I’m not the author but I saw she wrote to water only when the soil has completely dried and then water until it drips out the bottom. That has worked for me, too. I’ve been told to water like it rains in the desert - seldom but thoroughly.
Wow, thank you for that link. I just watched several videos. They are like you- patient, deliberate, confident, creative and very skilled. You also have an artistic flare. :-)
This is such a classy way to upcycle sturdy yet lonely drawers. Thank you, especially, for the wonderful video. I love watching your hands and hearing the sounds of your tools. Lovely.
Hot glue is great but if you have concerns you can use silicone. They even make aquarium silicone.
Never mind damage to the pencil tips when they hit the inside of a wooden box, the pencil cores will also break (inside of their wood exteriors) when they get tossed around. High quality pencils are worth protecting. :-)
Sounds cool! Yes, you definitely need to seal it to prevent eating concrete as well as to make a smooth, cleanable surface. Think of ceramic dishes which always have a glaze on them.
Maybe a light bulb (sans metal part) plus a cardboard tube for the pestle?
What a great read!Here's another use... colored pencils. If you like using colored pencils but want a richer color, brush a very light amount of baby oil over your drawing and it will "melt" the pencil marks to a smooth, darker color. Beware thinner paper can be damaged and this works better on some brands of pencils than others. There's a artists' product specific for this purpose but it's pretty nasty stuff. There's lots of info on YouTube which is where I learned of this.
I used several as an emergency fix along the bottom of a chain link fence my dog pushed through.
