Default Oh Crap Moment

So I thought I would "ease" the corners on my floating coin thinga ma doob so they wouldn't be so sharp. Well I put the piece back on the table in the wrong spot and the first picture tells the whole story .

Chalked it up to a "I was due" moment. So I made two more and they turned out better (sort of). Another moment of learning was that warm epoxy sets much clearer then cold epoxy. The new ones didn't turn out as crystal clear but had a slight "mirage" effect which isn't terrible but it isn't perfect.

Atta boy, Bob! With that first pic you have finally achieved my skill level
Its comforting to know the gurus also make mistakes. I think the new signs look awesome.

If you hadn't shown me the picture I would have thought you were that guru! Glad to know you are human and humble enough to admit your mistakes!
