Painting With Silicone,
A Hands-On Demonstration
by Kurt Staven
Our program for September will be a unique hands-on demonstration of painting with Silicone, by Kurt Staven. Silicone is an amazing non-toxic substance that can be used to paint foam or any other surface, but can also be used as an adhesive, a sealant, and many other things. This is a great chance to see what it does, and actually try it out. There will also be Show and Tell, if you would like to bring in a new puppet or projects. Also a potluck dinner during the break, so please bring something to share. We will also talk about the upcoming puppetry festivals and our summer meeting. Hope to see you there!
