Inspired by the concepts of alchemy and the Medieval age quest to turn lead into gold, students in this class will be turning polymer clay into artful elements using gold leaf, paint and powders. Using this modern material, students will be guided through a number of techniques to transmute polymer clay into ancient looking pieces. Students will learn how to do (nearly) fool-proof transfers, stamping on clay, collage on clay, painting, leafing and embedding the clay to create super cool art pieces that are ready to hang on the wall.
We will also explore mixed media techniques like napkin collage for the edges of the substrate. Students will leave with one original piece of art (heart or hand) ready to hang on the wall.
