Graphic Amenity

I have tried and discarded countless variants of correction fluid for the stone-age graphics I prefer. The need for one can't be predicted, and this morning brought yet another semi-urgent search for some kind, any kind, of white-out.

Not surprisingly, the Really Old School Commercial Art recommendation, permanent white gouache, did the trick. I found a years' old tube in my kit, and it was good to go, though I needed pliers to open it. The contents gave off a heartening incense-like aroma.

What I really want is a notebook page that supports dry erase marker. The Academic Book Store is offering spray cans that promise dry erase, magnetic, and chalk surfaces, and I look forward to testing them on paper.  In the meantime, clear nail polish does the trick -30-
