with Maggie Maggio
Tuesday, Aug 19, 2014, 9:00am – 4:00pm
This is a pre-retreat workshop for the International Polymer Clay Association Retreat in August 2014 in Dublin, Ohio.
When I first started playing with the ColorWash technique, I sometimes ended up with large areas of color that felt much too bare. What did I do? I doodled away all the empty spaces. Dots, lines, and patterns filled the voids and transformed a basic bead into a unique and poetic focal bead.
In this fast-paced workshop you will mix customized colors inspired by nature using Maggie’s Mixing Map and then learn the basics of the ColorWash technique as you create a collection of color-washed sheets. The fun comes when you tear and collage the sheets into gorgeous beads.
Everyone has an instinctive doodling style. While your favorite bead is curing you will have time to play with making your personal marks using pen and paper. Then embellish one special bead and learn how to protect your drawing. Demo and instructions on sanding and finishing ColorWashed beads will be provided.
