MOKUME GANE LANDSCAPES

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!.

OBJECTIVE

In addition to the specific use of the mokume gane technique, I will teach basics about how to produce a large format polymer clay painting.
