Hi!
Thanks for the comment on my blog. About the transfer paints, I, too, often use brown paper. Mostly, however, I've been using this roll of white paper that I just happened to have. I've made my own paint using dispere dyes from ProChemical. It was cheap and easy. I made enough paint that it took over forty feet of this roll (which is 36" wide) to paint it all out. I've found that an old, metal iron...like from the 50s or 60s works best with the transfer paints. They just happen to be hotter.

I really liked looking at all your postcards, especially the ones with the squares. They are all so different...perhaps mirroring your moods?

I've been to Louisville twice...to the EGA national convention and to the EGA school of advance studies for the most wonderful class I've ever taken. Valerie Campbell Harding came from Great Britain. It was fantastic. Actually, I learned to use my Bernina in that class (although one was suppose to be already beyond basic skills...it didn't matter...free-motion machining came very, very easily to me).

I am no longer a member of EGA...not "wild" enough for me...but I truly have fond memories from the experiences I had with this organization.

Are you a member?
Susan

Fiber postcards--what an orginal idea. And, these are beautiful. It's good that your work is adding texture and beauty to everyday life.

I'm presenting day two of Eric Maisel's "Van Gough Blues" blog book tour. Hope you'll have a chance to stop by and listen to our conversation on connection.
