I hope we have more gourdings this time, and that we can welcome a few new ones to our group. The techniques we will do are Air Dry Clay Faces on Spoons, and something fallish. If you have something fallish to bring and share, or you can bring along something that you have been wanted to get to or have already started. For Lee and Christine, bring the supplies for the Open Coiling done on a cannon ball gourd. If you are coming let me know and I will resend the supply list, and hopefully Tammy can teach you two together on that rimming technique.
Supplies for the Clay Faces on Spoons.
Spoons, any kind will do, leave as is or spray paint with rust-0-leum paint. I used aged copper, and Carrie used metallic bronze, both look good. I also drilled a hole in the top of the handle to hang, but you don't have to. I am also going to bend the handle on some to make them into shelf sitters. Use your imagination on this Air dry clay or Kwick Wood epoxy. I buy mine at Menards.
Beads for eyes and mouth
Paint: Black to paint faces if you wan.
orange for nose
Antiquing paint to make them look old.
Please let me know ASAP me if you are coming or NOT so I have an idea of how many gourders we will have.
