Sickness and experiments

I recently visited Michigan and two days after landing immediately fell ill. Laid up for five out of 8 visiting days. To say the least mom was disappointed.  As was I, no solids, only few liquids, and not even enough energy to read I was confined. Quality time with mom and sister did occur, just at a sedated level.  

Now back in Colorado, 

Its all gravy. 

This weekend I will make my own cold wax. Like this: 

4 parts: Beeswax
1 part: Damar crystals
1 part: Sun thickened linseed oil
12 parts:  Solvent

In pursuit of less wax burns and unstable hot pots.  

I'll let you know how it goes!
