I have a few items in my art room I was hoping for some insight on...
First... is that Tri-Tex Rubber Cream Glue. You can see it's taped shut. I've never used the stuff but I haven't thrown almost anything out since I started at this school. Does anyone use this? Is this worth keeping? I figure, if I haven't used it in 4 years, when will I? I'm just nervous that for some random project one day I'll regret throwing anything out and think, "Now where was that rubber cream glue? Argh."
I'm having the same considerations for that Elmer's Sno-Drift Paste. I have those smaller containers... and then I have large tubs sitting on top of one of my cupboards:
|What is this stuff?|
Next on my list is the Tacky Glue. I see a lot of teachers use it, but mine don't even squeeze out of the bottle? I know it sounds silly to ask, but again, I just can't part with items till I get a little more reassurance. Is it time to kick it to the curb?
Last but not least... I'm attempting to shift to low fire glazes. From some recent art networking conferences, teachers are raving about them and how they'll never go back to high fire. I have plenty of jars in the high fire but I don't know what to do when I'm done with all my .... Firecracker Red's... and eventually just have a bunch of Warm Gray's. How do I phase these out without just throwing out glaze?
I know as art teachers we all have a little hoarding mentality.. but- help!
