1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: gocco silkscreener? on: February 04, 2005 09:05:58 AM
Basically, the Gocco's advantage (I think) is the fact that burning the screen is so easy, since it takes just a couple of seconds with the hot bulbs.  The Gocco is sort of a quick and easy, foolproof method of screen printing.  You burn a screen, squeeze the ink onto it, and start printing.  It uses sort of a stamping-down technique. It's really easy to get a set and get started right away!

Disadvantages are that, with the most basic machine, the print area is only about 4" by 6" max.  And, many of the parts are one-use-only, such as the light bulbs that you use to burn the screen, and the screens themselves.  Also, you have to use their special inks, but you hardly need to use much ink to print your designs, and it doesn't cost a lot, either. To tell the truth, I find that it's worth it, especially if you can buy the materials in bulk; they are a little more economical that way.
Thank you for your response....I guess I will have to get one and play with it.

Also there is a lustre dust which is luminous and comes in various colors.  It is much much
finer than glitter.....silky smooth.....that would be a nice addition to this dust.

I actually came up with a mixture of the powders that the tasters liked best.

I like to put it in the little celophane gift bags and tie it with ribbon and attach a
business card to the ribbon.  I make a thin rectangle for the bottom of the bag
to give it shape cut out of card stock.  You can find the bags at party supply stores
and they are clear and some of them have little designs on them.

As far  as the jams go the pH would be less than 7.0 because fruits are acetic.
As for water in the oil scrubs......the oil would float on top of any water that you would
introduce into the jar and therefore the only bacteria that would be able to grow in that
medium would be anaerobic.  This would be extremely remote.

I have made batches of edible honey dusting powder in both vanilla honey and chocolate
honey flavors.  Also have made edible oils.  In these powders I experimented with
cornstarch, arrowroot powder (which is silky but doesn't taste as good as I wanted)
rice flour and a few other things which I can't remember right now but if you are
interested I will look at my shelves.

10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Please help - does anyone know this business that has ripped me off? on: February 01, 2005 11:21:36 PM
Just did a Google search on website fraud and came up with this.  Looks like you can report
it here and maybe her website will be yanked. Also, Houston is a rather large city being
approximately 40 miles from one side to the other.
However all that said, the best shot at getting your money back is probably the Attorney
General of Texas.  Good Luck.
