    Resin... *shudder*

    Hey, read your blog and while it's probably not going to be relevant to your project, you can trim resin overflow with a hobby knife if you do it when you unmold it (ie, before it cures fully). There are also some strategies for reducing bubbles, like pouring very slowly or doing multiple thinner layers. Stirring slowly and gently when mixing can also help.

    They never closed the school when I was a kid either, but parents were allowed to say that the weather was too poor and keep kids home. Apparently the logic was that if a child didn't get the memo then they could freeze to death waiting outside the school. We did get stuck with inside recess if it was below -30C. I remember one winter that dragged on for weeks--talk about cabin fever!

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I remember non-standard characters being an issue in past Kickstarters, but I'm not sure if Reaper can do much. Some of the equipment belongs to the post office and might not have been designed for international shipping.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I'm betting the size of my box will be the same as last time... Not that it helps you guys visualize it! I'm probably going to paint either Rocky the dragon or one of the Smallworld characters first. Because I've been wanting to try something chibi but don't have anything.

    OMG, all three daughters were tired and hard to drag off to school. The youngest was downright grumpy. I think I'm going to need some de-stress time today...

    I was too timid to ask for the Bones Supporter badge when it was available, so I'm okay with my House Tabletop badge. For anyone else waiting, the new releases are available in the store. At long last I can buy Sir Danel in Bones!!!!!!

    Well... "Desirable" might be a stretch, but they can be pretty adorable. I might be biased. Geeky girls, however, can be pretty irresistible. Or at least I suspect that is the opinion of the young gentleman who came calling yesterday. I'll be honest, as a smart girl life was often just easier if I kept my mouth shut and looked cute and innocent. Then I could usually get somewhere with a well-timed insightful statement. I was also known for stealth wins at board games. A smart girl doesn't want to always waste her energy convincing a bunch of chest-thumping guys to listen to her. Thankfully it's easier when you're older and gaming with a bunch of married couples.

    We got lucky and the clouds cleared just in time to see the eclipse. Don't think we got 100%, but it was very close.

    Froggy has the wisdom and foresight to pre-create these threads and keep them hidden until the proper time.

    Resin... *shudder*

    Corporea's tip about keeping dust out is hugely helpful. I usually cover anything for 8-12 hours and let it cure for 24 hours. If you really want to go down the rabbit hole, there are some amazing works of art done in Japan with layers of paint and clear resin to make it look like there are live fish swimming in the resin. YouTube has some demo videos of the technique.

    Resin... *shudder*

    Epoxy resin is totally the way to go. You might need to do multiple pours if you have stuff embedded in it to manage bubbles, but not large numbers of layers. I started playing with resin in jewelry and that pretty much directly transferred to basing.

    She said she was busy with life stuff for a while. Not bad stuff, just busy.

    I am also not sure about making it to RCon, but at least @knarthex knows we're thinking about him.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Just called and apparently my account looks like it's supposed to according to the call center person... Which might mean that their entire site was hacked to send password reset requests to some AOL account. Super suspect, and I'm afraid I might injure myself from facepalming at their tech incompetence....

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Rage is building... While I was waiting for the holds on my stupid, elfing rewards card to clear someone hacked it! And they did it in a way that didn't involve me getting an email to notify me that my password was changed, even though they notified me when I set up a profile to check the balance. Something really screwy is going on, and I'm going to have to call voice jail to complain about it.
