Polymer Clay Mosaic Clock

Standard

A dear friend, Rita,  hosted her birthday party here a while back.  All the guests brought handmade gifts…here is what I made her.  This is all polymer clay except the glass covered numbers (12, 3, 6 & 9) which are rubber stamped on vintage french book paper over top of chapter numbers.  It was so much fun to make I”ve added it as a class.  This one is 12×12, the class is 8×8 and the clock works in class are gold instead of black…but otherwise..you too can make a polymer clay mosaic clock.

 

 

 

 

 

Make-and-Take today

Standard

Every Monday it is my pleasure to have a mini project (15 minutes) available for anyone who is interested to come in and make for FREE.

Today we are making polymer clay pendants featuring Perfect Pearls.  Starting with nothing but a clump of clay you will walk out of here with a beautifully textured and shimmery pendant ready to wear.

Not only is the project free, all the products we use to make the project are offered in the store at a 10% discount.

Today we have polymer clay, liquid sculpey, perfect pearls and texture plates all on sale.

Stop in anytime between 3pm and 6pm to learn a new technique and make something beautiful.

Wednesday 6p: Copper Pumpkin
This makes an awesome holiday decoration for your front door or inside your house. The finished piece measures 12×18. Add your choice of patina finishes. I’ll show you how to use all the 10 Seconds Studio texture tools and plates. You will mount the textured copper piece on to a pre-cut pumpkin shaped board. Add a copper wire hanger and voila! Fall art.

New Book for Thursday Nights?

Standard

Here is the poll to decide which book we’ll be covering on Thursday Nights during March and April.

*Note, Lisa Pavelka is going to be here teaching during the first weekend of April. If we select her book, we could arrange a special club members only session with her.

Also note, our book club works a bit differently than what you might think..
1. You do not have to own the book to participate
2. You do not have to attend all the meetings to participate
3. You do not have to own any of the supplies or materials used on the projects (that is what the studio provides!)

Join us for lots of fun as we get creative.
