One more day until the Book Tour!

Can't wait for the tour to start? If you want to enjoy a few hours of incredible inspiration have a broswe through the work of these incredible artists who also use resin clay in their work. Artist like Rebecca Schumaker and her wonderful detailed Gargoyle Girl.


 Or perhaps take a class and learn some of their techniques? 

When I first started out in doll making I took a Jean Bernard's Dragon Wings Class at a conference and it really opened my eyes to the possibilities! 
Now Jean does online classes so you can take her classes wherever you are. Be sure to check out all she has to offer and get yourself inspired! 
Jean Bernard offers this amazing free Fibre Optic Wing Tutorial on her site.
Who knew kleenex, fibre optics and of course Jean's famous glitter could be so wonderful!
