I teach in Connecticut; all areas of the US are fine--I can email you.
Let me know.

And if you order 2 gallons ($110) it’s free shipping! Why pay $180 for two gallons when you can spend $110, that’s $70 you can spend on other materials.

Has anyone heard of this? It's an exuberant Greek coffeehouse/taverna shadow puppetry tradition. Apparently nobody does it in the US any more, now that the post WWII generation of ethnic puppeteers has faded to black.

For those unaware, Dragon*Con is a large pop-culture convention held here in Atlanta every Labor Day weekend for the past 25 years. It's more than just a comic or sci-fi convention and still has a very "fan driven" vibe to.
Last year Beau Brown, who some of you may have met at the National Festival this summer MC-ing the Potpourri, and friends started doing some short puppet videos of 'Bob & Carl the Sci-Fi Janitors' that played around the convention on the convention TV…Continue
