Kit list - stuff you'll need to do the bangle-making workshop / demo.
Learn how to make a polymer bangle, including creating the base, making a simple millefiori cane, and putting the two together. If you already have a square or rectangular cane you'd like to use, bring that!
You will need:
Two colours and white - will be used to make the design on the surface of your bangle.
Scrap clay can be used to make the bangle inner, or choose one of your main colours if you prefer. You'll need enough to make two nine inch belts or straps of clay - approx 1 inch wide - on a thickish setting of your pasta machine.
Metal cookie cutter that just fits over your hand. As a guide, most people need one that measures 6 or 6.5cm in diameter.
Sharp flexible blade.
Liquid clay or bake 'n' bond (if you don't have any, you can get by without it)
Pasta machine, roller and worksurface.
Cornflour 'pounce' if you've got one.
Greaseproof or layout paper
