Making Miniature Food in Polymer Clay
(January 30 – February 13)
January 30 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Saturday, repeating until February 13, 2021
This workshop is exactly what it sounds like! Using polymer clay, and a few other materials, students will create realistic, miniature food items for use as charms or in dollhouse scenes. Students are required to provide their own supplies and materials. Instructor: Dina Gjertsen
Class #1: An introduction to polymer clay techniques. We will make loaves of realistic bread, toast and sandwiches.
Class#2: Caning with polymer clay. We will make a miniature realistic sushi cane and create tiny sushi plates and scenes. Toothpicks to cut in half for chopsticks are a nice addition.
Class #3: Brownie ice cream sundaes, cakes and pies. Bottle caps for pie plates are needed.
- A large sampler pack of Sculpey (optional: an extra block of both white and translucent)
- A basic sculpting tools kit with metal tools – especially needle tools and flat
- Some old paintbrushes, a used toothbrush, toothpicks, large needles, tinfoil scraps and old plastic gift cards (for cutters) are also useful.
- A container of translucent liquid Sculpey is essential for many of the projects.
- Chalk pastels, specifically brown & yellow ochre
