BRONZclay is an actual clay body that contains fine bronze particles, it can be beautifully textured and formed for jewelry making. BRONZclay requires firing; during thee firing process, the clay body burns off, resulting in a unique bronze piece.
Throughout this 6-week class, students will learn a variety of texturing techniques using water etching, copper etching, and polymer clay. Students will also learn different bead contruction methods and finishing techniques.
