Christi Friesen is an award-winning artist, who works in mixed media. Her work has been showcased in numerous books, magazines and exhibits. She is the author of over a dozen how-to books on creating with polymer clay. She teaches throughout the world, using humor and positive energy to encourage students to stretch their creativity, technical skills and artistic confidence.
In this video, Christi demonstrates how to create a mold using Mega Mold and a couple pieces she pulled from the meadow. She creates a piece from the mold using Air Modeling Clay, and then embellishes the piece with Swellegant - Bronze Metal Coating, creating a metal surface. She then adds color with Swellegant Patina and Swellegant Dye-Oxides for a unique look.
We have included a second video: Christi introduces us to the Swellegant line, which is made up of Metal Coatings, Patinas, Dye Oxides and Clear Sealants. Swellegant is perfect for adding color to your creations!
