Back to the DRY HEAT
On another note, now I know how those long distance truckers feel! We came back from Seattle by way of Twin Falls, ID. One long day drive to there and then a fairly long drive again to Las Vegas. We got home on Wednesday and then Thursday saw me back on the road to deliver the chair for the Design in Wood show in Del Mar. Did that on in one day - 652 miles. The opening day of the show is next Friday so we plan to be there for that. After spending two weeks in the rainy Northwest, coming back to 108+ degree Las Vegas was a change. I was sanding in the shop and noticed that the gesso, which once was perfectly smooth, had these weird, wrinkly bumps on it. Turns out it was the sweat on my hands and face dripping down and ruining my sanding work! Using my upstairs bathroom turned humid gilding room for this frame to (hopefully) eliminate the static problem I had on the Ali frame. Will probably start to gild either tomorrow afternoon or Monday. Waiting for a reply on a job I recently bid for a TV lift cabinet.
