Hey, Fiber Art People
I have a question for you.
There is a show called Hidden Dreams coming up with an August submission date. I have the idea to do my pieces on nightmares and water. (Got a lot of experience with that one lately.)
When I washed those cut up capri jeans........I got upset because they curled rather than frayed like I desperately wanted them to do.
So I had to rethink the design ...... and I have it. But now I have to figure out how to keep them curled while I manipulate them to assemble the piece.
So....... question. Now that I like them again
What would you do to them to keep them intact? Click on the orange writing to read about them.
gel medium stuff? like golden GAC something or other?
So it is a good thing I started this early, huh?
In other news...........I bought another rain gauge, mine floated away somewhere. So far it has rained 1/2 inch on Tuesday and 1/4 inch on Wednesday. Today it is clean and sunny and so is the rain gauge.
And JOY OF JOYS.........
Guess what came home yesterday? The Husqvarna!
It has a weird (really weird) squeak. When the shaft moves slowly, it squeaks. I feel like I want to slap some oil on it. Is that a good thing to do?
He had to cut my Tattoo open to get the back off, I guess.
It works well, except for that annoying squeak.......
