About This Class

b762449e

This class is a great project for all levels, even people who never sculpted before.
It is a great way to start sculpting, as succulents are the easiest plants to make from clay.

You are also going to learn how to deal with colors and play around with composition as you go. I'm going to guide you through my own creative process, from finding the right reference pictures online or in books, deciding on colors, composition and how to sculpt a few different types of corals and sponges. The class is organized as following:

1. Introduction
2. Color Mixing
3. Necklace Base
4.1. Sculpting : Echeveria
4.2. Sculpting : Cactus
4.3. Sculpting : Rose-Shaped succulent
4.4. Sculpting : Sedum
5. Necklace Composition
6. Necklace Back Composition
6. Finishing Touches
7. Adding the Chain
8. Final Words

Stephanie Kilgast

Award winning contemporary artist.

Inspired by natural forms, St?phanie Kilgast grows colorful organic sculptures on abstract backgrounds, celebrating the beauty of nature and opposing it with abstraction, often a metaphor for the brutal impact of human activities on Earth's biodiversity.
Yet, the opposition between biodiversity and human activities also creates a beautiful artwork, a subtle balance to obtain true sustainability.
She built her reputation and her sculpting skills around hyperrealistic miniature...
