Meet the Beetles!

March 15, 2023 Meetings 0

Not an English Invasion, but scarabs, a diverse order of insects and a recognizable symbol of Ancient Egypt.

For our April 1 meeting, Ellen will be doing a demo on how to make these attractive sculpted beetles make great pendants or beads.

Polymer Scarabs with Mica Powders by Ellen Bellenot


Bring some black clay, mica powders (eye shadows you no longer like work great, too), a bamboo skewer, needle tool or small diameter knitting needle to use as a sculpting tool. If you have some rubber stamps or texture plates in the theme, bring those too.

Looking Ahead to May

Cindy will be demoing polymer clay jewelry closures.
