Crafty Craft Lovers Foil Collage Patsy Cole Home Demonstration Agent This is a column for Crafts lovers! We who are interested in crafts are always looking for something new - and something different. Ever heard of "Foil Collage"? I just returned from a two day workshop where I had an opportunity to see many accessories with this unique finish applied to top of small tables, many different boxes, and a most beautiful lamp. Here's how it's done. Materials needed: 1. Gold paper-backed foil (Hi times the area to be covered). 2. Quick-drying spray enamel (select color to harmonize but contrast with the gold paper such as brown, black or deep green). 3. Burnt sienna or burnt umber oil color, 4. White glue. 5. Turpentine. 6. Liquid plastic. Equipment needed: Small paint brush, Clean soft rags, Sponge. Step 1: Wrinkle the gold foil paper; then flatten it out. Spray with the quick-drying enamel. Moisten a cloth with turpentine and rub the paint over the foil. Step 2: Tear the foil into irregular shapes. 3. Select foil pieces at random, and using paint brush apply white glue to back, one piece at a time. Glue to table top or other surface to be covered. As you place pieces of foil, let the edges overlap. This overlapping will produce an interesting effect of dark and Ught pattern. Use damp sponge to remove any surplus glue. Step 4: Using burnt sienna or burnt umber oil color thinned with a little turpentine, brush the white tore edges of the foil. Rub the stain into the foil. Step S: Give the surface a coat of liquid plastic. PP '^ '^ Apply "Mr. Greeen" mixed ferttoer in a fast, easy to use non-prassura liquid term. Plow down the nutrients your next crop will need...

These tests were part of a series conducted at Fayetteville by ;he University of Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station. In the same tests, linuron at 2 Ibs. per acre caused slight stunting and loss of stand. This rate was probably too high for the soil type involved. POP was slightly inefficient in controlling the grass weeds while trifluralin was weak on broadleaf and slightly low on the grasses. Several mixtures showed promise in these tests. Linuron plus siduron, linuron plus DM- BP, the delayed application of DNBP plus amiben, diphenamid plus CIPC, diphenamid plus DNBP, and amiben plus potassium azide all gave satisfactory weed control with no crop injury. Other mixtures tested were unsatisfactory because of either weak weed control or crop injury. Many of the herbicides used in the primary tests were also included in secondary evaluation tests conducted at the Northeast Branch Station, Reiser, and the Rice Branch Station, Stuttgart. At Keiser, considerable early soybean injury was noted from most of the compounds tested. Amiben gave good broadleaf control and fair cocklebur control, but reduced stands slightly. The ester of amiben was less effective on cocklebur and more injurious to the crop, while the Dinoben ester caused greater stand loss, which was reflected by the yields. PCP was weak on cocklebur control but satisfactory on the other broadleaves, and caused only slight crop injury. Linuron gave excellent control of both cocklebur and broadleaves, but was severely damaging to the crop. This early injury was partially overcome .later in the season, lowever. Trifluralin caused lit:le crop .injury and gave good broadleaf control, but it was weak on cocklebur. At Stuttgart, jfhiberi and tri- fluralin gave good weed control with no crop injury or reduced yields. The esters of amiben and Dlnebon were somewhat weaker on the grass weeds, as was PCP. Linuron gave excellent weed control but was damaging at the rate used. Vernolate at 2.5 Ibs. per acre gave good weed control with no injury. In postemergence herbicide trials at Fayetteville, three treatments gave satisfactory weed control with no crop injury. These were herbicidal oil followed by a mixture of diuron plus DSMA, and chloroxuron at both 2 and 4 Ibs. per acre followed by flame cultivation. The combination of oil followed by a mixture of Malgon and DSMA was neady as satisfactory, but it injured the .crop slightly. These tests were conducted as a part of the Experiment Station's continuing herbicide evaluation program. Results of future tests will be announced as soon as they are available.
