I’m really trying to organize my workspace again. It seems as though I am forever in flux. I love that word flux. Flux is the stuff that you use when you solder copper tubing. It is a kind of grease, not really sure what it’s made of-maybe a petroleum product. Anyway i know this because i once apprenticed as a plumber. But completely forgot about that until I started to write this post. Soldering was my absolute favorite part of being a plumber’s apprentice.
flux: a substance used to remove oxides from and prevent further oxidation of fused metal, as in soldering or hot-dip coating.
Anyway I’m trying to organize and put everything away so I can get back to work and I see this gold twine on the floor and start wondering how I can use it in my next project.
twine metal molten flux = tie dye bound shibori = new quilt for my bed.
Funny how the brain works. Happy Father’s Day!
