Get your hands on some polymer clay and learn how to make your own colorful dragonfly notebook cover. We’ll start with a white sheet of clay and we’ll go together through the entire process – from sculpting to painting – until we end up with a magical piece. We’ll talk about colors, play with mica powder and acrylic paints, over-use the word ‘tiny’ and also eat a lot of chocolate during this whole time! And we’re not stopping at the front cover! We’ll also create the back cover and the spine to have the whole notebook covered in magic and bright colors. We’ll work with tons of details, so don’t forget to bring your patience!
