About the course
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. You’ll learn how to make all kinds of textures, how to combine colors to create eye-catching contrasts, why small details matter and how to make a complex design out of simple things. 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!
About The Instructor
I am a Romanian art lover obsessed with details and, lately, with bright colors. Most of all, I like to create fairy tale, fantasy and nature-inspired journals and jewelry. Art - in its different forms and mediums - has been part of my life and a passion of mine for as long as I can remember, but I only stumbled across polymer clay in late 2016. It was love at first creation, although I only started to truly dedicate myself to it starting from 2019, so I’m still pretty new at it. I love to experiment and learn by myself, by trial and error. I take most of my inspiration from nature and mix it with the universe inside my mind and soul, which is why every piece I create is kind of a glimpse of who I am. And since nature is such an important part of my creative process, I like to use real elements from nature – like crystals, gemstones, seashells, leaves – into my work. Recently, I’ve became very fond of bold, bright colors and playing with contrasts to bring my creations to life. For me, the coloring part is just as important as the sculpting – I like use acrylic paints, wax paste and Mica powder. My strongest belief is that there’s magic in the details, so every little thing can make a difference.
