I am forever the recycler and saver from the trash heap if something looks promising for another use. Ron had a wonderful paint and stain rag that he was getting ready to use for a different color paint.
STOP I said as I snatched it from his hand. The dark stain had great texture and with a textile paint overlay it spoke Bittersweet to me. Bits of the paint rag that are left are in the photo.
Then I bought a carved India trivet that was broken. I bought it because of the honeycomb design and thought it would make a good stamp. Bingo! The bonus is the leaf shape that also stamped well. I sure wish there was more of that paint rag. I’ll have to keep my eyes open next time and think about shopping in his workroom more often.
