Christi Friesen Week

Christi Friesen & Katie Oskin

It’s Christi Friesen Week!

I spent the past weekend with a terrific group of ladies who spent two full days taking classes with Christi Friesen. Christi is just as wonderful  as every email & phone call I ever shared with her. More wonderful in fact … I love her to pieces.  In honor of her and all she does for the Polymer Clay community … it’s Christi Friesen week!

Tomorrow, for WIP Wednesday, I’ll share pictures of the journey & the weekend activities. On Thursday we’ll talk about B’Sue Boutiques and her awesome shop for findings and metals. And join me on Friday for some terrific giveaways, you won’t want to miss it!

Polymer Clay Bird Tutorials: The Friesen Project Revisited

Fancy Bird Tutorial by KatersAcres | For Polymer Clay, Sugar Paste, Gum Paste, Modeling Clay, & Much More

Polymer Clay Bird Tutorials REVISITED! Since we are in the Mixed Media Book, I got a request from several of you asking if we could “please, oh please” make birds again.

In either case, we’re going to be doing birds again this week! So break out the clay, it’s time for a bird tutorials. Continue reading Polymer Clay Bird Tutorials: The Friesen Project Revisited
