Hi All!!! I hope this message finds everyone healthy and happy...

Just a reminder that our next meeting is this Tuesday (May 18th), 6:30pm
at the San Diego Lapidary Society. We will be learning how to carve our
own texture plates/stamps. If you have not had a chance to order the
material, I am bringing extra mats that you can purchase. They are
$2.12 each if you are interested. Venetia also recommended that you
come prepared with a pattern (sharpie marker seems to be the best) so we
can carve at the meeting.

I also wanted to try and get an idea of the number and kind of samples
of your work that you want to add to the display for this years fair
display. I think it's really important that everyone in the group be
represented - even if you only have one piece completed!!! If you could
let me know how much you are displaying as soon as possible, I would be
very grateful.

See ya Tuesday!!

May 18th Meeting

Hi Everyone!

May Meeting – Our next meeting is May 18th at the San Diego Lapidary Society and will start at 6:30pm. Venetia is going to demonstrate carving our own stamps/texture plates. She suggested purchasing Carving Sheet from Art Clay World (stock #F043) for this purpose and drawing out a design in Sharpie marker. You’ll also need to bring carving tools. I’ll have some extras if you need to borrow.

Future Meetings – The June meeting will be a play date and start at 5:30pm for those who can come early. For July we need demo ideas! Ideas previously mentioned included soldering on PMC, Keumbo, proper syringe use, etc. If there are lots of people on vacation we could also take a break for July and/or August. We can discuss this more at the meeting as well.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.

See ya on the 18th!!!
