Greetings my fiends. Time to announce what days you're available in March.

Jay, don't forget you have homework this month, I'll need to know if that motor is salvageable on that deer, or if you need another. Also, is there any chance of grabbing some drier lint fom work in quantity?

I'm hoping that this coming meeting we can get some serious frame alterations done on the deer, and with any luck, attach the plastic mesh "skin" that I have. I have enough of the mesh for everyone. You'll be able to apply either latex, fur, or drier lint mache directly onto the mesh. Black Cat wants me to warn everyone, that going with latex skin for the whole project, is going to use LOTS of latex. We're planning on using latex only where absolutely necessary. Let me know if that sounds agreeable to everyone, or if we need to alter the agenda.

ALREADY????? You guys all just left and now you're planning on coming back AGAIN????? HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just kidding. As far as I know right now, we have a pretty open schedule for the month of March, although when Kenny gets home I'll double check with him. We can make it on St. Patricks Day....I'll throw some corned beef in the pot. I know, I know, Vlad dear doesn't like corned beef. Burgers on the grill? Just keep me posted.

I am SO GLAD to hear you guys are going to be working over some animated deer! just as an fyi....I used latex soaked cloth all over mine, and it didn't take nearly as much latex as I thought it would. (but then again, that was just where there was exposed flesh....everything else was patched in with fur.
Please post up some in progress pix! I'd love to see what you come up with!

Um...Hon......I realize that burning all that foam and sniffing all that latex may have gotten to your brain, but we've only gotten together THREE times so far. How can this be the FIFTH!!!! Did I miss something? See what we're dealing with here folks? Scarey part is that HE is the one giving all the tutorials!!! :eek: If we ever start working with welding tools or fire, all you nice haunters will be put on standby in case Vlad dear decides that we need to do this INSIDE!

If anyone from the group has any extra duct tape and wire please bring it to the next meeting in March. We'll need it for the alterations on the reindeer. Pattie your incharge of the bandaids. I can see lots of cuts and scraps with the next meeting. Those wire reindeer are gonna be tuff to work with. I already cut myself twice on the reindeer frame and I haven't even started altering it other than taking off the light.

St. Patty's day sounds like a fun day for a Make and Take.
