April 28 – 2 - 5 pm
Program: Sutton Slice technique.
This technique was created by Pete Sutton and is a method of pressing clay into the valley recessed areas of a stamp & trimming off any excess clay above the stamp’s ridges with a sharp flexible clay blade, and then carefully applying the clay filled recesses to a background sheet of clay. Many different looks can be achieved with this technique by factoring in the positive and negative (high & low) areas of a stamp and selecting contrasting clay colors accordingly to give your design impact.
In one of the samples shown (the oval shapes pictured in gold and turquoise) we’ll
discuss the use of mica or metallic clay in the Sutton Slice technique with pointers for their particular application, and then discuss how to complete an image so that it is smooth without hills or valleys if desired.
After the Sutton Slice demo Connie will also do a brief demonstration on sanding and buffing as requested by several newer members not already familiar with it and for any others that may want to participate.
