The January meeting of the Central Mississippi Polymer Clay Guild will be on Saturday, January 17, 2015, at 10:00 a.m. at the Pearl Library, Pearl, Mississippi. Before the meeting be thinking about what you want to do, learn, etc. over the next year. It is so nice when we have everything planned ahead of time. Of course, we can still be flexible if something comes up that we want to work on.
We also need to bring things to refresh our “window” in the library.
I’m going to kick the year off with something we’ve done before but not for a very long time. Ghost Canes. Ghost canes are great finishing elements in a millefiori design because they cure almost clear so what is under the cane shows through. We will be making several variations of ghost canes including a simple jelly roll (which I use in just about every millefiori veneer that I make), window panes, lace cane, flower cane and if we have time, a butterfly wing. Sounds like a lot but all are simple. And there will be no color mixing, very little conditioning… easy, peasy!
