Legal Pinch on the CheekThe things I learned this week
you can not have "inspired by LOTRS" in an item you are selling on Etsy title, even if it is NOT a direct copy of anything in the movies, or Warner Brothers will send you a little legal letter. Can't have LOTRS in keywords either. Or hobbit. no idea on elf. Guess I'm just that good, huh?
Help with Resin! Color tint and type, please help!So I'm sure the whole internet by now has seen this, but this guy wonderful glowy shelve has inspired me to do something similar for a picture frame for a Hellboy poster I have. Now, I am a fairly experienced woodworking, I work in a furniture shop, so building the frame doesn't intimidate me at all. But I know NOTHING about the filler resin. I have some really knotty gnarly cedar wood I'd love to use, and have the cracks and knot hole all filled in with red resin. The resin part is what intimidating me, as there seems to be a lot of types and pigment options to choose from, and it looks like I could spend a lot of money and royally screw up. I know what I need, I need it to sand to a fine grit well. I'd like to have it a nice deep crystal like red (glow in the dark is nice, but I'm happy with just UV reactive if that is all I can get) I'm going to use an oil finish, so and to highlight the wood grain. So, anyone w
Dragon Con bust.SO, and update... :iconInkibus: and I are NOT going to Dragon Con this year. Due to an unfortunate turn of events which had both our main plans of travel and our backup plans imploding, and being hit financial, we just couldn't put a plan together in time that had us not mooching off friends, feeling safe, or a way back if things got bad for some reason..... Not even mentioning trying to transport costume or food or anything. To say were bummed out would be the understatement of the year. A it is, we're going to try again next year, and hopefully things will be more secure. SO if we're kinda scares for the next two seek, we're just avoiding the internet.
