Sheri’s Art Classes

Polymer Clay Art Classes

at the Paradise Art Center - 5564 Almond Street

Tuesday mornings 9:30 - 12:30 Beginning September 13, 2022
Beginner and experienced clayers are welcome. The basics of polymer claying will be covered, such as best brands of clay for your projects, conditioning and curing temps. Printouts provided. Learn how to create blends, canes for slicing, faux-semi-precious stones and more. Each week we will focus on a new technique or refining a current project. 
Some clay will be available for purchase at cost ($1.50 for a 1 oz bar). Recommended is Premo Sculpey brand (NOT Sculpey III) if you purchase your own. Any question, please contact Sheri (760)504-5056 or sheri@openwindogallery.com 
Class Fee $8 + lab fee

 

Our first project begins with covering a plain glass jar. The two finished samples below use a combination of several different techniques, which you will learn over a few weekly sessions.

Not all clays are created equal

I recommend Premo Sculpey for now. We will discuss other clays in class.

Do NOT waste your money on Craftsmart (Michael's brand) or Sculpey III. They become too soft and do not hold their definition. Once they are cured, pieces break easily.
