Zoom - Craft Group - June
Time & Location
About the Event
This month we’ll be making polymer clay earrings!
While COVID restrictions still prevent us from meeting face-to-face, we’re focusing on crafts you can do at home. This month, we’ll be making stud earrings using turquoise polymer clay and faux gold leaf. We’ll be adapting this 12 min YouTube tutorial to make circular studs but please feel free to put your own stamp on your design https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6-pslA2BEM&t=531s
Some materials will be provided by the Craft Group piggy bank. I’ll be in touch with all those who RSVP to arrange delivery to your homes. Materials provided by the craft group: Turquoise polymer clay Faux gold leaf Earring posts and backs Some mod podge gloss lustre Some mod podge dimensional magic Tooth picks If you’re then able to provide these additional materials yourself, that would be very helpful. If you can’t get hold of any of these, please let me know and I’ll add them to your delivery packs.
Materials provided by you
- Baking parchment
- Fine paint brush
- Nail file/fine sandpaper
- Strong glue (suitable for fixing the earring post to the clay)
- (Optional) plastic rolling pin, clay modelling materials or any kitchen implements you think may be useful
- Use of your oven (to bake the clay - sorry this is the one thing I can’t deliver!)
The earrings will need to be baked in your oven and then have a few layers of mod podge applied to them, so it is unlikely we will be able to finish making them in one meeting. However, we will aim to get your earrings ready for the oven by the end of the session and leave you with enough instructions to complete them in your own time.
Please send pics to the Craft Group Forum on the Maple Village app! As always, Pinterest is a brilliant source of inspiration and feel free to mash the design up your own way and share any ideas on the Craft Group Forum.
All members welcome and please feel free to bring along your own projects and join us for a natter if you prefer.
