Queen City Clayers Meeting Minutes

Meeting was called to order.  Discussion of on coming demo's and meet ups. October and November there will be no meeting for Queen City Clayers.  Our next meet up will be Dec 13th at noontime.  The demo will be one that Patti has prepared for.  She will post the supply list before the meeting.  There is a list of individuals bringing food/drink items for this meet up.  It's a holiday party for those that can attend.  If you can attend and have not signed up for a food/drink, please get with Cheryl and let her know what you can bring.  It is not covered dish, it is more like a banquet of appetizers/goodies. 
January meeting will be the 4th weekend as usual. 
Nancy demonstrated the Geisha Girl and there were hand outs for patterns and directions.  The dolls can be quite cute and attractive. Many opportunities to embellish to your hearts content. 

Attendees:
Patti, Cheryl, Maggie, Nancy, Linda, Vicki, Jennie and Lynn.

Hi everyone.  September is upon us and our next meet up is Sept 27th.  I'm excited and a bit nervous as I am going to demo a Geisha Doll.  This idea came from a previous (old) issue of Polymer CafĂ© back the summer of 2007.  The doll is adorable.  Our dolls will be approximately 6" high and I've adjusted the pattern to accommodate our size.

Supply List: 
Usual Clay Tool Kit
Flesh Color Clay
White Color Clay
2 Bright Matchy Colors For the Inner and Outer Robes
Black Color Clay
Assorted bits of various colors might come in useful
Scrap Clay a wad about 3" by 3" will be used for the base
Color to cover your base with that should also match the colors you've chosen.  I often go with the sash being the same color as the base.
If you have tiny flower canes you may find them to come in handy for your decoration of the outer robe as you want it to appear like it is fabric.
Super Glue Gel
Poly Paste

I will bring the skewers, the micron pens, and the blush make-up.

I'm looking forward to having a creative day  with you all.
Nancy
