We're going to have great fun using Polymer Clay to make a Brontosaurus Dinosaur sculpture. And you don't need to already be a sculptor. No previous experience is required. I'll lead you through each step -- step-by-step so that you can be a sculptor. Since this is a one-time class, we won't be able to paint the dinosaur, so I suggest you buy tinted polymer clay. You can use greens or grays or browns. Or you can use another color like blue or red if you want to go crazy! Also, the dinosaur...
Students will learn to sculpt and bake a dinosaur from polymer clay.
I am an artist, an author, a poet, and a certified teacher. I love being artistic, and I love helping students discover the artistic self they have within themselves and let it break free. I'm working on a personal sculpting project right now using polymer clay, and I love using this clay for sculpting. I will have two pieces from my sculpting project in a juried gallery exhibition from January 14 to February 14, 2021.
We will only have time to make the sculpture in class. The sculpture will need to be baked after class is over. Baking will take about an hour. I will attach instructions for baking in the Classroom. You can, also, paint the sculpture a different color or paint on eyes, etc. if you wish after the dinosaur is baked and cooled.
1 file available upon enrollmentHere is a list of supplies you will need for the class: -Appropriate workspace for making sculpture: protected flat surface (use wax paper or parchment paper or use what I use - flexible plastic cutting board like these: https://tinyurl.com/y6wpuozt) -Oven-bake polymer clay - 2 oz. - a color you want your dinosaur to be, or a neutral color that you can paint afterward. I use Sculpey III. You can get polymer clay at amazon.com, JoAnn, Hobby Lobby, and other art stores. -Knife to cut clay - can use a flatware knife -At least 6" ruler -Aluminum foil to use when baking the clay -Acrylic paint and paintbrushes if you wish to paint on the dinosaur after it has been baked and cooled -Minwax polycrylic varnish if desired to protect finished sculpture
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Learners may need help with measuring and cutting the clay. Learners will need adult help using the oven to bake the clay sculpture after class.
