Overview

Do you find natural beauty in imperfect, worn-out, broken, and aging items? If so, you're in the right place! Christi Friesen will guide you through fascinating techniques for creating the look of antique, repaired, and lovingly used items using polymer clay. You'll even use vintage items, experiment with shattered and broken forms, and channel nature's own oxidation process with patinas. With Christi's help, you'll embrace the wabi-sabi mentality of finding true beauty in life's imperfection and transience.
