November Meeting Notes & Supply List



DUE TO UNAVOIDABLE CIRCUMSTANCES, THE NOVEMBER MEETING OF THE CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI POLYMER CLAY GUILD HAS BEEN CANCELLED.  

The November meeting of the Central Mississippi Polymer Clay Guild will be on Saturday, November 18th, at 10:00 a.m. at the Pearl Library, Pearl, Mississippi. We will be sharing the room for the morning portion of the meeting with the stamping group. 
Debbie Rhodes will be leading the group this month and her focus will be on skinner blends.  Making a good skinner blend is a technique that can be used in a wide range of projects. 
Please bring at least two colors of clay plus a couple of blocks of white.  You will also need your standard clay tools - pasta machine, cutting blade, work surface and plastic wrap to safely store your skinner blends to take home. 
Remember that the temperature in the library can be unpredictable so be sure to dress in layers.
