Only a week left to the next ClayDay! Next coming Sunday, Enid will be demonstrating a "Finishing – Surfaces, Edges, Backs and Bails". By learning the basics, this technique will come in handy in your pursuit of making professional polymer clay jewellery.
We have also agreed that members will demonstrate any ideas they have to making things using scrap clay. Our guild committee members have a few ideas on how to turn waste scrap clay into something beautiful! Please also feel free to demonstrate to the other members any other way you make use of scrap clay. By using up scrap clay you will save a lot of money on clay and not waste any.
Hope you can join us by sending an RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
It was the first meet for 2019 and a great start to the year. Anne taught us how to make a ripple effect which has been simplified so it isn't too complicated. The cut using a ripple blade has to be 90 degrees and you will instantly get good results.
The effect gives you nice patterns and possibilities only limited to your imagination. Anne created many types of jewellery and items using this technique.
In the afternoon Shelley shows us how to make her famous fairy doors. Using simple sculpting techniques to achieve a realistic door in mini form. You can also decorate it with flowers, moss or even leaves. Texturing and shading the wood and stone add depth and realism.
We are glad that some members tried it out even though they are not used to making sculptures. A lot of fairies and little mice will be getting a pleasant surprise.
We also saw members most recent makes. There is some serious talent in the guild!
We had all of our usual tables, clay for sale as well as 'trash to treasure'. Some lucky members won some gifts during the raffle and we would like to thank everyone who donated prizes.
Thank you again to everyone who attended and if you have missed out, remember to catch the next one!
We are a group of Polymer Clay enthusiasts based in East Anglia in the UK.
