The July meeting of the Central Mississippi Polymer Clay Guild will be on Saturday, July 19, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. at the Pearl Library, Pearl, Mississippi. Debbie will be leading the meeting this month and her focus will be on making canes using the extruder. Some of you have already purchased the new Lucy Clay extruder and dyes, however Debbie says that if you have not, just bring your regular extruder and we will share the dyes. It is my understanding they fit the Makins green extruder. Some of the canes she will show us can be made with the dyes we already have.
By special request, we are also going to have a repeat of the flattened glass Christmas ornaments we decorated last fall. Arlene will lead that demo. If you want to participate in that demo, bring canes – or we can use some of what we make during the meeting – a coordinating clay and white. If you have any of the orange ModPodge molds with a border mold, bring them. Arlene will bring hers to share. If you have Genesis, bring it. Arlene will also have some to share. She will also have a few of the flattened round glass ornaments but if you have any, bring them to the meeting.
Clay – conditioned prior to the meeting
1 two-ounce block of black clay
2 two-ounce blocks of white (bring 3 if you want to do the ornament)
2 two-ounce blocks of clay in a color you like
2 two-ounce blocks of clay in a coordinating color
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.
