Upated Demo List for Sat Dec 8th

Ok I knew I'd forget a few things which might come in handy-

- Small paint brush
- Something to texture surface - I like the fish filter kind but you could use coarse sand paper or the cheap Velcro type curlers
- Some alcohol
- Deli wrap
- Larger cutters to cut out your final bead shape
- Sand paper 
- Paper towels
- Oh yes and it will work on darker clays too if you want to try that.
 
 
Original list:
- usual clay stuff - pasta machine, work surface, etc
- light colored clay (any kind will do)
- alcohol inks or markers or colored pencils
- latex gloves so you don't get colored fingers
- paint or guilders paste to antique or highlight
- small cutters or tips for adding designs (I use cake frosting tips and brass rods)
- light bulb or some kind of baking surface to curve your pieces (optional)
 
 
Don't worry I am sure we all will have items to share.
