Lucy's Online Mould Class!

Since I came across Lucy's True Colours blog, I have been an admirer of her unique work and art creations!  Not at all that there aren't a ton of fabby blogs and artists, but Lucy just does some incredible projects that really capture my interest!  Every once in awhile, after drooling over a new project, I would mention to her about teaching a class.  I believe I was not alone and so now Lucy is offering very reasonable priced online classes.  If interested really check it out, but first stroll through her blog and you will know why I wanted classes!!   Nest there will be a class using tissue paper techniques!  So fun!!!
The Moulded Subjects
The Clay Moulded Pieces
The Finished Pieces
Products Used to Color
The first in the series is mould making and I will admit that I was afraid to start!  Why, I don't know!  Now please keep in mind that the pictures are not the best quality, because there is quite a bit of reflective materials used and this is my very first attempt at making moulds, playing with clay and coloring.  The colors IRL are darker and do look nicer.  I really had a blast and can't wait until I actually perfect a skill at this fun craft!  All but the second cameo (copper/green) were colored prior to baking.  These were just done for fun and practice, so not sure how I will use them.  I also bought some moulds, but how interesting to look at object you like and then make a mould of them!!  Thank you Lucy for such a fun and informative class!

Speaking of classes, Cindy of Whimsical Musings, is offering a free online seminar for us bloggers, "Blogging 101."  Cindy is always generous with her time and shares all of our talents with so many other lovely bloggers!  Now she is sharing some tips and ideas for blogging, so stop by Cindy's!

Brenda Brown said...

Oh wow, wow, wow, you have done a superb job of these Terry. All your pieces look as though they have been made with tender loving care and will wonderfully adorn any piece of art work.
Thank you so much for adding my blog button. Making the button itself was easy. I just used one of my photos and added the writing and re-sized it in Photoshop Elements. It was getting the html code right that took me ages. Lots of research but I got there in the end.
If you need any help making one email me.
Have a great day.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Terry
You have done a wonderful job creating your moulds.
Isn't creating all about trying something new and having fun and also sometimes taking that step into unknown territory.
I am sure we will see more of your moulds in the future.

Lynne

I was wondering what you meant by making molds and now I know! I bought some product to make them but just haven't gotten to it yet. Great inspiration -- I like the pieces you made. Hope you're doing well...I've got one more trip coming up out of town and hopefully I can settle in again. LoL
