NOTE THE DATE: Due to a scheduling conflict at the library, we are meeting the SECOND Saturday instead of the THIRD Saturday this month. I’m sending this notice out earlier than usual both because of the earlier meeting date and the fact that some of these items will need to be ordered online since our local stores don’t carry them.
The March meeting of the Central Mississippi Polymer Clay Guild will be on Saturday, March 14th, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Pearl Library, Pearl, Mississippi. This meeting will focus on different uses for liquid polymer clay. Joyce will demo a string pulling technique that mimics an acrylic paint pouring technique and we will be looking at other ways to use the liquid clays in our polymer clay work. If you have discovered something fun to do with liquid polymer clay, come share it with us. Joyce will also show us a fun technique using scrap clay so bring your cane ends, your skinner blend scraps, etc.
