Bead Workshop

Saturday we had a wonderful time learning to create beads using polymer clay.

Many colors were used in the process of creating beads.

There was a lot of camaraderie during the workshop as everyone enjoyed learning and sharing ideas during the creative process.

Polymer clay is a type of hardenable modeling clay based on the polymer polyvinyl chloride (PVC). It typically contains no clay minerals, but like mineral clay a liquid is added to dry particles until it achieves gel-like working properties, and similarly, the part is put into an oven to harden, hence its colloquial designation as clay.

The time flew by as everyone relaxed and enjoyed the process of making beads.

A pasta-making machine is a popular multi-purpose tool for polymer clay artists. It is used to create sheets of uniform thickness, to mix colors or created variegated sheets, and to condition (soften) the clay.
