Member Benefits Program
Member Benefits Program
Our membership appreciation program awards prizes to randomly selected members that join or renew their membership during a given quarter.
Polyform has generously extended our quarterly membership award prizes for 2019. The second quarter prize was randomly selected from our new and renewing members during that time period.
Meet our 2019 second quarter winner, Leigh Ross:
Leigh is well known for owning and operating the Polymer Clay Central website and forum. Her polymer work has been featured in the PolymerClay 2000 Calendar. Her polymer clay techniques and lessons are available at Polymer Clay Central. She has merged her two favorite mediums, polymer clay and silver into her jewelry pieces, and states on her Facebook page: “I love to make things with Polymer Clay and Sterling Silver along with a terrible obsession with Beads.”

Meet our 2019 first quarter winner, Lyn Tremblay: Lyn has been working with polymer clay for about 12 years, but she says it took her 2 or 3 years to realize its value. When she began, she had been covering up the polymer, using it as a base to create assemblage pieces, embedding bits of old jewelry and found treasures into the polymer. Eventually, she began to discover the versatility of the polymer on its own. Lyn says that the more polymer clay she exposed, the more she fell in love with it. Lyn adds, "While I have benefited from many of the techniques so willingly shared by members of the polymer clay community over the years, every time I settle into my studio for a play session I look forward to what new discoveries might emerge. My friends laugh when I say I am waiting for the clay to speak to me...and it does! I do enjoy squishing, rubbing and scratching to create more rustic pieces. I will leave canework, sanding and polishing to others.”
Examples of Lyn's Work
The new year has brought many positive changes for the benefits offered to IPCA members. Starting with second quarter 2018, all new and renewing members will be entered in a polymer prize pack drawing, generously sponsored by Polyform Products.
