Blue Glue Take 2

This is a picture from about two months ago. It features the same blue glue technique as described in the October blog entry. I found that I needed to enhance the resist effect on all of the pieces that I tie-dyed for the baby but one. In this case I outlined the trees drawn in the resist with permanent marker (Pigma Micron.) The shirt is wearing well. As I mentioned before, I do not recommend blue glue resist on knit fabrics, as it is so hard to get out. If anyone has a glue removal tip for me, please post it to the comments.

Been gone a long time

Since arriving in South Africa and settling in, we had a lightening storm that destroyed my computer. The lightening came in through the phone line of the modem. My computer is protected by a powersurge protector and all electrical items not connected to the phoneline survived the storm. I plan on updating the blog more frequently, barring other catastrophies. The move, the baby and settling have been tough on my ability to do art but I am resolved to get back into it in 2011.

Hope you have a prosperous New Year!
