Bethany Krull – Porcelain Beetles Workshop

October 25 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm CET


Porcelain Beetles Workshop – with Bethany Krull

In this workshop, I will share my technique for creating porcelain beetles that have thin and delicate legs that are also strong and resilient through the use of epoxy clay over a wire armature.

I will be showing you:

My solid forming techniques

How to sculpt with simple tools – using rubber ribs, rubber-tipped modeling tools, and loop tools.

How to hollow out and reassemble forms to stop them from cracking and exploding

Extra focus on tips and tricks to minimize cracking in porcelain.

How to create thin and delicate yet resilient legs that will not break

My secret slow fire kiln program which is perfect for porcelain sculptures.

I will also share my clear glaze recipe.
