Fun With Flakes

Come experiment with the iridescent flakes that no one really knows what to do with. We will learn how to make earrings and/or pendants as well as other items as time permits.

Materials list

typical stuff (pasta machine, clay, blades, roller, liquid clay, etc)
Grummer or other flakes (Michaels has them in their paper making section, use the 40% off coupon), one bag is plenty and people can easily share a bag
Optional stuff:
-gold or silver leaf, Jones Tones foils, and other embellishments
-Pinata or other inks (I have about 10 colours that I'm willing to share)
-stamp ink pads
-small containers or storage sacks to store flakes in
-small tiles
-memory glass
-pearlex or other powders
-if you want to make earrings you'll need some round nose pliers. I will have my own with me for sharing.

I will have a small supply kit for everyone for other items such as earring findings and brooch backs. Cost will likely be $2 with proceeds to charity.
Here are a few pictures of what you can accomplish.


  1. What is memory glass?
    I am stumped here!

  2. Memory Glass is the commercial name from Ranger applied to microscope slides or other thin sheets of glass. You can buy it at Michaels, scrap-booking stores or through Shades of Clay. Do a search for Memory Glass (ignore the cremation sites) and you should find it easily enough.

    Glass gives a nice finish to some of the pieces but it's not necessary.
