  • Decoupage help ?

    I have practised the art of decoupage for last 10 years and have made some beautiful pieces.  I practise the craft in a very old fashioned way where hundreds of coats of varnish and hours of sanding are required.

    I have come to know that there are some modern varnishes and modern techniques that use application of one layer on top of your composition  and it gives the same effect as what i work hard for.

    Can anyone please guide me on how to do that please?

  • Degrading someone for their interests/hobbies or degrading them in general to get what you want is manipulation, right?

    My younger sister keeps degrading me, my interests/hobbies, hell even my sexuality when I don’t do things she want me to. It’s honestly annoying, and I’ve told her to stop multiple times cuz it’s toxic but she just won’t. It’s not only me either, she does this to others around her too.

  • Does anyone else enjoy writing erotica in personal journal entries?

    I keep a personal private journal in which I write erotica. It can get really taboo and heavy. When I fill the journal I burn it because twice the same person ended up reading it.  

    It helps me release sometimes  the "situations" that will never happen. So my question is

    I was wondering if anyone else had this hobby?

  • Help a new EDC-er out with your knowledge?

    Okay so new to EDC. This stuff is a rabbit hole lol.

    Okay so I need advice for a knife. Backstory going to use something like Hitch and Timber engineer caddy for EDC. Google Bespoke Post Pocket for the caddy, the caddy is from Ezra Arthur, made in USA supposed to be a great brand. Comes with a knife and flashlight. Both generic, but the the wallet is great for $45. I would like to knife to fit in there, think the wallet is 4.5 in in height but not the end of the world If it doesn’t fit.

    Anyways so my question is since I’m replacing the generic knife I need some advice.

    I can get either a Chaparral CF scales, Mini Bugout, regular bugout or Delica for close to a $100 in basically new condition. A mini bugout in CF for the$140. Any thoughts on black vs satin coated blades?

    Portability is good but anything under 5 oz is good. I was planning to put brass scales on the knives anyway so it’ll be much heavier but I’m okay with that.

    The knife is going to be used for everyday cutting tasks nothing heavy. Cardboards, plastics, some rope while camping etc.

    I have a Haswell Buscraft knife on the way. If you know anything about that please enlighten me. Not for EDC but for camping.

    And lastly I will probably carry a Leatherman signal on the daily. Love this beast but if my edc gets too heavy might replace this with a SAK tinkerer or similar.

    Anyways thanks for reading all that. Pretty new to EDC so kinda flying blind here so turning to the experts!

    Thanks again y’all!
