Martha Aleo will teach a fund raiser class in her Ancient Patina Technique! The class will be open to all for a fee of $45 plus materials. Martha will graciously donate all class fees to the Guild to further fund the Guest Artist program. Here is what Martha has to say: Like the look of old fabric, antique silk and velvet, Raku pottery, old pottery shards and verdigris? Learn how to reproduce the look of these weathered surfaces on polymer clay, by combining acrylic paint, embossing powder, liquid polymer clay, patterns from stencils and silk screens, and mica powders. For the class we will be working on two projects. You can try one or both of them as time permits. The small mirror is framed with a free form assemblage of polymer tiles made with image transfers. You can make your own or choose from the many I provide. You will paint, patina, and rough up the frame and make look like it was dug out of an ancient burial site. You can also make vessels. (Simple shapes are best; lidded cylinder forms work very well) that you can paint, screen print onto, emboss, texture and embellish. You can tie on twigs, wire and stones. The only limit is your imagination. This is a class where you are encouraged to play and let your imagination run wild. To register for this class, press here. Class fee is $45.00 and materials fee (payable to teacher on day of class) is $10.00. Download Ancient Patina Class Description&Materials List
