April 7 Demo

CATherien is in Chicago for this Friday’s demo so I’m volunteering to do a demo in her place. The location is a Yahoo chat, Friday April 7th at 2 EST. To gain access you must have me on your yahoo list. Please email me to request my ID. My email is erobitai@shaw.ca

I will be demoing a simple six petal flower cane, a smaller slice-bead cane and a leaf cane.  To clay along with me you’ll need:

  • a 2 ounce skinner blend(half a pack of colour + half pack of white with crumb of other colour mixed in), colour to lighter tint of itself(close to white)
  • a small amount, a 1/4-1/2 pack, of the darker colour with a smaller amount of black mixed in for the outlining and veining in both the leaf and flower
  • transluscent clay, already conditioned, to pack the flower cane, about half an ounce
  • a small amount of a different colour or cane, for the flower center. I’ll be using a simple brown and light brown lace cane.

After I’ve got the flower made, we’ll whip out a much smaller slice bead cane and then we’ll make a shaded leaf cane.

Instructions on how to make a skinner blend can be found here. I’ll demo how to go from the sheet to the skinner blend plug as I go, probably.
