Santa Playshop Santas

Class Description:
In this on-line playshop we'll explore quick and easy ways to create Santa Claus and St. Nicholas figures using push molds, polymer clay, paper, wire, paint and fabric.
Use the information to make one character or return again and again until the class registration expires on Dec. 22.

Materials available 24/7 until Dec. 22, 2016.

 A Santa Workshop

Santas can be a last-minute gift, a focal point for a table or mantle display, or just for fun.

Finished sizes range from 10 inches to 24 inches tall. No two ever the same! Quick and easy patterns. You get to choose the type of Santa depicted and the size.

For figures that are 11 to 24 inches tall we'll be using:
What a Character molds F3, F4 and/or F5 for the faces and F6 for the hands. If you want smaller hands, you can also use hand mold

For slightly smaller characters, 9 inches to 12 inches tall, you might choose to use molds F1 or #17 for the faces and #11 for the hands.

Of course you don't have to use more than one face mold as each mold can be tweaked to create a multitude of faces. If you're not familiar with these molds you can see them at http://www.weefolk.com/molds_list.htm .  

Purchase of molds is not required. You can also use your own molds or faces that you sculpt . In that case you would just use our techniques and patterns.

These will be fun and friendly Santa designs, not labor intensive or detail perfect. Quick and easy patterns make these Santas and Elves a Do-in-a-Day projects! Well, that might be a slight exaggeration. Maybe a couple of days!!!!!?


Register for the class via the link at the bottom of this page, by phone or via mail. Registered students will be sent a materials list as well as directions for accessing the private webpages on Yahoo.com and Vimeo.com.
