Mystery Blue Punty Additive

Does anyone know what the stuff is that Janusz Pozniak is adding to his punty is this video of he and Dante making a low bowl? I've attached a screenshot.

Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WGgCUVnoQs

Thanks...

P.S. If someone says "glass" just remember that karma is a b#%ch.

Powdered chalk?

He adds it to the business end as well...would chalk allow for an easy release?
The bowl is a transparent roll-up so a punty mark would be a definite no-no.

It very well could be chalk. I've used chalk on the bottom of a vessel to find center and lost pieces for lack of sicktivity. Ok maybe not a scrabble word. Anyway it could be some straight line for a chalk box.

Sand punties have been around forever and I've seen where someone will roll on a piece of ifb before applying. Blue chalk would be my vote.

That has to be one of the shittyist demonstrations I've ever seen. Very saddening to see that as the benchmark for students now coming into glass.
So very sad.

Jeez Peter, With just a little work you could turn that into a tweet.

Ok, what was the point of the extra transfer after the rollup. Why go through closing the bubble, re-opening it, and then transferring to a post?

Not long after I landed in Seattle I took a three-day workshop at Pratt in assisting skills. The instructor(s) was one of Lino's main people. When we got to making this kind of punty, it was stressed very heavily that these are called "dust punties." DO NOT refer to them as "sand punties."

Okay.

I asked someone later at the shop I was working at what the deal was. I was told that the term "sand" was associated with what's done down in Mexico.

This stuff gets so stupid at times.

Thanks to everyone for their contributions and educated guesses. I think that Greg has the winning answer though and even "named" it...dust punty. Kind of sounds like dust bunny...I like it!

Going to grind up some sidewalk chalk and probably lose a few pieces until I figure out the right amount to apply. Then I can use the chalk to outline the remains on the floor.

we used to make sand punties. They certainly work unless they don't

We did the IFB thing that Eben alluded to when I was in grad school. Chalk dust is probably safer to breathe.
