May Blueprints

May 2013
Next Meeting: Tuesday, May 28th, 6:30pm
Our sympathy to Bab's computer, which is still direly ill.  Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.
The May meeting will be at Arline Lowenthal's house.  Arline writes:  Resin may be a doll makers best friend...

On the 28th of May, y'all come and find out how you can make a mold and complete a resin replicate of same mold in under an hour...way under!!
If we have time, we will be able to paint, drill, and more to this newly
molded, unsuspecting item!
Let's work small. Please bring a small item with which we can mold, then put to the test.
Just so you won't go home with a high a level of frustration, I will have some of the products that we will be transforming, using our own type of alchemy, for you to purchase at a great price.
There is only one stipulation... you must have
I'll make the beverages, like coffee, tea, etc.
You may bring a little something to go with it.
NOT A LOT!! You'll only have to take home what is not consumed!
I am OK with pulling this program out of my bag of tricks, I want everyone to have a fab time, as we always do. By now most of you know how to get here, but if draw a blank, call and we will email directions.
We'll be leaving the light on... see you soon,
Arline Lowenthal
(Oh by the way we’ll be doing a few door prizes at our meeting!)
