Re: Boy..... I sure am enjoying

Very exciting! Funny you mention NZ, Don. If things hadn't turned out the way it now has, NZ was actually our plan B. As much as I'm sure I would have liked NZ, I'm so thrilled we're not having to move. ;)

I don't know where I read this, maybe in PF Journal, Judy?--  Or

read or heard, not all that long ago, that if you cut the 2 corner
edges of those foam brushes, you end up with a more rounded-type
brush, so when you brush your emulsion on, you can help eliminate
the sharp edge lines you sometimes get with these foam brushes.  I
tried it, and it does work well-- for what it's worth.

I'm pretty sure I'd heard that, too, Diana, but don't think it was
in P-F. However, though I'd actually done that myself a time or two,
I found it may have made matters worse -- somehow the original edge
was sort of cleaner, tho I didn't have a problem with edgelines
anyway.  Partly that may have been from having enough emulsion on
the brush for ample flow, partly could have been using a semi-
textured or relatively absorbent paper -- or maybe from holding the
paper relatively vertical for a few moments after coating...

I don't remember, but, whichever, it goes to show you can't lose 'em
all (especially with cyano!!!).
