July 2013 Meeting: Faux Mother-of-Pearl Inlay

  • by

Myra will be teaching this month…

Supply list:

— Pre-baked black clay pendant with a deeply impressed texture, in whatever shape you wish.

— 1/2 block Premo pearl clay

— 1/4 block Premo translucent clay

Condition and thoroughly mix these two colors together before the meeting, to save time. You can adjust the mix according to your preference – increasing the proportion of pearl clay makes it more shiny, adding more translucent may make it look more natural.

— Mica powders (I have plenty of these colors to share):

  • Blue
  • Pink
  • Pearl white

— Small-to-medium size paint brush or sponge-tip make-up applicators

— Sandpaper or sanding sponges (I will bring some):

  • Coarse (for removing excess material after baking)
  • Medium, fine, & extra-fine (for polishing)

— Small bowl or dish for water

Tools:

— Pasta machine

— Blade

— Acrylic roller or brayer

The meeting will be held at the Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center at the State Fair Park (3000 General Pershing Blvd.) on July 13th from 1:30 to 4:30.
