Mile High Polymer Clay Guild NewsletterSummer 2010www.mhpcg.orgPeg says Clare’s two cents worth Now Spring just started and already theSummer Solstice has come and gone?That‟s just wrong! Gary and I have movedto Longmont where we‟re very happy withour „new‟ apartment & enjoying being closerto friends and business.I‟m looking forward to being more involvedwith the guild this summer as “SummerPresident” or “Temporary Peg”. I have always benefited from the positive energyand encouragement from this group & amhappy to give back. We have a great groupof leaders and members who give freely oftheir time and knowledge. Be sure and remember to thank them.Our May workshop with Lynne AnneSchwarzenberg was wonderful. She is avery generous instructor and all of us whowere fortunate to be there learned tips andtricks that will save us loads of time &clay. Our Retreat was great again thisyear. It just gets better and better,doesn‟t it? Be sure to check out the manypictures on our guild Facebook page.I‟m off for the summer. Our own dearClare Pramuk will be stepping in for mewhile she‟s available. You be nice to her!Don‟t make me send her my whistle and bullhorn! It does warm my heart to watch youall visiting and sharing with each otherevery month. Just let Clare get a word inhere and there so that you‟re informedabout what‟s going on in the group.I‟ll see you all in the Fall, if not sooner.Happy Claying!PegIf you don‟t know me well, I‟ve been working with polymer clay for at least 5 years &had my first class with Kathleen Dustin theSpring of 2006. This was actually before Imoved to Colorado from Texas. I don‟treally know when I started but I can‟timagine not having polymer clay in my life.I don‟t have my own style, at least not yet,and enjoy exploring the many techniquesthat are out there. I find that reading abook or attending a demonstration, class orworkshop on something I already know willalways give me some unexpected nugget ofinformation that expands my knowledge.I just returned from a week in northernNew Mexico in the area where GeorgiaO‟Keefe completed many of her masterpieces. It was a very spiritual week for meso expect to see some „inspired‟ pieces coming from my direction. I justhave to hold onto that inspiration & get my studiocleaned up!Namaste,Clare

Ex[oring the Rainbow with Tina HoldmanMountain Cool ColorsThis is half a collection of cool colors that willnicely fill out your color sample collection. Theyare designed to go with the Mountain Cool Water Collection of recipes that will be publisheddown the road if they have not been publishedthus far. I would love to say that these collections were the result of looking at my samplecollection and realizing that a few more cool colors were needed to nicely plump out those partsthat were thin but alas, I have to admit that itwas primarily self interest that drove me. Yes,my guild sisters and occasional brother, I havestrayed from the field and have cheated withanother craft form.Oh please, I know you have some, ur, side interests as well. Felting, quilting, beading and yes,an occasional weaver like my own bad self areout there. While I cannot say that I am aprolific weaver, I will dust off my loom &warp something on once in a great while. Andit has led, to my defense, to not one, but twolovely collections of greens, blues & purples.I was at the weaving store & started puttingtogether a pile of cone & ball yarn to match amixed yarn of blues & purples and before Iknew it, I was looking at a pile of absolutelydelicious colors. I got a bit of each to warpinto a scarf. Or two or three. The clay colors will probably go into a project before Iactually get to making the scarf, but there itis, I am most faithful to clay in the end ofthings.Premo colors you will need to mix this collection are: Turquoise, Ecru, White, Cobalt,Green, Sea Green, Ultramarine Blue, Purple and Black.#1 Light Bluish Green4 parts Premo Turquoise3 parts Premo Ecru1 part Premo White#3 Medium Dark GreenishBlue3 parts Cobalt Blue1 part Premo Sea Green1/2 part Premo White#5 Navy Blue2 parts Premo Ultramarine1 part Premo Cobalt Blue1/4 part Premo Black#4 Medium Dark Blue1 parts Premo Turqoise1 part Premo Ultramarine#6 Dark Luscious Purple2 parts Premo Ultramarine1 part Premo Purple#2 Medium Clean Green2 parts Premo Turquoise2 parts Premo Cobalt1 parts Premo Green#7 Bonus—Medium BluePurple2 parts Premo Purple1 part Premo Turquoise1 part Premo Cobalt1 part Premo White

All details for constructing the surface design areincluded in the video & several works are shown to illustrate possibilities for its use. A printedcard is also included for visual and printed reference. The video is the first in a series gearedtoward an audience that is already familiar with working in polymer clay. It does not include basicconditioning and curing details. Furture segments are being filmed that include general introduction to working with polymer clay, projects with polymer clay surface design and additional specific techniques.Poly Paste RevisitedBrooch by D. KatoKato Poly Paste is an inexpensive new product that takes the frustration out of attaching two odd-shaped surfaces. Although liquidclay could be used for this purpose, Poly Paste best assures that thepieces stay in place before and during baking, not slipping as liquidclay often does. It’s especially helpful when adding trim to a prebaked piece. Did you know Poly Paste can be colored using oil paintsor alcohol inks? Tip: be sure to stir the paste well to activate andthin it a bit. It can be applied with a toothpick or small flat brush.

New Learning Opportunitieswww.Craftedu.comDonna Kato has expanded her reputation as an artistic innovator by launching,an exciting and varied collection of on-line classes.

What’s new?Valerie Aharoni posted pictures ofher more elaborately embellished pingpong ball beads and her ion-sources.htmlPing Pong Ball Beads!Several years ago the Metro Detroit PC Guild had a“bodacious bead” swap & our former MHPCG presidentDiane Luftig, then a member of the Detroit group,showed us her strand of unusual and large creations.She said one difficulty was finding something on whichto form the beads, since the weight of solid beads wasa problem. More recently, my Yahoo group sharedideas for making beads on ping pong balls. The questions of safety when heating plastic was discussed &Garie Sim, a polymer artist in Singapore, provided thefollowing information: There are two kinds of pingpong balls : a) Celluloid , which is based on cellulosenitrate and b) PVC which is a thermo plastic polymer.To determine which type, cut open the ping pong ball.Celluloid balls have a plastic membrane that is verythin & you’ll get a strong plastic glue smell. The PVCballs have thicker membranes. Although you can useeither, the Celluloid balls distort during baking and ifnot vented properly before covering with clay may explode! For safety reasons, the PVC balls are best!To create the bead, poke holes in opposite sides of aPVC ball and cover with a sheet of #3 or #4 clay. Thecovering must be sealedtightly to protect ball frommelting.Decorate & bake followingmanufacturer’s directions.Garie works with children &has used the forms for making animals as well as nponballs.htmA New Look for Buna CordAre you weary of the regulation black buna cord? Try sponging on Lumiere acrylic paint for a metallic finish that better coordinates with your polymer pendants. Let the paint dry and heat set itin the oven about 5 minutes. You can mix colors for an interesting effect. Since Lumiere was developed as a fabric paint, it stretches with the buna, thus bonding permanently. California artistDottie McMillan orders her buna from Cabela’s. It’s actually duck decoy cord which comes in 500ft. roll for 14.99. Tina G. reports it can purchased locally at Bass Pro.
