What to Expect:

In this hands-on session, we’ll delve into the innovative art of Textured Bargello, where the very process of assembly creates captivating textures and patterns. Whether you’re a seasoned artisan or new to Bargello, this meeting promises to ignite your imagination and inspire your polymer clay creations.

Supplies Needed:

  • Clay* in at least 4-5 colors (condition beforehand to save time)
  • Work Surface (preferably glass)
  • Pasta machine
  • Stiff, sharp blade
  • Ripple blade(s)
  • Extruder with discs
  • Cutters, if desired, in your choice of shapes
  • Texture sheet for back, if desired
  • Small spray bottle with water
  • Anything needed to finish your project such as findings, cords, chains, jewelry pliers, etc.

*Note: the amount of clay you will need will depend on your chosen project. I used enough clay (1 oz?) to fill my extruder for the example project and that produced more than enough extruded pieces. You’ll need 1 or 2 separate colors for the foundation/backing.
