I took a workshop with Laurie Mika, an artist I admire who works primarily with polymer clay. There were other of her workshops I wanted to take more, but time and money made them unfeasible, so I took the one about painting on clay.
The techniques themselves were pretty simple and straighforward. I learned the most just by reading the required materials sheet: “Oh, that’s what you use? Okay. Seems pretty easy.” The best part though was that we got to use Laurie Mika’s stamps. She has a lot of cool medieval and iconic and religious/mystical images that I don’t have. This one of a palm reader’s guide, for example, I’d never even seen before.
