NWPCG Business Meeting & Program Presentation (Glass Globe Covering Techniques)

November 1 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

November’s meeting topic will be a ‘refresher’ demonstration on how to cover glass spheres with polymer clay. Maria Brown will show us a few techniques and tips for professional-looking results with veneers of clay and with square cane slices. It’s easy and a great way to use up leftover canes. You’ve probably got some old, scratched-up glass Christmas tree balls hiding away somewhere- bring them- and some to share, if you have them. We’ll magically transform them into beautiful one-of-a-kind artworks. (Okay, it’s not magic, but they are cool techniques!)
Maria will also bring free samples of her Ornament Baking Tube (pat. pend.) for curious clayers. You’re curious now, aren’t you?
You will need:
– work surface
– pasta machine
– 4 to 6 ounces of your favorite colors of clay
– texture sheets and mica powders, optional
– about 3-4 inches long of any square cane, about one inch square
– blade for slicing cane slices and an exacto blade
– smallish ‘roller’ for smoothing (I use a knitting needle)
– isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol
– old glass Christmas tree ball
– pencil, chopstick, bamboo skewer, or skinny little stick from your yard
– masking, blue, or Scotch tape
