Build Your Color Mixing & Finishing Skills
in a Kaleidoscope Cane Workshop
with visiting Polymer Clay expert Carol Simmons
Saturday & Sunday, May 2-3, 2015 9 am to 5 pm
Swissvale Fire House 7400 Irvine Street, Pittsburgh 15218
Carol will show you how to choose a harmonious color scheme, create a complex Kaleidoscope cane out of polymer clay, and apply your beautiful design to a bracelet or pendant.
You will mix color blends from primary colors, and learn how to modify your blends to maximize the light/dark contrast. (Clay will be provided.)
Next, you will combine the small canes to make a wide variety of detailed, repeating patterns. Then, using Carol’s special slicer, we will make perfect, wafer-thin slices to apply to a pendant or bracelet.
Carol will share numerous tips on how to achieve the highest quality results including cane construction, veneer application, forming, sanding, buffing to a high shine, and drilling techniques.
