Thanks, you guys totally have me laughing this morning.

I know this is not as fun as playing chemist, but I scrub the glass with a damp rag with paint on it, then buff it with a clean rag. The paint never crawls. A Peter McGrain trick.

Happy New Year and may the demons find their own art supplies this year.

Laxative, that's a riot! I'll let Kathy tell you the dosage. In our workshop I always refer to it as "Kathy's Happy Medium". In case you don't know, propylene glycol can substitute for a "personal lubricant" if you're out of KY Jelly. You'll have to ask Deborah Coombs; she's the expert on that one.

All the coolest Singaporeans are using CleanClear to keep their paint from beading up:
