The Central Mississippi Polymer Clay Guild will meet Saturday, March 19, 2011 at the Pearl Library beginning at 10:00 a.m. and running until 3:30 p.m. Mark your calendars for a day of fun and fellowship and learning more about working with polymer clay.
This month Jennifer will be sharing with us how to make a mosaic design with polymer clay tiles that we create from scratch! This is going to be a fun meeting and a great project that you can take and run with so plan to be there!
The supply list for this meeting is:
Clay (preferably Premo -- conditioned)
· White Clay - full brick - conditioned
· Black Clay - full brick - conditioned
· Gold - full brick - conditioned
· Another color of your choice - full brick conditioned (this will act as like your base color for your mosaic piece...meaning, if you want a mosaic that has hues of blue, then use blue clay, if you want a mosaic that has hues of pink, use pink clay...and on and on)
“Must have” Tools and Supplies:
· Be sure to bring your normal travel kit with a minimum of your pasta machine, roller, clay blade, ceramic tile or other work surface, baby wipes.
· Craft knife
· Paint brush and acrylic paints (in colors that go with the overall mosaic color you are going for)
· Metallic Powders like Pearl Ex
· Rub On Metallic Wax (Rub ‘n Buff)
· Rubber Stamps - any designs and alphabets
· If you want to incorporate crystals, seed beads and/or metal findings in your mosaic, bring some of those
· Genesis or Liquid Clay
· Flat wooden board (Both Michael's and Hobby Lobby have craft wood in various sizes...because we are going to literally make our tiles from scratch, may I suggest you not purchase a large piece of wood - would rather you work this first time on a small piece - like a 5" x 7" piece or smaller. If you want to buy a box, go for it and you can mosaic the top/sides)
· Weldbond Glue or E6000
· Ruler and/or Marxit tool
