Ready, Set, Fold! – The Art of Polymer Clay Folding, Weaving & Rolling!
Learn new techniques for folding, weaving and rolling polymer clay in sophisticated designs!
Looking back at the history of weaving and folding, weaving was used by our prehistoric ancestors as an aid in their quest for basic needs of food, shelter & clothing.
Folding, especially paper folding (japanese Origami), is an art of folding objects out of paper without cutting/pasting.
These ancient techniques soon became very popular and moved to the modern era in the shape of recycled and found materials.
So, why not use use traditional folds to create entirely new and exciting designs?
Our clay is perfect for “Origami”! It will stick to itself!
Folding, weaving and rolling polymer clay gives our designs a very special 3 dimensional effect achieved by the special characters of the material, the special colors – solid or marbled, metallic or glittery, skinner blended or extruded.
Although not as stretching as ribbon or flexible as paper – polymer clay with it’s wonderful color palette, patterns and textures take these techniques into a whole different level.
The adhesiveness of the clay makes it very easy to fold and to compress the folds – bead or jewel – these techniques are turning any piece to an intriguing, attractive, interesting and almost impossible to believe it is clay.
