  • Going dotty--thanks a lot, Kim!

    Needed a bed for my "furniture suite" and figured it was a good time to try out those fabric paints that I bought with a 50% off coupon at Michael's. I really meant to use them for a decorated cake box, but I haven't had a chance to get the thick maple I needed.

    So, here it is--the dotty decorated bed box!

            Glad you all like it--it's certainly different from my usual stuff.

            Kim's advice about using the paint was very helpful. The only thing I did differently was to use tiny parchment cake decorating bags to get a finer dot than the container's tip allowed. Those little bags are made from parchment triangles and can be used without metal tips--you just cut a tiny bit of the point off.

            Kim said to finish things off with a coat of lacquer after everything's dried up well, so I'll do that in a day or so. I gave it a coat of lacquer before I began, and that didn't seem to keep the paint from adhering well.

            And Gloria, how about dressing up some of your bows with dotted borders or just polka dot ribbons? I used to pipe icing dots and borders on gumpaste loops and tails. If I get a chance, I'll give it a try, unless you beat me to it!

                Twenty years in electronics retail and here is a quick dirty way to tell the difference:
                a fast blow will only have the wire element. Slow blow almost always has some extra structure that will be left behind after the fuse blows.
                Secondly, there is a series of three letter engraved on one...

                They look like David Spielmann's Designs to me. I will check my library this evening, but I bet you already that they are from one of his pattern books.

                Thanks all - you folks do wonders for my ego with your comments and importantly fire me up to keep trying new things

                Scott - once this Covid situation has passed I'll definitely be heading up to NC. I'm tentatively thinking late spring/early summer next year. I am not sure just what pointers...

                I found this information on fuses in general.

                Blowing type. Fast-blow fuses will blow as soon as the current reaches the fuse's amperage rating, while slow-blow fuses are designed to tolerate a large number of startup surges and modest short-term overloads without blowing.
