Please ask Doug if he needs any help with this project.

____________________________________________________________________________ COMING UP:

SEPTEMBER PROGRAM: The project for September is painting an ornament.  The purpose is to emphasize painting so that our work still looks like wood and not ceramic or plastic.  We will be diluting the paint and painting in layers.

Please bring a pencil and carving knife.  The following will also be used: sand paper some coarse and some fine, a small U gouge 1/8” # 12, micro tool works well for this. Synthetic brushes, several ¼ to ½ in width both round and flat, small bottle for adding drops of water to paint (some of you received these a few years ago in a painting class}.  Bring if you have, if you don’t have, there will be ones you can borrow.

Blank, paint and other supplies will be provided. This is not brain surgery, we will have fun and leave more confident!

OCTOBER PROGRAM: Learning to burn fur on your carved animal – Gina Gipson.  Bring your burning tool.  Our club has one to lend.

NOVEMBER PROGRAM: Double Holiday Elf – Lynn Petkas

DECEMBER PROGRAM: Holiday Dinner

REMINDER: The Atlanta Woodcarvers Club meeting: September 13, 2016 – 6:30-8:30pm
