Hand-built plates by Kip O’Krongly Just a few of the women potters of Northfield were able to gather at Kip O’Krongly’s studio this past week to watch her demonstrate how she makes her wonderful handbuilt terra cotta plates. My first caveat in this tutorial is that Kip works with Terra Cotta and additionally, it is a custom recipe of hers. That said, I do believe most any Terra Cotta will work and possibly stoneware. What I’m really not sure about is if you could do this with porcelain! What you will need: A file folder or other heavyish card stock for templates Cutting tool like this or a needle tool Rolling pin and 2 ¼ “ thick sticks or a rolling pin like Kip has with rubber washers that set the depth or maybe a slab roller And an extruder that looks like a calking gun. Banding wheel(s) Scoring tool Water Yellow rib A beveling tool with a rubber tip Here we go: Lay your plate template down- she made hers from a file folder and laminated them.
Art by Typewriter British artist Keira Rathbone uses typewriters, instead of brushes and pencils, to create amazing portraits and drawings. Found on: Odditycentral.com Submitted by Joshua Riehl El Greco Assumption of the Virgin Titian Early years:El Greco was born in 1541, in either the village of Fodele or Candia (now known as Heraklion) in Crete to a prosperous family. His initial training took place at the Cretan school but as Crete was owned by the Republic of Venice during this time, it made sense for El Greco to take up his career in Venice. It's thought he went there around 1567, although there is little information about the artist's time in the city. In 1570, El Greco moved to Rome and produced a series of works reflecting his studies in Venice. There El Greco met the acquaintance of many elite citizens, including the Roman scholar Fulvio Orsini, who went on to collect many of his paintings. El Greco set himself apart from other Cretan artists by evolving his style and inventing new and rare interpretations of traditional religious themes. Middle years:In 1577 El Greco relocated to Toledo, although he had no plans to settle there permanently.

What is the difference between polmer clay and sculpey 111 clay? - Yahoo!7 Answers . Sculpey III is just one brand (and line) of "polymer clay." It's often the cheapest of the small pre-colored brands polymer clay (at least when Michaels *isn't* having one of their sales --which is right now!). Polymer clays must be heat "cured" at a certain temperature for a certain length of time or they won't harden (they don't harden in the air by "drying" like "air-dry" clays do). When most people say "Sculpey," thery usually mean Sculpey III which comes in 2 oz bars, but other "Sculpeys" are the original Sculpey (white or terracotta color only, generally comes in 2 lb boxes), SuperSculpey (translucent flesh colored clay, in 1 lb box), or one of the other specialized Sculpeys, like Ultralight or Eraser Clay, etc. All of the regular Sculpeys are weak clays though after baking in any thin or projecting areas, so be aware of that if you need the clay to be thin.
