“By The Sea” Faux Ivory Polymer Clay Book
By Lisa Renner
In my “By The Sea” workshop you will learn to make a beautiful Coptic-bound book using polymer clay for the covers with a veneer of Faux-Ivory. We all know the imitative properties of polymer clay and the look of faux ivory lends itself perfectly to this medium. The process is simple and can be adjusted to resemble not only ivory, but also bone or wood. Image-transfer techniques will be shown so that you can place imagery on the covers if you desire. I will be using imagery of sea shells in this video. A scrimshaw effect is quite the complement to the theme and easily achieved through mark-making and embedding small bits of sliced cane, seed beads and wire.
Other techniques learned in this class include antiquing, constructing a couple of basic canes, and Coptic stitch book binding. Approximate book size is 4 ½ x 6” which is great for carrying with you to use for note-taking in workshops, or as a personal sketchbook or journal. I am honored that one of my book samples is part of the permanent Scrimshaw exhibit at the Mystic Seaport Museum in Mystic, Connecticut.
