Are you going to burst the edges now?
I am considering it.
I need to sleep on it before I make the next move.

I think I have the color where I want it and this weekend is looking like a good time to shoot some clear.

The weather finally cooperated (humidity) and I managed to shoot some clear over the last couple of days.

Outside


Florescent lighting


Last weekend I only got to shoot three mist coats.
The last two days I have shot three wet coats per day.

How many coats should I shoot before I hang it in the closet for a month.
