August Topic – Scrap Clay Veneers with Nancy

Nancy will demonstrate a different way to use up scrap clay to make veneers and how she made the tiles for the lovely bracelets shown above.

If you’d like to play along bring the following in addition to your clay kit:

  • Scrap clay in two or more  colors
  • Pasta machine
  • Roller
  • Blade (optional – various cutting tools like cookie cutters)
  • Skewer
  • Pointer tool & a slightly larger diameter pointer*
  • Water
  • Jewelry findings (optional)

*The holes may shrink after baking so make them a little larger if you are making jewelry depending on your stringing material.  Many of the holes I made needed to be ‘worked’ with a boring tool after baking.
