PC02: Potpourri of Polymer Clay Techniques

Bead & Button October 1998

next

Artist Donna Kato is a wonderful teacher, and this video is inspiring. Donna teaches five techniques and tosses out countless useful tips. Her version of mokume gane looks easy and fun and produces beautiful results. Next she shows how to make sophisticated ikat patterning with a simple checkerboard cane, a blade, a Marxit tool, and a pasta machine. Then she makes the assembly of a kaleidoscope cane seem easy. The fourth technique is magic. Donna takes a pile of unrelated cane scraps and quickly turns it into a beautiful marbled "paper." Finally, she explains her translucent jelly roll, which looks like golden burled wood.
