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.
