This is a story about how I got something I needed and I didn't know I needed it.
I have always been smitten with the work of johnwgolden He's an amazing digital artist. He's also kind enough to share his resin techniques on YouTube. But something else caught my eye over the weekend. He built a jig of solid foam core to hold his work.
Until Saturday, I have been using a jeweler's clay (that doesn't harden) to hold my map cuff links and rings steady while I preserved the maps and poured the layers of resin. It's iffy to level them, and since our home was built in 1918, my studio is anything but level. And, I have spot levels everywhere.
So, I told my husband about this brilliant, yet simple solution that John came up with. And he simply said, "oh, I can build you that." And what you see in the photos is Bob's version. I've already put it to work.
You know what? I really needed that.
