I had the honour of being one of the instructors in this year Orlando Fandango 2015 – Polymer Clay Retreat hosted in Lake Yale Baptist Conference center in Leesburg, Florida.
Although I’m still in my jet-lag phase, I wanted to share some of the photos of this wonderful event.
My INKredible class was chosen by last year 2014 Fandango participants as one of the 3 classes to be taught in 2015. When I was notified about my selection I quickly sat down and started thinking of new ways to use alcohol inks with polymer clay in all it’s 3 forms – cured, un-cured and liquid.
Many of the students already purchased my INKredible online class, so I wanted to bring a new angle to this amazing material, challenging myself and my students, experimenting with new surface techniques.
Like you, there are many materials we know now, that I didn’t know a while ago, back when I published my ink class, at 2012.
Now, after testing new materials, I could bring my “old” knowledge into a new field and it was an inspirational experience, pure joy!
You probably saw my earrings post published several weeks ago, all my endless experiments were translated into small earring sample (to save on the suitcase weight!) and each showed a new surface design using known materials in different, new ways.
I am happy to say that the feedback from the students was heart warming.
Each had her own interpretation of the technique – colours, patterns, textures, design – a colourful celebration.
I want first to thank the Orlando polymer clay guild for inviting me to this well organized, peaceful colorful event! It was a pleasure!
Thank you dear students for choosing me and my class and giving me this wonderful opportunity to visit Florida (this time not on roller coasters!) and touring your large beautiful country! I had my other half joining me to a great vacation at the keys and NYC!
Thank you Polyform for your generous donation of clay, textures, liquid clay, gloss, findings and so much more! You spoiled us well!
Thank you Eugena Topina and Lindly Haunani, my colleague instructors for the lovely company and smiles :)
I hope to meet you all again!
