Whilst still waiting for a materials delivery that should have arrived last Friday…decided to get my cauldron on since it’s the season. Making some sticky wax for sticking masters to bases for mould making. Got the beeswax and rosin over a year ago and finally getting round to it now. Mostly because I had trouble with a floating banana last week.😳🤯😱🍌
In the fridge now, hopefully it works. Got the idea and recipe from YouTubers @RobertTolone and @RichardThompsonCA. Thanks!

Been a while! Was a bit busy with having to move house then getting Covid for the first time. Lasted for weeks! Not fun. But still battling on busily with projects galore. Big thanks to Kieran at @prettyscenicglasgow for planing the recycled scaffolding boards today that I got from @glasgowwood. Saved me so much sanding. Just hope they stay flat in all this humidity! You might actually get to find out about this project within 6 months for a change. It’s a big fun one for me with lots of creative and design juices flowing. But for now, wood is good. That’s all I have to say today.? Happy Friday everyone!?

I’ll admit I’m not the neatest of workers. I dream of being one of those Instagram-ready makers with pristine workshops, perfect moulds and casts in all the right places. However, you’re more likely to find me hair askew and generally dishevelled under a pile of sticky blue towel, wood shavings and blobs of foam, with tools strewn about the place so I can never find them and picking bits of liberally dribbled rubber off my clothes. My moulds can sometimes look brilliant but sometimes they look more like the peeled, snotty skin of an exotic rainforest frog but I don’t mind as long as they work. I love Instagram for the pictures (of course!) and in particular for makers’ images of their work, so much inspiration. But I also like not being so perfect as long as it gets the job done.
