In Amsterdam, by luck, I met Lino Hellings. She advised me to keep my work diary on-line, exposing my work methods rather than protecting them, risking the humiliation involved in failure. So:celebrate error. In my heart I knew this to be a good idea. My brain, horrified, fortunately tells me it will be too boring for anyone to read.

Yesterday morning before the days' heat put out one of my papier-mache evaporators... here it is, sitting in a little pool of water. Happy enough. I had thought it would take days to work but this morning lifted it to remove snail...
and it sloshed! Water inside.
I sucked some out - tasted of varnish. Need a stop of some sort to undo to empty. But it works and I'm quietly jubilant.
Need to find a vacuum former to make the plastic version. Or preferably someone to do all that.
