test I

so, i had to get rid of the fruit flies in my studio. after a week, i have attempted to release the cast and see what i can find. all i got was, broken pieces, mushy straw, rotten foul smelling straw, and a lot of flies. it was gross. this calls for a new recipe. thinner casts, maybe about 1/2" that will allow it to dry faster, layered to give structure, and the combo of abaca and boiling the straw w/sodim carbonate, so it won't be so starchy. wheat paste was horrible, it stinks, takes a lot of time to dry, and it attracts flies. my hands smell like garbage as i type this.

i'm determined to get this right.
