Pigments Powders for applying to finished pieces
Toaster oven ( I have a "demoted" one I use just for polymer, you can sometimes find them at yard sales ,second hand stores too)
Clay roller or something like a small rolling pin to roll out clay
Deck of cards ( we will use this for the thickness of the clay)
Wax paper
 Several  pieces of card stock

Acrylic Paints
Glitter glue
Glass beads- size 6 or 11
Assorted "jewels" and misc jewelry items to imbed in clay
Weldbond Adhesive ( I get mine at Michaels)
Polymer sealer 

Optional- shaped cut outs( squares)
Shaping tools for the clay

I have decided to start the workshop on the 7th as I only have several people signed up now.. so  Im hoping to get some more people signed up by then for the workshop.
Thanks for joining us!!

On the day the workshop begins I will be e-mailing you all a password to use on this page where the  links are posted to have access to the workshop videos. You will all be able to view at your own pace and have 1 year to do so.
I hope you have a fabulous creative adventure with this new online workshop!

**Workshop Is Now Open!!**

You can access the videos through these links . The password is being sent to you in your e-mail. I hope you enjoy week 1 and be creatively CRAZY!! Have fun!!
 Also I will be moving the camera so you can get some better views of the up close detail work on the tiles.. With some of the applications of the pigments powders even though I was just brushing them on, the angle wasn't conducive to seeing me do it.
