OK, so maybe it is the old Un-Du, but it is new to me.
If you do not know it they have stopped making Un-Du. Apparently the tree huggers of the world, and this includes all of the floaters in California, have decided that it is not good for the environment.
So here is what I found out:
un-du®products recalled in California.
Manufacturing suspended. Aspen Shops Online received notification Friday morning, August 3, 2007 that shipments of un-du products from the manufacturer have been suspended until further notice.
This is as a result of a notice from the California Air Resources Board that the products sold under the brand name un-du® may not be in compliance with their new Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) regulations.
Boy was I upset. I ran out and purchased as many bottles as I could find. I must have had about 15 bottles. Who ever thinks that if you have 15 of anything that you would run out.
Well guess what, I ran out!!!
Oh my, oh my. I need my un-du. I un-du my nerves when they are stuck together. Un-du is my best friend, next to my Big Bite, Perfect Layers and craft knife. I love this stuff.
Well, today while I was walking through the Hobby Lobby, I remembered that I needed some un-du. I remembered reading something on 2P's about using something that would work just as well.
Once again, my good friend Cat from Chicago does a search on the board for me and finds that I just need to purchase rubber cement solvent/thinner.
Come on y'all remember how Dad would have it in the basement the can with the red line around it. My Dad would use it to take all kinds of things off his hands and as a matter of fact, that was even better than turpentine.
I poured it into a paper cup and put it in my un-du bottle and I am now good to go. Gosh, it is such a wonderful feeling to know that those tree huggers will not stop me from changing my creative mind again and again and again.
Crisis averted and off to make art.
until we meet again,
