The paper gets curly from all that wet paint, and the iron isn’t being used for anything else anyway….
Odd story about this iron. It’s new and shiny and even has a teflon plate, but I didn’t buy it. Back a few months ago when I was messing with the mending (gasp!) and sewing, I was using my old iron as a helpful adjunct to sewing. I kept noticing this weird sticky stuff on the fabric or the ironing board cover. Turns out the feet in the heel plate were melting!
Upon writing to the Sunbeam people to ask whatthehell politely, they said:
- it appeared the product was not operating as designed. (!)
- they’d send me a new iron!
Which they did. Forthwith! Amazing customer service! No muss, no fuss, no telling me what an idiot consumer I was. What a great experience!
So, anyway, there it sat not being used for ironing clothing….
The triangles come from a stamp I made out of foam core–the stuff that often backs framed art or photos.
It occurs to me that with abstract painting, it would be good to not frame the thing until purchased, and then frame it according to the customer’s vision. Wouldn’t that be a gas? (As it is, when I was working on the thing, I had it turned 180 degrees so the triangles were pointing down.)
We are amused at the audacious use of the word “purchased.”
