Following a very determined and successful campaign by Tonja Lenderman to track down Mike Buesseler's videos and the generosity of Tory Hughes, whose company owns them, the IPCA is very happy to announce a permanent home from where they can be viewed.

Tory made it a condition that there is to be no charge for the videos and Tonja has added a note to each one to that effect. They must also be freely available to all, not just our members, and we are very happy to agree to that. Enjoy watching a polymer master in action! Thank you very much Tonja and Tory.

To view these videos, please visit the IPCA YouTube Channel at: https://www.youtube.com/user/IntlPolymerClay

Mike Buesseler teaches you how to make beautiful vivid landscapes in polymer clay. You will see how to create land and sky elements in your images, how to achieve good color shading, and how to incorporate clouds, stars, moons, meteors, trees and shadows. For the first time on video you will see his original "jaggy-cut," which produces a subtle, painterly effect and enhances the depth and realism of these landscapes. Mike is well-known for this work, and we are lucky that he is willing to share his techniques and his good spirit with us.

Time: 75 minutes
Year: 1998

Mike Buesseler brings another original approach to polymer clay, this time finding ways to make the light dance with the clay. He acheives striking effects from glassy to lustrous to shimmery to sparkling, and makes magic out of the contrast between light and shade. This tape includes all the information you need to understand and work with polymer clays which have a "metallic" property.

Time: 77 min.
Year: 1999
