‘SGraffitto Mosaic Turtle’ with Christi Friesen

This class packs a lot of techniques!

We will learn sgraffito – a scratch-thru technique using real 24k gold leaf to create line graphics in polymer and we will create a mosaic pattern on the shell using epoxy clay.
And of course there is the sculptural techniques and embellishment tricks in creating the turtle!

It’s a lot of fun and learning packed into one workshop.
