FuN, fUn, Fun! Here we are claying away at the July Meeting. In the first picture is Kathy. Then the second picture has Julie and Brenda. The third one is Brenda and Maggie. Laurie is in the fourth picture, and Julie again, all is having a great time.

more supplies

I forgot to include translucent and scrap clay. Also bring a small bowl and a soft toothbrush. We are going to try out a new technique.

Supplies for August 15th meeting

We will be doing flower and leaf canes at our August meeting. In addition to your usual clay supplies bring some skinner blends in some pretty flower colors. Example - pink to light pink, yellow to white, blue to white etc. Also bring some green skinner blends for the leaves. Use about half a package for each color in the blends. Leave them as slabs instead of rolling up into plugs. You will need shades of green clay for the leaves, some gold and browns and white and black clay. Since we are doing caning I would highly recommend a stiffer clay like Kato or Premo. See you then!

Hi everyone,

I'm running behind as usual posting about our July 25th meeting.

We had it a Expressive Impressions on S. Tryon as usual.

There were 6 of us there. Brenda, Julie, Cheryl, Laurie, Kathy and Maggie(me).

We had a very short discussion of guild business. Show and tell followed. Julie showed off her latest Maasai woman cane and beaded pieces from her trip to Africa, Brenda has been busy making photo transfers, Cheryl and I showed off our turtles from last time. After that Julie did a demonstration of a really cool technique using a skinner blend.
We all left with pretty little pieces to use. Laurie took some photos of the meeting so hopefully we can get them posted soon. A fun time like always. Sharing and learning and laughing. That's what makes clay guilds so great.
Our next meeting is on August 15th. We will be demonstrating flower and leaf cane techniques
so we will have pieces to use for our September Demo on finishing polymer clay jewelry. We have had many requests for both of these so don't miss it.
