Making Faces in Madison with Michael Marx!
(Explorations into Caricature and Expression)
Saturday Dec. 2 and Sunday Dec. 3, 2023
107 S. Market Street, Madison NC 27025
A face is more than just eyes, a nose and a mouth. In this two-day
class we will be exploring different ways of making a face (human, animal
or otherwise) using fine silver metal clay. We will start off by making a
hollow-form base, then, depending on the kind of face desired, make the
main facial details and embellishments. We will explore expressions using
different methods of creating eyes, noses, teeth and lips, and the potential
added details of a tongue, horns, eyebrows or even facial hair! We will
further embellish them with more texture and details. Amazing results are
possible and the outcomes are limitless. This class is for both beginners and
experienced metal clay artists to learn new techniques and to push their
creativity. What you will learn will have applications beyond the class
All levels of experience welcome. Basic metal clay working techniques are helpful.
Students should bring: Standard toolkit, work surface, textures, size 0 clay shapers and any other tools they prefer. Clay Revolution will have extra tools and equipment on site.
The registration fee is $435 and includes both days of instruction along with 50 grams of Project X .999 Flex Silver Clay!
