Learn a variety of things in this fun tutorial: sculpting, molding, casting, painting with chalk and alcohol inks, gilding, and assemblage using wire. First sculpt a simple but effective Dragonfly, then create a mold with a background. Next, make a cast with polymer clay from the mold and turn the Dragonfly into an artful piece by using a subtle and soft coloring method, or another that is much bolder and vibrant. Create variations with different backgrounds or let the dragonfly fly loose without a background. Some paints are optional. The projects here can be used for key fobs, pendants, pins, ornaments or key chains or tops for boxes.
