Basic facial sculpture process

How to use Paperclay

Color mixing and color blending

Primary and secondary colors

Beginning decorative painting techniques

Dry brush technique

Care and handling of clay tools and brushes


All classes include the same methods and materials. It is required that either class 1, 2, or 3 (or equivalent) be taken before 4, 5, or 6 … which are all more difficulty.   Students will work together one step at a time, to create their own one of a kind piece of art.

Due to the drying time required, classes will be offered in two (3+ hr. each) sessions with overnight drying time.

All materials will be supplied and you will complete a 2 ½” One of a Kind sculptured ornament to take with you at the end of the workshop. 

Class size is 2 to 6 students (inside) or 2 to 10 students (outside).  I will be happy to work within your schedule and/or your personal friends to design a perfect class to fit your group.  THESE CLASSES ARE FUN, FUN, FUN!! 

And…..yes you CAN do it!!
