thank you Sharri
the pieces that i do seal with poly are not under glass ,
but on room dividing screens made of wood or paper like "soji" screens
others that will be framed-i do not seal
i have noticed that the matte medium collages sometimes do start to
"peel-up"
or loosen up at a later time
whereas the spray stuff doesnt
but the sealing seems to prevent this
and i advise clients to reseal it once a year
the paper buckles or wrinkles when becoming wet with the poly
but it dries out flat and tight

Well we'll see if the third time is the charm - I hope this comes through on the list, it's late but hopefully still relevant...

Hi Jason,
Well you certainly aren't the first to have this problem - William Morris experienced it with his edition of the Kelmscott Chaucer.
He was using an unmodified ink that happened to have a high oil content. It's very unlikely that blotting the prints will remove
enough oil to remove the stain, the oil will have become embedded in the fibrillated fibre structure of the paper and it would take enormous
pressure (the theoretical kinds) to squeeze it out, or it would take some form of chemical cleaning to dissolve it away. The Kelmscott pages
certainly weren't as large as yours but Morris's solution might work, if you are printing in black ink on high quality paper anyway...
He sun bleached them.
Find a sunny spot out of the weather and lay them out for a couple of hours, checking at intervals to see what is happening. It's not something
I would normally recommend - there are several risks doing this, one of which is that if your paper contains a lignin component, that is part
sulphite, or tree, pulp it may darken itself - but for pure cellulose fibres (like cotton and linen) it does work and if you are desperate and
the ink isn't fugitive it may be worth a test.
Good luck!

Lee

The creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act. (Marcel Duchamp)

Thanks for this tip, Lee. It is something I have stored away in my wee pea brain for future reference, but which I hope I never have to use.

Not too long ago someone posted something about their workbench. If I remember right, I went to their website and there was a picture of it.....it
might have been white?
Anyway, I was impressed by it and this weekend my husband is going to build me one and I wanted to show him the picture but I can't find it.
Please.............anyone?

Hello Bareners,

Wanted to let you know that my prints are being shown at the Cullom
Gallery in Seattle from tonight through 11/1. Cullom Gallery is a
small gallery on the mezzanine of Davidson Galleries in Pioneer
Square. I hope you'll visit the gallery if you're in the area. You
can get all the time and place details, and also see the show online,
at the gallery's web site:

http://www.cullomgallery.com

I'll be in Seattle in October for the First Thursday Art Walk 10/2
and I'll be giving an artist's talk the following Saturday 10/4 at
2:00 pm. I'd love to meet some west coast Bareners in person!

best to all,

Annie B

Donít know if you are talking about a art drawing table or a carving
bench.

I have designed a carving bench - hori dai - that is a back saver.
You can find the info.... size and full instruction about how to build
it at......

If you have a problem or need help.... you know what to do.... (

Annie, your prints on the website are stunning. I've tried to do
Japanese style prints but so far no luck. But you make it look so
effortless (which I know it's not). Best of luck with your show!

Send Message: To this poster

Hello Friends.

Just a friendly reminder here of "the facts, ma'am, nothing but the facts".
You can brush up on the details at the following BAREN webpage: Exchange
Information Page ...

Please, would you email back so that I know you have rec'd this?†
(participant list below*). Some are mystery email addy's for me, so letting me know WHO
you are would be nice.

Oct 1st. (drop out deadline). Please let me know as soon as possible, lest
the dread official penalty be imposed. Seriously now, friends, do let me know
asap in consideration for the substitute's convenience.

Nov 1st. arrival at AlbaStudios & Gallery, 4219 Martin Luther King Jr Way,
Oakland, CA. 94609-2321
I'll really appreciate your being on time as my mail carrier doesn't ring my
bell, only leaves a slip. I listen for the mail to drop thru the doorslot. The
less traipsing to the PO during the preXmas rush would be very appreciated.
FedEX & UPS are better mannered.

Postage Options:
a). send packaging (I can reuse yours, right?) with sufficient stamps to
cover the expense in an envelope with your name and address on it
or
b). send check/money order for domestic ($10.) or outside USA ($20), made out
to Benny Alba. Personal checks should clear before return mailing.†

REMEMBER to include an address label. And to put your name on your package.
I've taken in many major shows for an international printmaking group. If you
use a "pay to pack and ship" company, remember that they use their return addy,
not yours. It can be quite a mystery at times....

Speaking of mystery, I'm looking forward to the fun of opening your packages
and seeing fresh prints. Imagine your prints all spread out on a 5 x 15 ft
table for admiration. What fun.

Looking forward to seeing your art.. and sending you wonderful prints.
