Love, love love!

Yes, I love this class. I knew nothing about epoxy clay before I started, and now feel very comfortable working in this medium. I have successfully transferred color transfer copies to the clay with great success, something I had been wanting to try for years. I had been ready to try polymer clay...but the baking (fumes worry) held me back. The air drying on this product is awesome. I also learned how to make molds and have now made over 100 Czech button molds. I have not had any ...
Very good class with lots of information. I have been working with polymer clay for years, and have just recently discovered epoxy clay. Thank goodness because I was starting to feel stale with the polymer. Thank you Debbie for the great tutorial. My only suggestion would be changing the camera angles...several parts were difficult to follow due to bad camera work. Other than that I will definitely recommend to friends.
Tons of great instruction

This is an excellent course, chock full of really good tips and inspiration. I can't believe how much instruction you get! Debbi is a great teacher who obviously knows her stuff, and you end up with lots and lots of great ideas, and an eagerness to get going on your own stuff!

Debbi is an excellent instructor and has shown that expoxy clay is a unique substance that has endless possibilities. I very much enjoyed each class and will incorporate it into my beading projects as it allows for more creativity. Thank you craftsy.
