In this 3-minute video with Madrid’s Natalia Garcia de Leaniz she talks about Spain’s young and growing guild which she helped found. She touches briefly on her approach to polymer and how she feels compelled to express her happiness through color. Natalia’s had significant health challenges which have contributed to a remarkable resolve to communicate her joy.
If you look closely during the video and on Natalia’s Flickr site you can see some of the texturing she has developed using rough air filter foam materials and other special techniques.
She has a down-and-dirty way with mokume gane that uses just a few thin layers of color impressed with two tools. Her vibrant colors are the real trick.
