This New Jersey Polymer Clay Guild’s May workshop was an exciting one. Everyone seemed to have a demo to try. Joyce demonstrated some professional techniques for sanding and buffing. Her work always has the mark of a professional with her glossy surfaces from her expert sanding and buffing techniques. Joyce explained how she rigged up a Black and Decker cleaner to use for sanding and her large grinder.
Robin demoed skinner blends and some ways to use them.
Susan, demoed Maggie Maggio’s polymer clay split rings. Joyce has had a lot of experience with them so she showed a slight variation on the shape that she came up with. The rings are closer to actual split rings. In fact the necklace shown is made by Joyce using split rings. It is of course highly polished, just about anything Joyce does is.
Check out the great items people brought to show off on Facebook. Our next workshop is June 5, I’m already looking forward to it!
