I was hoping you'd offer. Probably not today, as Michael's at work during the day & I'm working on t-shirts and other arrangements, and tonight we have the first official meetup. We'll be organizing another 'pult work session very soon, though. (There's all that extra beer, y'know.) :)

i've got a meeting tomorrow eve that i'll try to be otu of by 730. i picked up white primer for the hands, and a cream and taupey color satin finish that blended should be decent for the hands. there was a nic sandstone finish, but it'd show dirt like mad.

grey primer on the spoon and i grabbed a silver that hopefully looks ok for the spoon.

i have scenic brushes, but they're probably a little gross for what you'll want to do, and i'm not keen on them getting non-scenic paint on them. mucks with the fibers.

i'm headed out of the office about 6, to be home abtou 615, theo may be a bit earlier, i'm all for ordering an afghan pizza, lots of painting some bondoing/sanding.

we'll need something to paint fingernails on the hands, and maybe some non frozen grey primer for the spoon.

I'll be heading north to Michael's garage shortly. I'm finishing up some laundry & other preparations now.

I will be bringing some T-shirt iron-on supplies and a few pre-printed logos (Pi Pie and Spoonapult).
If you are volunteering tomorrow at Make:Day, and don't have a T-shirt yet, please bring one along this evening.
All-cotton knit is best. Clean much preferred. ;)
