Life interfered so I never got to Comcast this morning; it'll have to wait for a couple of days. Meantime, the culprit seems to be my blogspot url, so I tiny'd it and it seems to be working better...at least temporarily. Spent today at the V.A. with Marty, filling out more forms and then went to visit Molly who still has shingles and will not be able to attend her great- grandson David's Communion tomorrow. I did print for about 3 minutes tonight. Motivated by curiosity about Gerrie Congdon's experiment and all the comments on the Complex Cloth list about what to use for a squeegee with Thermofax screens, I did my own test. I took a Bondo and two new scraper/spreader thingies that I think are so great that I bought 25 of each size: a 4" and a 6"(Carload Charlie, my grandfather, would be proud of me).The bondo was the first print and was slightly lighter than the other ones, but that is probably because the first pull is always different. . Here is the third one, done with the 6". Nice, huh? I just KNEW this would be a good tool. The 4" is good, too. I also like the tree, which I shot recently, I forget where. It is very late. I had better get to bed so I don't sleep through watching 40 kids take communion tomorrow afternoon. That would just not do.
