Just show something cool: Part 519089

I'd like to say I still turned out alright, but that would be a lie. flanders private msg quote post Address this user
I'm having fun with this. Started using polymer clay and acrylic paint for the 1st time.

I've gotten into fountain pens - this is a Lamy 2000 (1966 to current - no idea when this one was made)

Oddly I'm ok with spending money on the right comic but not on pens.
I got this for half price (normal 300+- CAD) as the nib was done in from a fall

With patience and trial and error I was able to get it back to useable!
rhodium plated 14k gold nib




before (from the sale listing) doesn't do it justice - it was bent to the side and crumpled in a bit and spread apart!!





after - all better??!!
I think I have it 98% there - a little more fiddling maybe?

@flanders very cool!

Are you using any kind of tools to shape the clay? I'm asking because I also just bought some Sculpey for the first time but haven't actually started doing anything with it yet so I'm curious.

Picked up these Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (my fav 5 part trilogy) inspired shave products a year or two ago...and as my 50th is a few days away I've decided to use them!!
The razors are also from the 1st quarter of 1974 (like me!) - just a few of my DE razors

I usually don't go for flower smelling products but these are great!! Petunia (materialized in air and said "not again" in the books) ambergris, tea, and Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster (lemon sugar) notes..just great

That is very cool. I would love to have an arcade version of "Mike Tyson's Punch Out"
I thought that was the coolest thing on the planet at one time. Burned up lots of quarters.

@figment is that Graham Nash's sig below the author's? David Crosby's gone but I wonder if you could ever get Neil Young to sign it.

Nice.

My buddy said it had to be Spain because the TMA doesn't own any of his paintings. I googled again and sure enough it said Caravaggio TMA. It turns out that starting January 20 we have an exhibit until April that will have 4 of his paintings including Cardsharps. I did cart wheels all the way home from work, I didn't drive.

Yes, that's Graham's signature beneath Henry's. David passed before his signatures could be obtained, but it was planned. Getting Neil to sign it would be a dream.

Agreed. I have no idea how you'd ever pull it off but that works be a dream. I don't recall ever seeing any item for sale with his signature and I don't know anyone who's ever said they got his signature. He's a true unicorn. Good luck!

I remember you mentioning this opportunity a while back. I'm hoping you get a little frisky in the museum and bring us back some photos that rival the photos at the end of The Hangover.

Edit: the last painting isn’t a Caravaggio but was one of his followers. It’s a painting owned by TMA.

You should see historic collectible guns and how much they go for…

Or some new guns (shotguns in particular).
