These are great! I also love your drawings. Question: do you have any idea of the lightfastness of these inks? Or how they work with silk (minus the gum arabic)? I do dye silk with natural dyes (from bark or mushrooms or insects, etc.) but I would love to be able to create more of my own dyebaths, especially a fantastic purple like you're getting.(side note: sloe berries are used in the ingredients for a Sloe Gin Fizz or Sloe Gin, they give it a flavor and reddish color-gin itself is flavored with juniper berries! I used to be a bartender)
I've used the pool noodles for sanding balls and other indoor used things and they've lasted for years with no degradation. Sounds like it's the UV or possibly chlorine from the water.
I've used pool noodles for sanding balls (to get inside bowls on a lathe) and other indoor use things and they've been fine for years with no degradation. My guess it's the UV or chlorine that's breaking them down.Pool noodles are fantastic for all sorts of hacks.
I've never worked with hypertufa, is it watertight? It would sure be a lot lighter! Mine used about half a 60 pound bag of cement so it is hefty! But that being said, if a racoon climbed into it, I doubt it would tip over.
Rhubarb is crazy! I'm in California and mine grows all year long. I'm constantly dividing it and giving away plants.
Still looks good! The birds will like it whatever it looks like!
It does not prevent it completely, but it sure slows it down.
Absolutely. I knew they were poisonous to us, but I didn't think about the birds! I had a few stubborn stems, but they're gone now. Thanks for reminding me, I will edit my Instructable right now!
You are welcome. The birds are super happy with the new birdbath!

These are good but sort of a lot of work. I fill paper egg cartons with shavings (pack 'em in!), then pour melted paraffin into each section. That's it! Once it cools, tear the sections apart, place one under your tinder/kindling pile and light the paper carton part, no wick needed. It'll burn for a good 10 minutes or so (not exactly sure because the fire always starts!). I give them away in the winter as gifts!
(me too!) Hopefully my brother will love it, it's his birthday present!

Thanks for your comment. I guess you'd have to make the arrowheads on every tab on the cut side, sort of difficult to pull thru the holes, but sure! that would work too!
