We will work with "skinner blends"--a simple technique with endless applications. We will go over two color and multi color blends. The polymer clay will then be used to to cover glass votives and create one of a kind beads. You can use the beads for bracelets, earrings, necklaces. Basic tools will be provided; most of the work is completed with your hands.

Lee Anne Jones is a self-taught polymer clay artist. She uses polymer clay because of the versatility of the material, the colors, and how the clay can be blended with different mediums to create patterns and textures. Lee Anne uses blades, brayers, a pasta machine, and an extruder to turn solid colors of clay into amazing patterns. She use various stamps, cutters, and odd household items to imprint and shape her creations. Lee Anne also mixes translucent liquid clay into opaque colors by adding alcohol ink and pastels. Lee Anne started by making earrings, necklaces and bracelets, but has moved on to covering odd sizes of glass vases and jars with her designs. Lee Anne's website is www.beadsbymeforyou.com
