Stinky Sunday

I was determined to use up the rest of my kakishibu. It's best to do when alone since people generally hate this stink. I like it in the way that I love any kind of alchemy, the magic of one thing turning into another. The messy and smell are inevitable.

I thought of Tatiana Ginsberg's paper bowls as I used up the last bit.

I like this method better than brushing, since I am impatient and don't mind getting my hands dirty.

Though they get so messy after that last step that I never manage to get the camera into them until I am all done. Hanging outside, waving at the snow. My body is crumpled and temporarily incapacitated by the floor work but I cooked to try and cover the smell. Now that I've eaten, I can get to the next scheme, a new subscription series of comix! More to come.
