March Meeting Reposted







March 16th Meeting Reposted (somehow it was removed, unbeknownest to me how!)
Cheryl at Queen City Clayers - 1 month ago

Hello everyone, This month we are going to be covering pens with a monochromatic Bargello technique using the info. provided by Christine Michel, in the magazine; From Polymer to Art "Pink". Here is a picture. http://www.flickr.com/photos/edelchen/7972585326/in/pool-frompolymertoart/ Even though we are going to Demo a Bargello technique, when decorating a polymer clay pen there are unlimited possibilities. You can even add a stand, and a little something extra. * Just Google *Polymer Clay Pens and you'll see a plethora of ideas, pictures and how to Tutorials.

Saturday's Demo

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to add some info. about the demo we are working on this Saturday.  Please  if you are using the reformulated Premo, please condition and leach the clay if it is to sticky. This bracelet cuff uses the Donna Kato "replacement technique" and if the clay is too sticky the shapes will to sticky and become distorted. Believe me, I know, re-working Demo step outs now and leaching my clay for the Demo, too sticky.
It is recommended to use Kato or Fimo that has already been conditioned and not sticky.
  Oh,an addition to the supply list; if you have deli paper sheets or parchement paper bring a least 2-4 sheets 8x8 or so. This is used to smooth the PC after the replacement technique.
Ok, I think that about wraps it up. See ya on Saturday.
Cheryl
