Concrete Cabochons

Class Length: 3 hours

Description

Use finishing concrete to create a variety of pendants and cabochon-shaped objects to use in future jewelry projects.

Learn to mix and work with concrete to create one of a kind designs. Experiment with adding inclusions such as beads, metal washers, plant material, sea glass & seashells, stamps and more. Use procion dyes to tint the concrete in the mixing stage and more.

I'll supply the concrete, mixed dyes for tinting, most of the tools and supplies and a variety of objects for potential inclusions.
