Freeform Peyote Beading: Design and Creation of Original Art Jewelry
Published September 2010
Open Studio: Concrete Cabochons Follow-up & Resin
Class Length: 3 hours
We'll be finishing up the concrete work from the previous week - sanding, adding additional color with acrylics and rub n buff, and artist pens, then finishing them with wax varnish or an epoxy resin topcoat.
If you attended the earlier session, resin can be used to 'butter' the concrete to deepen and enrich the colors, add a sense of depth and impart a high gloss finish.
Skills and Skill Levels required for class
No experience required.
Also bring any painted papers, stamps, drawings and small designs you'd like to use as inclusions. I have a limited selection of hand-carved rubber stamps that can be used to create miniature collages, but feel free to bring your own stamping materials as well if you have them. Because epoxy gets quite hot while it sets, fresh plant material tends to turn rather brown and ugly, so I don't recommend plant material at this stage.
I will have several grits of sandpaper, acrylic paints, rub & buff, the epoxy resins and more concrete if you want to work with that as well.
