One of the things I have enjoyed a lot this year is sliptrailing. I started working with a bulb syringe with a basketball needle on the end as my trailing tool about 10 years ago. It never really gave me the line I needed and it clogged quite easily too. Now I'm using a Clairol haircoloring bottle. $2 at the haircare store. Seems to do the job quite nicely.
Next week... LOTS of teabowls and more slip trailing.
