Meeting June 2010

Our meeting had a lot of points discussed for the new year: Books and DVD Changes in the borrowing of the books and DVD's  starting in september: the books and DVD will be allowed only in the time allowed during the meeting.

Our next clay day will be July 15 at Nicole's studio. Notre prochaine journée de patouille sera le 15 juillet à l'atelier de Nicole. ... [Lire la suite]

Truc de Fanny Fanny's tric

Fanny showed us a neat trick to put the ink on the clay for the multilayered effect. Using a stamp with some velcro  and a piece of felt. You ink the felt not the clay. The ink is easier to put on the sheet of clay, no globs, and when finished can be thrown away. You can cut pieces of felt from a sheet of felt bought at the Dollar Store.
