These are my "uglies" out on the line waiting for them to dry from their alum soak before dipping them into the marbling size.
This is one of the "uglies" already covered with a stripey pattern. This was the first dip of the day which is always the worse for some reason, although this one was okay for me.
This is George in his usual position sitting next to Warren with his two favorite toys -- his ball run around and a cheap little stick that has a string and feather thing attached. Cheney has nothing but distain for toys and much prefers the little plastic rims that come with bottle caps on my gallon water bottles. He also adores rubber bands like his distant cousin, Dewey the Library Cat -- we finally dried up his source of rubber bands after finding him with them all the time. He wouldn't tell us where he was getting them from but we tracked it down to my basement craft supplies!
