hi all. it's me again, here to pester with my newbie ramblings lol.

i was reading the board last night and remembered i still had
leftover paste (which i believe has been in there for well over 4
weeks) and i decided to try it out so i kinda freehanded a simple om
(not the best, but it looks kinda cool). the stain came out lighter
than my other tries, but there were a bunch of differences in
variables this time... older paste, less heat, lost my little vial of
eucalyptus oil, used glue instead of new skin, been feeling kinda
stressed, etc. i actually think i like the softer sienna color a
little better than the really deep mahogany color i got before.
also, the stain seems to be a lot more consistant... my palm before
was kinda splotchy in places. i was reading back a few posts and saw
the one that mentions using glue in place of new skin... so of course
i wanted to try it, but i didn't have any regular elmer's or anything
so i used "tacky glue" instead... it's just thicker white glue used
for crafts and things. i think it worked rather well... it didn't
make the design run like i kinda thought it would. i did run the
blow dryer on it for a few minutes just to make sure i didn't glue up
the whole house with my hand, but i didn't have any problems with it
or anything. so that's cool. and way less stinky and more flexible
than new skin. well i think that's about it for this ramble. sorry
it's so long. take care all.
