That’s not gone well.

Ah. All the excitement of yesterday’s resin and peacock feathers has subsided.  Two main reasons:

1: The resin has a different refractive index to air, so the shimmering colours of the feathers are a very dull shade of brown.  Arse.

2:  I followed all the instructions about putting it to cure in a warm place and thought the top of the telly would be a good idea.  The resin that I had made into lovely blobs on a sheet of carbon fibre ready to carve cabochons sort of dripped off the edge and dribbled down the screen and onto the carpet.  Double arse.

And there’s dust in it. Triple arse.

So that didn’t go very well at all.  Never mind.  I nearly finished making something very funky today, and if the silver arrives tomorrow for the last bit of fabrication, I shall show you then.

And that's what I think about that.
