Re: [SCA-JML] Colors For A Court Lady's Dress, was Re: Introduction
- Wish you could be here also. With our mild winter this year it may be an actual
picnic type event. I miss you too. It was nice to have someone to talk about
Japanese culture etc. (what little I knew back then, and still don't all that
much). Tancred and I have been talking about doing a more formal Japanese event,
with classes on etiquete etc. before, then the meal. Still in the discussion stage
And go ahead make me jealous about real cherry blossoms. I guess this is where the
'creative part' comes in and we have to use our imaginations.
Again miss you
- Did you want woodblock information? Fort Wayne public library used to have a treasure trove on the subject.

From everything from the type of paper and ink, to how to make a seal, what is used as the red ink? for the seal, symbolism, etc.
