Holly Gage Masterclass

Repousse Effects in Metal Clay


This Masterclass runs for two days or three days with Holly Gage. Due to the incredible demand for places on this class when it was first advertised as a three day Masterclass, we've asked Holly to come a little earlier and run a two day Masterclass for those on the waiting list and anyone else who really wants to learn this technique from Holly.

Learn the secrets of transforming original photos or drawings into 
highly detailed, low relief images, which look similar in style to 
traditional Repoussé. Discover how to wet-work a reverse polymer mold of your image; manipulate the clay and use tools to create different  hand-wrought textural effects; and to carve details for the finishing touch.

The Repousse effect is only achieved by this technique and is 
different from photopolymer plates. The results are unique and 
original, beautifully echoing the hand of the artist.
