A pasta-making machine is a popular multi-purpose tool for polymer clay artists. It is used to create sheets of uniform thickness, to mix colors or created variegated sheets, and to condition (soften) the clay.

The Art Junction had two candy cane-making opportunities in December.

We held a candy cane-making workshop at the North Fairfield United Methodist Church’s community night.

DSCN0372

We also had a family art day at the Art Junction where families could come and create candy canes.

DSCN0377

The candy canes were made out of a polymer clay that goes by the brand name of Sculpey and comes in many colors.

It is a fun material to use that is easily baked in an oven or a toaster oven.

This is a great project for kids of all ages.  It’s fun to mix colors, and it incorporates basic clay skills for everyone to learn.

Everyone had fun as we enjoyed a large attendance at both events.  Maybe you can join us next year for this annual event at the Art Junction.

Polymer clay is a type of hardenable modeling clay based on the polymer polyvinyl chloride (PVC). It typically contains no clay minerals, but like mineral clay a liquid is added to dry particles until it achieves gel-like working properties, and similarly, the part is put into an oven to harden, hence its colloquial designation as clay.

Bead Day


 

On Saturday, November 3, the Art Junction held its first bead workshop.

Participants explored creating clay beads from Sculpey polymer clay.

Exploring was the name of the day as everyone discovered colors and mixing techniques as well as different types of beads to create.

For most of the participants this was a first experience with creating clay beads; everyone learned new techniques and everyone was surprised by how quickly two hours passed for the workshop.

Here are some examples of the beads created on Bead Day.
