today i buffed and shaped my polymer covers. the process makes quite a bit of dust!
i wear safety glasses and a dust mask.
after they are nicely shaped, i antique them with acrylic paint. these are waiting for paint.
i had just finished painting all the covers when my husband came down to talk to me. in the middle of a sentence he said, "hey, there's water.....everywhere." ugh. so now we are waiting for the plumber to arrive. we turned off the water to the whole house, so i can't even wash the paint off my hands.
my next step will be to drill the holes for binding and then cut the paper. it's really getting down to the wire. i have to pack, and finish everything that i need to get done before i leave. and now, it looks like there is a wet mess to deal with.
