ClayDay kicked off with another demo from Enid showing us how to finish off pieces with a professional touch. She shows all the various textures you can do using bought or even using things that we already have in the house. We even saw how she made some bails (after curing) using a stencil so you can get a uniform look in your pieces.
She even showed us how to make borders look very neat - thick or narrow. We should always clean-up as much as we can before curing and a bit of polishing will help create a more professional-looking finish.
After lunch, members showed us how they use up their scrap clay to make into other things. Enid made a cool mosaic using scraps and there are infinite possibilities for this as shown by other members who followed this technique
Shelley made some 'galaxy' marbles using her brightly coloured scrap clay and they are so easy to make and turn into beads.
Members also brought their recent makes to the meet. Everyone has such unique talent!
We hope everyone had a good meet this time. Our next ClayDay is only 10 days away and we can't wait!
We are a group of Polymer Clay enthusiasts based in East Anglia in the UK.
