    Re: Epic Fake Rock in the making!

    So more progress at the cost of my finger... Me, being very blonde at moments(When light shines through lol) I read all the warnings n cautions on the bag of unsanded grout about it being corrosive blah blah blah. The left over mixed batch had settled almost solid bottom and watery top, so it took a LOT of mixing to get it ... workable. It was now thicker so instead of painting it on like I had the last layer I decided to 'finger paint' it on. I had used my fingers with sanded grout with no issue so why not? Well It's working great, I am mushing the lumps onto the rock n it's going quick, awesome... right? I notice over half way done that my one finger(I had only been using the one, Thankfully) looked all prune-y like it had sat in water for HOURS... I think nothing of it, I mean come on this stuff has water in it so it's fine... About a minute or two later it starts hurting... then I see I've left a small streak of blood. So I stop and clean my finger, looks just like I cut it on the sharp sanded grout, no big deal. I use my middle finger to finish this layer...

    Now I am left with sever chemical burns on my index finger tip n minor chemical burns on my middle finger. Yay for reading n being aware of the corrosive properties n not adhering to the precautions. lol oops.

    I also added some color to the last layer n before it dried I dabbed a little paint here n there... I should have waited till it dried... It looks like popcorn... buttery popcorn. lol At least it's easy to fix color.

    Thank you, Thank you.
    I have put on one coat of sealer so far, going to fix the color a bit, then add more sealer, and more sealer. It's coming along rather slow... Had my first day of 'work' yesterday and I have never been so bored in my life! I sat there n watched everyone else work... I hate getting paid to sit on my arse n do absolutely NOTHING... And I'm off to do the same today... and for this whole week. I don't actually start training or learning anything till NEXT week. I always said I'd never have an office job.... And now I do... Don't think my spine likes sitting for that long... I'm going to ask my boss if I could bring my fake rock to work for the first 'do nothing' week... It's past the messy stage.... Will see.
