While working on some new pieces today. I wanted to do some stamping with textile paints, on small areas that needed to be masked off.

The masked off areas are small and simple. I was thinking that there must be something I have around the studio that is quicker than using painter's tape.

Then I thought of my old telephone books!

It works like a charm. The pages rip out of the book really nicely. They tear in half easily as well.

So don't send those old telephone books to recycling just yet.
