In this playshop we'll
explore quick and easy ways to create Santa Claus and St. Nicholas figures using push molds, polymer clay, paper, wire,
Use the information to make one character or
make a whole series in different sizes and in a variety of
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!!!!!
sizes of the figures created in this class 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.
1. Do we have to use the What A
Character Push Molds?
Answer: No. Purchase of molds is not required.
You can use your own
molds or choose faces that you sculpt . In that case you would just use
our techniques and patterns.
2. Which molds do you use in the class samples?
Answer: 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
f10, which includes 2-inch and 1 3/4 inch hands.
For slightly smaller
characters, 9 inches to 12 inches tall, you might
choose to use our molds F1 or F17 for the faces and hand mold
f10. For the tiniest Santas, the even smaller hand mold f11 can
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
