The Golden Touch with Joy Funnell
8 February 2020 (Saturday)
Come and join in this fabulous workshop where Joy will help you to take your work up a level by adding a touch of gold to it! You'll make some simple pieces in the morning and then move on to adding some gold accents to complement the designs. If you already have some suitable silver clay pieces (they need to be re-heatable) then you are welcome to bring them along too... maybe a Blossom Ring :-)
This class will cover the KeumBoo method in depth, utilising different ways of heating the pieces to fuse gold onto the surface. You'll also look at how Art Clay Gold Paste can be used and the pen plating method too. There'll be lots of helpful hints to make adding gold a fun and easy technique you'll want to use again and again. You'll leave with the confidence of knowing you can easily repeat the methods at home.
This workshop includes 20g Art Clay Silver, 1x fireable stone, accenting gold foil and paste, plus refreshments and lunch. Combine this with an expert teacher, fully equipped studio and wonderful fellow Art Clayers for a truly brilliant day.
As a special bonus, all attendees who also join us for our Friday 'Cherry Blossom Ring' class will receive a FREE 7g pack of Art Clay Silver as a bonus.
Skill Level: No prior metal clay experience required.
