Poly Clay – Construction Time
This session: Start Making!
We will explore the fundamentals of polymer clay along with 3 exciting techniques that will allow us to compose beautiful buttons, toggles, beads, focal pieces and fasteners for felted wearables. Participants will be able to make a variety of items from the included clay depending on their choices.
For example the included clay made these combinations 8 buttons of varying sizes, a closing ring, buckle tie and spear.
But! These are the types of fasteners you can chose to make:
You may decide to make bigger pieces but less of them, or smaller ones and more of them – all depending on your requirements.
