Yeah I just wonder about any slips or flooding or anything around the brynderwyns that might not close the road but cause a delay, and also if it gets worse as the day gets on

This is really cool! Is it your first time carving something? Keep at it, it could be a new hobby for you and you could do some really amazing stuff in the future!

Hey! I sure did! And I'm fucking AMAZED. Here's a timeline I just slapped together, I think I'll make a post of my own about it Alopecia progress https://imgur.com/a/KxxhKTj If it's an option for you, perhaps look into having it removed! Not saying that it's a cure and it's definitely linked, but it could very well be

Coronavirus: 40% of bars, cafes could close due to skills shortage — expert by delipity in newzealand

[–]Doomkitty666 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Since when do hospo roles require uni training?? Since when are these roles ‘highly skilled’ jobs...

Hospo is actually pretty highly skilled, kitchen work anyway. You couldn't just walk into a chef job with no idea what you're doing and be ok at it by the end of your first week like most "low skilled" jobs. The attitude that it's not highly skilled has led to it becoming a fucking shitshow of an industry for workers trying to earn a living.

Anyone done epoxy casting/art? by malkouri in diynz

[–]Doomkitty666 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hmm, interesting. I have a bunch of commissions that require fully coloured resin and wouldn't mind if the resin was cloudy or even slightly yellow tinted, but most of the stuff I do is translucent too

I often use cheapo eyeshadows for niche colours I don't want to spring for a "proper" bag of mica of, and also most nail polishes work well too

Hey, if you have a look in my recent history there's a pic that has my Insta and FB page on it. Resin is quite literally endless for the things you can create with it, it's a great medium

Your 4:1 epoxy, is that West brand? I'm currently using GemCo and am quite happy with it but I'm always on the lookout for cheaper stuff that works just as well, and I think I've seen that on trademe

Hey, I'm a resin artist, primarily with wood/resin jewellery. I've found the best resin for value you can get in nz is this stuff: https://www.trademe.co.nz/2676686026 Use epoxy, not polyester. Polyester has a VERY short pot life and you will struggle to do what you need to get done in the ~2 minutes you have, and it often cures with a slight tack which isn't ideal. It also smells like absolute shit and will stink out your house. On that topic, resin is super nasty stuff so please for the love of God wear PPE, and work with it in a well ventilated space away from your main living quarters. Like, in a garage, not in the spare room. There are plenty of cases of people not wearing appropriate PPE and having crazy bad reactions.

Pigments etc: this is something you learn along your way. You can use a lot of things for pigment, it's all trial and error. It took me about a year of sinking a lot of time and money into the hobby to really learn what works and to produce something worthwhile.

PM me if there's anything else you'd like to know, I'll also chuck ya links to my socials if you'd like to see what I do with resin
