The September meeting of the Central Mississippi Polymer Clay Guild will be on Saturday, September 20, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. at the Pearl Library, Pearl, Mississippi.  Arlene will be leading the meeting this month and the topic is “Pumpkins”, two great projects to get you thinking about fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving!  This will involve a lot of hands on work – some scroll work, some sculpting, some experimentation with textures and multiple bakings so we will need to get started as soon after 10 as possible.  It should be a fun class so I hope to see you all there. 

SUPPLY LIST:

Clay – conditioned prior to the meeting
2 two-ounce blocks of yellow clay – I used Premo Cadmium Yellow
1 two-ounce block of red – I used Premo Cadmium Red
2 two-ounce blocks of clay in a leafy color or 1 Premo Spanish Olive, 1 Premo Green and 1 Premo Wesabi
Small amount of black and white

Other Supplies
Be sure to bring your normal travel kit with a minimum of your pasta machine, clear roller, clay blade, ceramic tile or other work surface, baby wipes.

Heat gun or embossing gun – this is a MUST HAVE for this project
Extruder with small single hole die
Genesis – I’ll have some to share
4 texture plates/rubber stamps 
Leaf shaped cookie cutters
Heart shaped cutters - 1/4 inch
Corn starch
Pair of small scissors
Delta Spice Brown acrylic paint – I’ll have a bottle to share
DecoArt Dazzling Metallics Emperor’s Gold acrylic paint – I’ll  have a bottle to share
Scruffy paint brush – deerfoot stippler works great if you have one, if not just a slightly stiff bristled paint brush

4 inch tile that we got at the Jana workshop is also quite useful 

I will provide the pvc pipe and candle cups for both projects.
