Polymer Clay Mokume Gane Pens • February 6

, ,

Wednesday, February 6, 6:30-9 pm

Laura Burlis

Learn the magical technique of mokume gane, based on Japanese metalworking, and learn how to cover 3 or 4 ink pens to keep for yourself or give as gifts! From versatile polymer clay, construct a striped slab of different colored layers and then distort the layers by piercing and stabbing. Thin layers are then sliced off to embellish the pens. This technique looks even better when you include metallic or glitter colors, and is surprisingly easy to accomplish. Participants will receive baking instructions to cure their projects at home. Materials fee $10, payable to instructor.
