Face Cane Class at Carolina Stamper!

Another great weekend! This time 9 ambitious artists tried their hand at the most difficult of all - face canes in polymer clay taught by Barbara McGuire. Keudos to everyone who hung in there - as in the late afternoon faces began to take shape. We all learned information about working with Polymer clay as well as proportion and shape. These cherished canes went home to become decoration on beads and panels - unlimited only by our imagination.
Our next classs with Barbara is in the fall - Stay tuned for exact dates and times. We will be making the braceletes shown in the picture above. Barbara's complete schedule is posted on her site and you are welcome to make requests for upcoming classes.
Be sure to check out the bead section in Carolina Stamper to find accents for all your jewelry needs.
Just in case you haven't seen the new youtube video clip by Tim Holtz, check it out! We also carry Grungeboard - and you'll find this new material a joy to work with. This is a great medium for stamping or scrapbooking.
Comments? We're here to help, and hope you'll be back soon.

Great Weekend with Barbara McGuire

This past weekend we all had a great time learning clay arts with artist Barbara McGuire who taught classes in both Art clay silver and polymer clay. We learned how to fused gold to silver in a great Keum boo class on Friday night. Saturday's class was an introduction to working in polymer clay and featured embedding glass baubles in textured clay, highlighting captured images. The afternoon session was a tutorial on making molds with various compounds and creating a tinted translucent impression from the molds. We also learned classic polymer techniques such as antiquing and sanding and buffing the clay to a high shine. We hope you will join us for future clay classes.
