Re: [BKARTS] Marbling with Starch size



Dear Betty,
You stated it correctly.  I read it wrong!  (Duh!)  I checked my "Ultimate
Marbling Handbook" by Diane Maurer-Mathison.  Besides carrageenan she also
mentions a methyl cellulose size...but no cornstarch size.

Dorothy has been away for a couple weeks and I don't know when she is due
home.  She and other family members are on a cross country train trip in
Canada.

Hand surgery must be terribly frustrating for someone who uses their hands
as much as you do. I have a whole bunch of scissor cutting ahead of me,
making Christmas cards.  Making an apple pie last week, I burned my thumb,
right where the scissors will sit.  Very frustrating!

Peggy
