Falling dust


Our member, BJ Mulvey, wants to share a handy new way to capture falling dust....

Came across a way to handle pastel dust when painting and thought perhaps some other members might find it useful too. Our last demonstrator suggested  purchasing a metal strip to use (which had to be cut shorter somehow. Not having a tool to do it I looked for something else in Lowes- and came up with a 4 ft long plastic wall edge protector (can be cut with a blade).  Miller (brand) "Corner Guard"  protects edges of walls- clear plastic- 90 degree angle and each side is 1" wide! Works great!
