Exploring the possibilities with polymer clay!

Bottoms Up!

Susan Gross demonstrates how to attach a perfect back side to a pendant.

I didn’t get pictures of all the great demos at our first meeting of the year (Thanks Pat, Roz and Kate!  Let me know if I missed anyone.)



Show and Tell


Catching up

Geeks like me have to worry about whether they should upgrade to iOS 8 before or after watching this great webinar on tools we all want to know more about.  If you haven’t attended one of these free I Love Tools webinar, you are really missing out.  You can register at http://www.craftcast.com.

One of these things is not like the others.

I think I have perfected the strong and easy barrette join.  Will publish how after my beta testers put them through their paces.

We can do that at PAPCG!  We have many renowned polymer clay artists in our midst.  Those of you who attended our last meeting in May will remember Ellen Marshall, one of our Guild Founders, giving a demo on surface techniques.  She teaches this nationally and even wrote a book, but our members get it for the low price of annual dues and the desire to learn about polymer clay.  Thank you, Ellen!

Many of these renowned artists started out as beginners coming to our Guild meetings.  We hope to see you at our next meeting on Sunday September 14 at our usual venue – Hillman House Apartments, 2nd floor.  

If you have never been to a meeting, check out the FAQ page  That answers questions about parking, what to bring, etc.  The CALENDAR has the agenda for meetings and classes.  The meeting on Sunday is open and all are welcome.  No dues necessary.

And just a little follow up on last May’s meeting.  I spotted Ellen carrying waxed paper with some painted sheets towards the trash can.  Arrrgh!  I had to take them home.  They were a little dried out, but I think I managed to try out a new color palette and learn a little more from Ellen’s design sense.  I will let you be the judge.

Thanks for following us!

I thought the image would link to the Pinterest board in the prior post.  It did not.  I have fixed that, but your email won’t show it, so here is the correct link for your convenience.  Enjoy!



Click the image to see our board for the Meeting this Sunday:  Watching your Backside and Making your Mark.  The theme is finishing the backs of our pieces and ways to sign them.

Guild members can pin to our boards.  You need to follow us and you will get an invite for the boards you can pin.  You need to do some clicking – but you will see it is easy.  We have several members pinning now.  Come join them!


Enjoy!  And send us a picture of your Summer Show and Tell to info@papcg.org.  Summer is almost over, so get ready for a real live Show and Tell at our next meeting September 14.
