Milagro is the Spanish word for miracle and in Mexico these tiny metal charms are often used for healing purposes and for giving thanks for answered prayers. Often these charms are in the shape of the body part that was healed. In this class, students will be using my molds to cast their own large milagros out of polymer clay. A variety of techniques will be cover that include mold making, stamping, painting and embedding the clay. Surface design techniques will be used to alter the clay to simulate metal and the milagros will be embedded with tiny bits and pieces of jewelry. These beautifully adorned "miracles" can be hung on the wall and will be the physical representation of a wish or an answered prayer.
