and many other riches collected over the years. I know mine certainly does!

So what can be done with all this stuff?

Well, bring these treasures to my class, and we will use polymer clay to upscale them into beautiful pins. I've included a few examples of what can be made with these materials, but the possibilities are truly endless!

Zippers work great to outline pins and pendants, while buttons create flower centers, cat's eyes, and even focal points. We can also use embroidery floss, dressmaker pins, ribbons, and lots of other odds and ends to decorate our polymer clay creations. Come join the fun!
