I have been on a snowflake making binge lately. I blocked out everything and used a glue/water mixture. They were drying beautifully.
Then, I put them aside for a couple of days to finish drying. (Mostly so I would leave them be and quit obsessively checking on them!)
When I checked on them again, my heart sank. Apparently my pins decided to leave rust stains on about a half dozen of the snowflakes. The pins were not rusty nor bent when I used them. Where did this come from?
Also, does anyone have any suggestions on how to remove the rust from cotton thread without destroying the piece?
