San Diego Polymer Clay Guild is offering two classes with Mike
Saturday, Sept. 16, 2000 / 10a.m. - 4 p.m.
The class begins with a discussion of landscapes in general; illusion
of light, depth, and composition. We'll use skinner blends to make
shaded canes for backgrounds, learn to cut and insert elements (clouds,
stars, moon, etc).
We'll learn the jaggy cut to add realism and bring the cane to life.
Mike will discuss and demonstrate effects for creating elements of a
cane, inserted to fill the landscape.
Magic of Metallics
Sunday, Sept. 17, 2000 / 10a.m.- 4p.m.
Mike will discuss the properties of premo metallic and pearlescent
clays, introduce the concept of "foliation," ingots, chatoyancy, and
explain the special properties of premo and how they can be used to
produce a variety of dazzling, shimmering metallic effects.
Mike will demonstrate how he constructs his lockets. Mike will also
demonstrate his "glass effects" using premo, which seems to be
everyone's favorite technique these days.
If time permits, Mike will also demonstrate leaf impressions using
metallic clay, leaves, and powders.
If these classes are a success, we hope to get him back soon. Go to
