Creating Faux Dichroic Glass with Polymer Clay

$50.00 $120.00

One of the fabulous things about polymer clay is that it can be used to wonderfully mimic so many different mediums – including dichroic glass!

Leanne will show students how to use various media to create multi-coloured dichroic glass effects on polymer clay.
You can expect to create multiple veneers/pattern sheets using two different methods and create a beautiful pendant complete with glossy finish to make your pendant sparkle!

Leanne will cover setting your clay into bezels for those who don’t want to create a pendant from scratch.
She’ll also share all her tricks and tips (including safety) for using UV resin and getting a perfect finish with this.

Please Note : Photos are for inspiration only. Students will be encouraged to create their own designs with assistance from Leanne.

This class will run with a maximum of 10 students.
