  1. Ken - Thank you for sharing your projects & your creativity with others. I enjoy looking at vintage photos & the fact you can keep them going with unsual items surrounding them. You make lots of great things. Thank you for the share!

  8. Hi Ken, I was looking for an email address but hopefully this will do the trick. I love your Colorburst
    Powders and painting my cards with them. That's awesome colors are awesome I have the other two sets and I just today received the Caribbean colors and I cannot wait to use them.

    However I do have a problem beautiful as they are on my card so it's not so pretty on my cream colored duvet cover. It was that pthalo green. That vibrant intense green color. In hindsight when I saw that the sprinkles I should've vacuumed them up instead I did the worst possible thing which was to connect them with a little bit of water. So I am hoping that you can help me with how I should go about cleaning this. I normally throw it in the washing machine With all detergent. But I've never had a big green stain on it before. These are watercolors right so hopefully it will come out? I appreciate your help with this. Janie Sirak ladyj711@live.com. And ladyj711@icloud.com. If it isn't too much trouble please reply to both addresses so I am sure not to miss your response and it does not end up in spam. Thank you so much for your help.

    1. Suggestion:Shout stain remover gel works wonders on everything my child has gotten on clothing over five years--whttp://www.shoutitout.com/en-US/Products/Pages/shout-advanced-ultra-gel-brush.aspx Haven't tried it with this product because I just received mine today. Did you find anything that works, I'm sure teaching high school Art SOMEONE will get it on their clothes.
