Kimberly is planning the following two demonstrations for the October meeting:
Turning a wall mirror
During this demonstration, you will learn how to turn a two-part wall mounted mirror. Using face plate turning techniques to turn the forms, you will learn how to transform and combine common techniques into something that is uncommon in format.
From Drab to Pizzazz: Milk Paint and Surface Embellishment
You keep hearing of Milk Paint over and over again but have no idea really what it is or how to begin using it, right? Kimberly will demystify Milk Paint. During the demonstration, you will learn how to properly mix, use, and explore the infinite possibilities of Milk Paint. Although Milk Paint is often associated with traditional furniture forms, the material can be used on practically any surface or format: metal, stretched canvas, bedroom walls, kitchen cabinets, toys, furniture… Your only limitation is your imagination. Milk Paint is incredibly durable, eco-friendly and comes in a delicious color palette. This demonstration will show you how to use Milk Paint and to explore the wide range of visual possibilities. The techniques learned can be translated to any number of other projects or formats.
