Remember the floppy crocheted bowl I made? I posted about it here:
Lyn suggested I full it to make it sturdier. So I tried and no change other than being fuzzier. I checked the label on the yarn ball, but I was pretty sure I didn’t buy superwash. No, 100% wool.
So, I thought I would try boiling it. No change.
Lyn also suggested I decorate it. I tried using a thin wool, but didn’t like it. So, I used beads in little clusters around the bowl. But it was even more floppy.
The next step was to bring out the GAC 400 stiffener. I had bought it, but never used it. Why not give it a try? I used an empty mayonnaise jar for the shape, then painted on the GAC and let it dry.
When it dried it was perfectly solid and clear.
My favorite treat close at hand.
