- Jan 4, 2013the pvc pipe tank and scarf drying rack I found in a couple of books on
marbling. I would have to look through them to find them again Also, I
believe it's Pat K Thomas that uses one, she might send in a photo of hers.
The clip "helper" idea I got from the photos on Lucille Scelfo's website.
I first used clothespins, buyt they were rough and snagged on the scarves
and broke easily. Later, I used some plastic and metal clamps I got from
Home Depot in a bag of 11 clamps for $11.00 - all different sizes. Those
have worked much better.
I'm not sure how Lucille does it, but I clamp one end of the scarf to the
clamps, wrap the other end around the back of my neck for a minute to keep
it out of the way, then stretch and put the far end down, the QUICKLY
unhook the clamped end and put that down. I say quickly, because as soon
as you let go of the loose end, the scarf starts to move down towards the
other end and if I take too long, I get "hesitation" marks. I'm probably
the only one that knows what they are, but i don't like them to be in the
you can see the helper in the 3rd photo here:
She has told me she uses paints by Pro-Chem which are pre-mixed to do her
I can't find the photo of the pvc pipe tank right now, but you just use
elbows for the corners and short pieces of pipe for the two ends, then use
a reinforcing piece of elbow and pip in the middle of the longer sides.
