French Bollywood workshop

The Slumdog Millionaire effect spilled over into a polymer clay workshop in France! Nathalie Sellem Legrain (Heurebleue) sent us a link to the pictures of the Bollywood workshop. The pictures of their dazzling dancing ladies will make you laugh.

The artists seemed to thrive as they draped their cut out dolls in fabrics created from stamped, layered and painted skinner blends. They continued the Indian motif in polymer frames that surrounded their creations.

Just like the movie, the workshop went from humble beginnings to a feel good ending. (It also reminds me of Susan Hyde’s angels.)

    Brilliant! Simply brilliant… I’m not sure who the teacher was… but it really reminds me of Sarajane Helm’s book on polymer clay quilting (ack – sorry, Sarajane, I forgot the name of it). Beautiful faux fabric work – you guys rock! 🙂

    And speaking of rocking… Cynthia, you’ve outdone yourself this week. Perhaps you should “go on vacation” more often. ;P 😀
