 The January meeting of the Central Mississippi Polymer Clay Guild will be on Saturday, January 19, 2013, at 10:00 a.m. at the Pearl Library, Pearl, Mississippi. The theme of our meeting is Alcohol Inks.  We will be learning three different techniques using alcohol inks in combination with gold foil and polymer clay – Ancient Metals, Watercolor Mokume Gane and Faux Batik.  This will be a fun meeting and will give you some new surface techniques to add to your bag of tricks.  Because the alcohol inks have to dry for each of these techniques, we will need to get started as soon after 10:00 as possible.   

Just as a reminder, be sure to dress in layers.  We have no control over the temperature in the room where we meet and sometimes it is hot, sometimes cold.  Best to be prepared.  Also, if you've made a name tag, but sure to wear it since we have several new members (and some of us old members don't have a great memory for names!!!

Now for our supply list:


Two 2 oz blocks of white
One 2 oz block of black
Two 2 oz blocks of translucent
One 2 oz block of pearl


Alcohol Inks – blue, yellow, green for Ancient Metals, red, aqua etc. for watercolor – just bring whatever you have.  I’ll have some to share.
Gold leaf – you’ll need at least 3 sheets
