Meeting for January 2020 – Bottles of Hope

Our next guild meeting will be Saturday, January 11, 2020 from 1:30-4:30 p.m. at Betty Bolerjack’s home:  6712 Randi Road, Oklahoma City

This month we will be making Bottles of Hope as a group.  Bring whatever embellishments you need to make as many bottles as we can for donation.  We will have several sizes of bottles to cover or you can bring your own.

What to bring:

Work surface

Pasta machine or acrylic roller

Tissue Blade

Favorite tools

Plus anything to give your bottle curb appeal to possible recipients

Texture sheets or silk screen

Molds

Old canes

Mica powders

Paints or inks

Sequins, rhinestones, cubic zirconia

And lots of imagination.

Any clay and any colors you prefer. You can use the sizes below to determine amount needed to cover the bottles we have plus an extra amount for a top.

A sheet rolled to the #3 setting on an Atlas Pasta Machine

or 5 playing cards thick is usually a good thickness to work with.
