I'm stitching the facing on Bad Hair Day - about halfway done and am taking a break. Who can sew for that long?? Then there will be the infamous sleeve and label to do. But not tonight. Becky H asked: I'm curious where you bought the soy wax and the gelatin in quantity? You can google soy wax and find several sources on the web, but I ordered mine from a place called Gelluminations. As for the gelatin -- I just got 6 cannisters of the stuff from Great Lakes Gelatin. That's their minimum order and trust me, unless you are doing a TON of gelatin plate printing, you do not need 6 cans. I teach it, so it is easier for me to take a can with me in case somebody forgets theirs. In fact, I am taking a can of gelatin with me to England next month. I am doing a 'play day' with a group of talented textile artists in London and we will need it. When I was there last year, we could not find powdered gelatine in the market so had to make do with agar-agar or some such thing, if I remember correctly. My non-working clock is still stuck at 8:03 but my watch says 11:30 pm, so off to get my beauty sleep. I hope.
