I have spend a rainy afternoon stuttering around in the studio, trying to get a varied assortment of slip trailers to work without major intervention. Do any of you have a preferred tool for storing thin slip for joining that keeps the consistency?
What I want is something that I can premix and store in that lets me trail a line of slip on to a join or seam.
I thought I had this and went to use some that has been stored in the trailer for a couple of months and ended up spending most of the afternoon cleaning the snouts of an assortment of tools , none of which had kept the slip loose enough to squeeze out, even though they were well closed.
Every thing I have is a bear to fill and won't keep the slip wet enough to squeeze out. They are also a bear to clean and/or reconstitute the too stiff slip in them. GRRRRRRR.
