Re: Help For Art Teacher Hands


Date: Sat Oct 18 2003 - 17:21:16 PDT

lol....keep your hands clean and don't know. Is it
possible? Things that HELP are Burt's Bees lemon cuticle balm and their
handlotion for sensitive skin. As to what takes the stains out....hmm.
After tempera painting, my favorite hue is turquiose. I just love the
"dead" look, don't y'all? ANd then there is what I call my "car
mechanic" look that I get after doing tempera batik...using india ink
over the tempera to stain the paper black in the chalk lines, create
that beautiful mock batik look. My cuticles stay black for days with
that one. Clorox helps, but then you get the dry cuticles. Hmm....any
miracle workers out there?
