Eyeballs for the Joker

He’s looking at you.

I’m afraid it’s gotten very dusty. I’m not sure what to do about it, at least until I have a few more of the sketch lines covered. I don’t want to wash them off. I haven’t fixed the teeth yet. Here’s the full view.

    Hi Hannah,
    You could use a vacuum cleaner to remove the dust.I do this always to clean my felt cloth when I do nib painting.Hope It works out for you too…..

    Love the eyes!
    How about some sticky tape to pull up the (looks suspiciously like car hair – that’s how I de-hair my pieces)

    Black always shows up any hair, but it will come off with the sticky tape. Good to be reminded of this project – I’m looking forward to seeing this one grow!

    Hi, my name is Peta & I live on the Gold Coast in Australia. If you go to the pet section of your local supermarket they have a roller covered in a sticky substance to remove animal hair. Just roll & hey presto clean in no time. I have found with cat hair (which seems to have a little barb) to only roll away from the tip. I have used straight sticky tape before (a lot) & I have found sometimes the tape will actually leave a sticky residue which will only add tot he problem. I am not a great advocate of always rushing off to shops to fix problems. I try to use what I have, but for fine crafts sometimes manufactured products do really help.

      Hellooooo way over there! One day I would like to visit Australia. Your suggestion sounds good to me. I think I had one of those at some point, but I haven’t the faintest idea where it went. Might have to get another one.

    In addition to what Petra says, in Calligraphy and Illumination we were taught to use Scotch (white) tape, not the clear stuff. And stick it down once somewhere else (a handy cushion?) to remove a little of the glue from the back. Should have said this in my earlier comment.
    The only trouble with a pet roller is that they are a couple of inches wide -maybe difficult to manipulate in small places. In the smallest places, you can even cut tape to fit.
