Elegant Meadow Pods, 2 -day Class
Nature has a wonderful way of inspiring us. If we look closely to the pods that are left behind by a flower or plant we can see the beautiful symmetry of nature. Pods represent a renewal as it releases its seeds to start the life cycle a new. In this workshop we will capture the elegance of pods and fashion them into jewelry. We will explore “constructing” pods that look realistic with texture. The detail in this method can not be captured with merely painting slip on the surface as this would only capture the basic form, and capsulate the detail on the inside where no one can see it.
Student Materials Needed: , 1 – 2 pkgs 25 g PMC3, 3 M polishing papers, Polishing Cloth, 2-Part Molding Compound, polymer clay
