“Sparkling Mokume Gane”
Some say that Mokume Gane rhymes with “play with clay all day,” and that is exactly what you will be doing for two days in this fun, fast paced survey of this excitingly versatile technique. You will learn valuable mokume gane tips and tricks while making four different glistening mokume blocks including:
Rainbow Haunani Gane
Analogous Haunani Gane
Crushed Pearl Mokume
Layered Holographic Glitter Imprint Mokume
One of the most important aspects of making successful mokume gane is your color selection. Lindly will guide you to create a coordinated color palette reflective of your color preferences. This palette will be used in the construction of all four of your mokume blocks, so swatches from one or all of them may be collaged together.
Plan on attending with Your two magical hands, suspension of doubt and an awareness of the true magic inherent in polymer clay- and leave with several completed projects, an increased confidence with working with color, hands-on understanding of valuable bench tricks and an enhanced understanding of your artistic self.
Note: This workshop is designed for all skill levels. The emphasis is to experience an overview of several different variations of mokume gane.
