April 11, 2009 Faux Stone And 'Starry Night' Techniques

Faux GraniteApril Meeting: Faux Stone and “Starry Night ” Techniques

Hello Clayers! Then next meeting will be Saturday April 11th, 2009, 1-4p.m., at the Hobby Lobby in Norman (2417 W. Main, Norman, OK). Jane Linn will be teaching us 2 unusual and beautiful techniques, a faux stone technique that actually looks like real granite, and a Donna Kato “Starry Night” technique, which looks like Vincent van Gogh’s lovely painting. We are in for a real treat! Thanks Jane!

This month we will be having our swap. The theme is “blue” so everybody remember to bring something blue to swap. Also, if you have a suggestion for a new book for our library, bring that along too.
