About This Class

This class will guide you to sculpt your very own mushroom sculpture. I will be using polymer clay and other media to color it : dry pastels and acrylic paints. It is a fun project that can be done in a couple of hours and is very versatile. No special skills required to try this class out!

This class will guide you through sculpting three types of mushrooms. It is build up in a chronological order, so you can easily follow along and bake when required.

1 - Learn how to make a quick sketch and decide up front how you are building up your sculpture
2 - How to sculpt the mushroom caps
3 - How to sculpt the mushroom stems
4 - Assemble cap + stems and add the gills
5 - Sculpt a flat fungus
6 - Make a base for your sculpture
7 - Finishing Touches

However, since we are going to use sharp tools, children need to be under the attention of an adult.

Artist and Sculptor // aka PetitPlat

Started sculpting miniature food in the summer of 2007, earned my living from miniature food jewelry over the years but have evolved to become a full time mixed media artist.

Next to sculpting all kinds of colorful objects and painting in an abstract way to compliment my sculptures, I started to teach as early as 2011 at polymer clay conferences, wrote and self-published a book in 2013 and started a youtube channel in 2015.

My work has been featured on TV, in various Dollhouse and Jewelry Magazines and Art Books. Full Press Release here.
