I use a blender to mix my urea water and thickner.
3 strengths of thickener from sodium alginate (seaweed derivative)
Since my fabrics have been sitting for awhile, I decided to scour them again to remove dust,...a combination of various pfd (preferred for dyeing) silks and cottons. The silks are washing as I type.
This past week I was at the studio and gallery for a combined total of 19 hours. On Saturday I did a demo for my ART Going Postal(c) postcards while gallery sitting. The visitors were few but I enjoyed the company and conversation of fellow artist Dennis Shaffner.
Poetic touch stones have filled by day...started last night with Proclamations of Forgiveness by Estella Majozo. This morning Cherryl Floyd-Miller shared the link to this poem by Naomi Shihab Nye. And the radio show On Being posted this poem on their FB status and I ended up listening to the podcast. I'm still feeling strong and joyous...gonna ride this vibe as far as I can! Peace!
