[Marbling] Sprinkle bottles and the tradition of making up stories

>Iris - leave off the sprinkle bottles. They don't sprinkle, they splatter.
The modern ones
(those that are used also for spraying your cacti) are not much better, but
rather on the
fine side, and fingers tire easily. The glass or brass devices restorers
use create a nice little
local fog, veryvery fine and veryvery expensive. I have tried the vaporizer
- not too bad,
but veryvery messy.
Some stories are and always have been international, and every corner of
the world has its
own variation. I don't do much deep research, but even so I find that one
most rewarding features is following a stoiy's or an error's way through
'quotations' crop up for centuries. I suspect that the book without an
error that has been
copied from another book still remains to be written; and this includes my
own work, of
course. I feel it teaches us to take everything we read with a grain of
salt (even if the writer
is thought to be the most knowledgeable of all), and not to be too sure of
ourselves (if we
are the writer).
- I have been building a website for Mary-Celine Thouin and her work with
adding marbling to her woodturnings and woodcarvings. The third web-page is
re-formatted from a seven page article she wrote in 2002 for a woodworkers
magazine. It explains thoroughly the processes she uses, and her philosophy.
