Nov. 19, 2013 – Flat Lap Demonstration
Marley Beers and Kelly Six are going to demonstrate using a flat lap machine. This was recently introduced at a Beadcamp, and we all had so much fun uncovering the hidden layers of glass while grinding layered beads. But this machine can also be used to polish and straighten edges on fused glass too.
Feel free to bring one of your SMALL works (4 in square or less) to play with. Those who play, may get wet! — You might want to bring an apron, if you have one. We’ll have a set of safety goggles, but you can bring your own, too.
Gather all those glass tools, and gadgets gathering dust and bring them to the next meeting for a swap meet after our demonstration. Your junk might be someone’s treasure!
