New Workshops

Tina and I will be putting together a schedule for classes that are being offered at her Glitter Girl Studios in August. I will be doing a two part altered book workshop and the "Heart in a Box" class (see below). The soldering classes are ongoing; bottles, charms and such. Follow the link on the right to be directed to My Favorite Things for details. I also do "Workshops on Demand". Email me for details.

Altered Book

This is the newest model. The heart is made of paper mache. I first made the shape in clay then a latex mold over that so I can recreate the shape. The floral design was stamped onto sculpey, baked, painted and tinted. The edges are gold leaf. See earlier post for another "specimen".
