Making Ornaments from Dimensional Paper Clay Art with Rogene Manas

“I wanted to start off by showing you how to put a backing on an ornament or, you know, any free form piece that you do. And, so these are the backings. I’m just going to show you. I have a, just a simple heart here and I cut out, I put it on a piece of paper and I traced around it and they cut the paper out and I’m just gonna glue it on the back with some white glue and just paint that on, paint that on the back. There’s really not much to it other than one little part. And that is the, when you put it on, you want to make sure that you don’t rub down the top of it because that’s where I’m going to put a string. I’m going to just set that on there.”

Enjoying the History of Beginning Basket Weaving with Cheryl Dixon

“It’s a really hard basket to make too. And I figured out how to teach it a little bit easier than the way I learned it because you lay them out this way and then you weave in crossways and then you weave in crossways and shaker cheese basket. I do. I would think of it. I knew I would think of it. So it’s an all, it’s a very traditional shaker. It’s called a shaker cheese basket because what they would do is they will line this basket.”

Sculpting the Feet for a Baby Angel Fairy with Apryl Jensen

“What I’m going to do is kind of cut in or the toes will be kind of just like that. Then I’m kind of pushing in on this side a little bit more so we can kind of give it its endemic shape there and then move it towards the heel. Have to pick it up. I just kind of bring that all back to the heel there. See, from the side, that’s looking pretty cute. A little bit on the tiny side now. So I’ll just push that up a little bit more. I kind of stretch it out a little bit again, too.”

How to Carve Freeform Shapes From Glass and Stone with Jack Hoque

“So I’m going to grab my sandpaper and kind of shape, shape this and shaping it on, on a flat surface helps a lot. Grit of the sandpaper. The grit of the sandpaper is three 20 grit wet, but I would recommend getting a nice wood sandpaper. That’s a little bit faster than this. This is just kind of all I grabbed when I left the door from home. So right now I’m just kind of, I’ve got it at an angle. I’m kind of creating a point on it again, kind of like the top part, but then I’m going to roll it like this to kind of create that ball right now. I’m just sculpting it into the small ball shape that I want.”

Painting Tips for Dimensional Paper Clay Art with Rogene Manas

“I have an example here. I’m going to start with, and I’m going to use just the black, I’m just going to start with black. I’m going to do this on a flower here. I’m not using thick paint. This is very important. I’m using thin paint and the grayer, meaning, the thinner the paint, the grayer, the lighter your work is going to appear. So if maybe if you’re doing flowers, you don’t want it to be heavy black. Maybe you want it to be a softer color. So we’ll just do a half of it at a time.”

Testing Colors While Painting Watercolor Portraits with Colleen Reynolds

“So another thing I like to do before, if I’m, hesitant of what color combinations to do. I like to have a piece of just clear paper, the paper that I’m actually going to paint on though, not some bad paper and just test your colors before you start and see what they, see what they look like. So I have a little bit of that. Ozzy red, gold I talked about is kind of a new color I don’t know much about. So maybe on a piece of scrap paper, that’s professional grade, the same paper I’m going to use for my painting. I’ll take my combination of colors and I’ll do a little triangle swatch. So this is my pression blue, so it’s quite dark.”
