Clay slip and crumbly dust

Another rehearsal day. Trying out suspension techniques, which worked OK - eventually. And a clay slip as body paint, which again worked OK.

It went on well, then spent the rest of the time coming off well. Leaving speckly dust on the floor.

blown away

American rock band Flying Colors use my photo of Jim Bond's sculpture BLOWN AWAY on their debut album cover. The colour, by the way, is theirs.
