In February we will be making Magic Beads – not to be confused with Jack’s beans that we could climb. These are light-weight hollow beads that can be made in almost unlimited shapes and designs. For those who want to go further, we will also venture into pendants.
1-2 oz. (your color choice) of 2 strong clays (not Scupley)
3 or 4 index cards (any size) or card stock
2 or 3 paper towels
Favorite alcohol ink color(s)* with the items you need to use it, such as plastic gloves, applicator (i.e., Q-tips, sponge wedge, felt applicator-?)
2 or 3 candy papers*
*If you don’t have these, I have them and am happy to share.
X-acto knife or craft knife
Needle tool or crochet needle
Scissors (5 or 6 inch or less scissors will be easier to use than longer ones)
Favorite clay tools
Veil or crackle cane, if you have any from our meeting
