We’re so pleased to have US polymer artist extraordinaire Christi Friesen on our team of Tutorial Kit tutors to show you the basics of sculpting with polymer clay through some fabulous projects such as this ‘Mossy Ring’.
In this box you’ll find a comprehensive 17 page tutorial booklet in which Christi will show you how she makes this Mossy Ring with polymer clay and beads.
Christi uses some basic tools to create some beautiful texture and will show you how to attach beads to polymer clay (without them coming out after baking!), how to apply mica/pigment powder, how to apply a patina plus more.
A mini tutorial on conditioning polymer clay is also included.
This project/kit is for students of all skill levels.
