You need to run the toaster through the dishwasher, sand some to give it some tooth, prime with
Painters Touch Black Primer. Then, basecoat with black (this makes it easier to correct any mistakes later). Put on the pattern (just flowers, you can add leaves and small flowers later. You will
need to undercoat all flowers with white so colors really show up. The rest we will do in class.
See you in January.
2016 Schedule of workshops and Paint-ins will be released after the Transitional Board meeting.
Get ready for a Painting Party!!! Sandi Strecker is Fun-Fun-Fun and adorable! You will LOVE

Invite your friends from other chapters! We will be paining in the BIG main hall so will have

Approximately 165 teddy bears were delivered to Meals on Wheels this week. It
was such a pleasure to be a part of this project. The people at Meals on Wheels
are so appreciative and delighted with what we do. Nedra Colter, the Manager,
told me she has one of each of our project for the last 20 years. That's awesome! We'll do it again next year because that's what Christmas is all about.
Thanks to all of you who painted the cute little bears.
