POLYMER BEADS & BUTTONS
BEGINNING 3-D ART
polymer clay & toaster oven
lots and lots of Polymer buttons and beads.
Meet my Beginning 3-Der's.
Below is a group shot of all their colorful creations strung
and ready for grading.
I used the first part of this assignment to teach Color Theory in a 3-D approach.
And then we made these beads and buttons from their color mixtures.
On their string this year were Marbleized Beads Or Buttons,
Candy Canes Beads.
Jelly Roll Buttons,
Stacked Stripes Buttons,
All Over Complex Bead,
Two Complex Buttons,
The Delgado Bead
(named after Lena Delgado Bradshaw- a former Whitney teacher),
The Multicolored Knot Bead (recycling leftovers),
and any extras they have time for.
Let's take a peek at a couple of strings up close.
Senior Jenna Llamas belongs to this first string
Next we have senior Elias Rodriquez.
We all like how he limited his palette.
And lastly we end with Cheryl-Mae Mallabo.
Great job all of you!
