I finally had a moment to post the last of my classes with Kristen Robinson. Her inspiration will stay with me a long time though.
In this class we played with mold making, something I have never done before. It really was quite simple to make them, and I can see it opening a whole new realm of possibility in terms of using those things I really treasure in a new way.
Kristen brought a paperclay heart already dry for us to work with. Since I decided to do a series of three hearts, I made a few more hearts from her molds in class.
I decided I wanted to add some metal elements, so I rooted through my junk and found lots of fun objects: wings, keys, a pen nib and eclectic scraps.
On this last heart I actually stamped right into the clay when it was wet. This was a fun technique that evolved as we played in class.
I would highly recommend any class that Kristen ever offers in your area. She was a very kind and generous teacher.
