As many of you saw on our live Twitter feed from the studio – see right, “It’s Happening Right Now …” – our itinerant expert assistant joined us last week from the Isle of Arran (just off the west coast of Scotland).
The Journalist Rings
Bless her, she’d been asked to write an article for next February’s Homes & Gardens (and she’d rung us five months early because she knew how busy we get …):
“I’m writing about buying and using stained glass and I’ve been looking at your website with great interest …
(What a lovely journalist, I thought.)
… I need to find out about the various options available to buy, and also who can restore them …
… Can you help me please?”
The light was heavenly here the other day – just as David was working on a water-colour design in our stained glass Studio #2 …
Sue Sills wrote and asked us about mixing glass paint with white vinegar:
I have only used water and gum for mixing tracing paint so far.
But I was recently told that you can use white vinegar instead of water and that it stopped the paint from drying out so quickly, thus making it better for tracing lines.
Do you know if this is so?
