Description

An extensive class to go into depth on how to mix colors, what materials to use, which sculpting tools to use to sculpt just any mineral you would like.

During this class I am showing how to make five different minerals from scratch with my own color twist inspired from real minerals.

3.3. Sculpting : Varadinite

4. Final Words

You will learn

The class project is to pick a mineral you really like and reproduce it as a sculpture. Yaaay! FREEDOM!
You can either reproduce the shape and change the color or reproduce it in it’s entirety.

No need to make an exact replica, but your final sculpture needs to look like a mineral, as this is the purpose of this class. 

The size of your sculpture doesn’t matter, it all depends on what you want to do with it in the end, either integrate it in a bigger artwork or use it in a piece of jewelry.

Please share your final project with the class as well!
