Meeting Notes From Our Sept. 2021 Virtual Meetings

Sept. Monday 13th Meeting’s Demo Was Corny!

DEMO #1 Kasi Alhaus’ Extruder Ornamental Corn. Kasi showed us how to create ornamental corn ear canes using our extruders. This is a great way to use up ‘scrap’ clay because this type of grain comes in hundreds of different colors.

She was using her trusty green Makin’s extruder. She rolled out her scrap on the same setting on her pasta machine. Then used a 3/4″ round cutter to form lots of circles from the sheeted clay. She stacked the clay circles alternating colors into a neat round column that fit into the extruder.
