Polymania UK 2019

3 day polymer clay workshop at the 4 star Mercure Holland House Hotel and Spa, Redcliffe Hill, Bristol, BS1 6SQ, UK  on 8th-10th  March 2019 (and possibly again on 12th-14th March 2019 – see below).

 

Diamond earrings with Sylvie Peraud

These earrings are interesting by their geometrical shape with very sharp edges and by the fact that they are so light because they are hollow.

The unusual construction process is done in a unique step with a single baking in the oven.

Once they are baked, students will roughly sand the diamonds in order to make those edges as sharp as possible.

Decorations and colour will be added with a brand new product from Van Aken enabling to highlight the shape and add some visual interest. Colour and decorations will be set with the heat-gun.

The final point will be to insert and set the hand made stainless steel earring findings in the hollow shape.

We can’t wait to see the brand new product!!!!

Reversible Earrings with Olga Nicolas

I like to create reversible jewellery that can be adapted to the outfits I wear. What is quite simple to achieve for a necklace is more difficult for earrings. So I looked for a simple way to create these reversible earrings.

This one-day project is very complete. You will discover and experiment 2 coloured and playful surface treatments where inks, pastels and acrylic paints are used. You will also mix the engraving on raw clay as well as on baked clay.

You will see how to make a very easy and fast glossy finish whose result is close to the effect of the resin.

You will create a simple but innovative polymer clay hoop earring that makes it easy to change the pendant either to turn it over or to place another form of pendant.

You will also learn how to work and shape the metal wire and embed it securely into the polymer clay hoop

“You Crack Me Up” with Debbie Crothers

Crackle, crackle and more crackle!
Double crackle is totally “in” and we’re going to fully explore the wonders of double crackle in this exciting and fun-filled workshop.  We’ll create a range of different crackle veneers using alcohol inks and mixed media and will then team these with a very cool “crocodile crackle”.  I’ll share lots of additional tips and tricks on the day. Our workshop will be project specific but those who want to follow their own creative journey are encouraged to do so.
