Totem Fun with Marlaine Verhelst, NIADA Artist
Sometimes you just want to play around and sculpt a bit without doing a large project like a doll that needs a body or a costume.
Making a personal totem is a lot of fun! When I was creating my first totem I could not wait to make a class to share my methods.
A totem is a great gift for a friend or family member!
This class is a fun class for beginners as well as experienced sculptors. The shapes and techniques are simple. For instance, I use pins for eyes. If you are more experienced you can go all the way and add your own techniques using this class for inspiration.
I used air drying clay, La Formo but you can easily replace by using Creative Paperclay or any other clay you prefer.
