Cloth Covers used to cover the Challah or Jewish braided bread traditionaly used for Friday nights and other special nights.

We used the fabric pen
Blo Pens sets come in different
colors but only in plain colors for Fabric.
We had a stencil with religious objects we used with the blo pens.
We were surpised how dark and therefore how much paint we used on
the first few of them.
Child to Adult
Wash the cloth hankerchief. This takes out chemicals that can effect the paint. Iron if needed. Follow package instructions for the blow pens. Use lightly as the paint will run out if you are making a lot of cloths. After paint dries iron just the stencils to make them permanent. Accent with fabric glitter or other three dimensional paint.
We used single vases for the small table and a triple vase for the head table.
All of the vases were made with a thin layer of White Bulk Style Sculpey.
Three vases were fused together using clay wedges that
were then covered with canes.
We made 14 different vases using lots of blues.
We mixed the canes up on some and used all the same on others.
We used satin glaze with a little metallic gold powder mixed in.
One of the same vases with a Jewish Plastic stemed Star of David.
