Art with Aves Supply List

1). 1/4 or 1 lb of Aves Apoxie sculpt (white or natural, but any color you like is fine). A pound will get you through more projects, while the 1/4lb will be perfect trial size to get to know it.

2). Bottles – they can be vintage, from your kitchen, etc. You just don’t want to use a bottle that has a big mouth/opening (like a pickle jar for example).

3). Found objects to use on top of the bottle opening. Nothing too heavy. I used a porcelain doll head and also a doll head that I had made. Go through your collectibles and look for things that you may be able to connect to the bottle using the method I show you.

4). While I do not cover this in the free class, also think about if you want to do something to the bottle. Maybe collage on it? Maybe spray paint it (make sure the spray paint is designed for glass. Krylon makes glass spray paint. Maybe collage on it and then glue a favorite photo or image on the front side. Be creative!

I have read all the product information, and ordered the product Apoxie Clay. Will we be worked with an armature, or be making a solid object?

we will working on joining small items to the top of a bottle. if you look at the picture on this page, these are the things I made in the mini class. https://keciadeveney.com/courses/art-with-aves/

I am confused. I already own apoxie sculpt which is what you specify in the above supply list, but, when I initially read about the class it was to use apoxie clay, which I would have to purchase. Can I use the apoxie sculpt?

So excited to do this class, and I just signed up for your class in Jeanne Olivers as well!

Thank you for this demonstration. I was introduced to aves years ago by Michael DeMeng, but haven’t used it very much since. It was great to watch you problem solve and remind me of how versatile it can be. I haven’t been making many art dolls lately, but you’ve inspired me to get back to them.
