Metal Clay & Color

I'm thrilled to announce that I have a project included in the soon-to-be-available new book, Metal Clay & Color, compiled by Mary Wohlgemuth and published by Kalmbach. The project is a step-by-step tutorial to making a fine silver clay ring with an embedded band, accented with a jolt of colored resin. I give tips on how to mix color into the resin, how to level the resin in the reservoir, and how to avoid bubbles as the resin sets up.

Other projects in the book cover adding color via polymer clay, ceramics, patinas, gemstones, glass, seed beads & more. The twenty artists/designers who contributed to the book include: Lorena Angulo, Lorrene Baum-Davis, Maggie Berman, Pat Bolgar, Susan Breen Silvy, Barbara Briggs, Sandra Butchko, Catherine Davies Paetz, Pam East, Joy Funnell, Hadar Jacobson, Patricia Kimle, Irina Miech, Kim Otterbein, Cindy Pankopf, Cindy Silas, Jewelyn Vanoni and Michela Verani (and me, of course!).

Preorders are available from Kalmbach Books.
