You will learn about the art of designing and mixing a coordinated color palette using translucent polymer. Learn the parameters of proportion for tinting and strategies for increasing (and decreasing) the vibrancy of your colors. You will be able to choose between four different color palettes: Vibrant Spring, Lush Summer, Sophisticated Fall or Brilliant Jewel Winter in a range of intensities.  Samples of several options to enhance the outline of your cane with pearl and/or embossing powders will be on display to aid in your choices.Have you been longing to return to the joy of childlike play, without self-consciousness and predetermined notions of skill and perfection?  With Lindly’s guidance (and samples) you will encouraged to playfully experiment with edges, scale and shape shifting to create your own unique interlocking bead designs.

Lindly will guide you, step by step, as you make a rainbow roll cane that will feature a translucent clay blend with a semi-opaque outline.. Then you will discover how a simple cane slice can be transformed by manipulating the edges, folding, stretching or texturing and then possibly combined with other shapes to create dynamic volume to make your bracelet uniquely your own. Questions =




Polyform products will be providing all the polymer you will need to complete your project.

I will be bringing a selection of rainbow blends to choose from, temporary stringing supplies and embossing powders.

Please be mindful of the other participants when taking photos.
