Philip Wiegard: Mokume Gane Oil Spill

Philip Wiegard: Mokume Gane Oil Spill

I am very excited to share with you this new project I developed for Polymer Art Summit 2021. It’s a new variation on my Bob Ross Sunset Tutorial with a strong and poignant topic: THE MOKUME GANE OIL SPILL.

For me this motif has many references, from climate justice to diversity to the petrochemical origins of polymer clay – and on top it looks simply beautiful!

I will be teaching this project live and exclusive at Polymer Art Summit 2021 at the beginning of August.
