HI All,
Oh well! I was just joking about the suction boards. Should have
put in ;-)!! My work has overglaze washes so nothing can touch
once they are glazed, ie side slats on the boards. My solution
was to design my new studio so I can roll wheeled racks
everywhere. No real need to carry boards any more(USED to need
suction boards: waited 25 years for the perfect studio). I was
just trying to get some new ideas for FANTASY TOOLS.
Hmmm what else: oil lamp wick that comes cut to length with
one rigid end, making it easy to stick through the hole of the
button thingy. Now I really do NEED these!!
Take Care
