October Meeting: Multi-layer Pendent/Pin

10070010.jpgThe Saturday October 11th meeting is going to be another great one! Jane Linn will be showing us translucent layering techniques similar to those of Kathleen Dustin, the amazing polymer clay artist. Jane has included some gorgeous examples of her work using these techniques. Come one and all and participate in this exciting meeting!
* When: Saturday, October 11, 2008, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
* Where: The new Hobby Lobby in Norman, 2417 W. Main, Norman, OK. (The classroom is up front, near the check out stands. Go right after entering & it’s the first door on the right.)
* What To Bring:
* Clear Liquid polymer clay
* Clay for background-approx. 1/2 block (1 oz.) each-your choice of colors. Jane encourages everyone to chose 2 colors-maybe a light and dark
* Pearl powders and/or Acrylic paints-your choice of colors
* Metal leaf/glitter-optional
* Canes-optional-(it looks like Kathleen Dustin used a number of canes using transparent clay and one color on her work, if your’e going for that look)
* Wire for bail -optional, if making pendent and prefer a bail to a cut hole
* 2 clean ceramic tiles
* Small stamps and stamp pads Penni Jo will be bringing some small face stamps that we can purchase (they are wonderful!). Except for the very smallest size, the stamps are not mounted so they easily stamp a curve (bead,etc.) *
* Heat gun — I think there will be enough people who already have one who are willing to share. However, Hobby Lobby has the heat gun on sale this week for $10, if you do want one *
* Flat brush-approx to inch optional, if rather use your finger to spread
* Sharpie pen-any size, any color. If you don’t have one we can share *
* Scissors
* Work surface
* Brayer *
* Exacto knife
* Pasta machine *
* Paper towels and/or wet wipes for clean up
* Wire cutter-optional-if using a wire bail in pendant
* Note: If you do not have the starred items, do not feel you have to buy them for this meeting. The guild and members have them and are happy to share.
