Re: Just feeling down

@Saltwaterdreamtime  that sounds awesome. 

You have to let us know if you end up doing it! 

Do you have any photos of boards you like to share with us?

Re: Just feeling down

These photos are just from a surfboard shaping group I’m a part of - not my work but this is the kind of look I want (this isn’t a fabric inlay though, that’s different) then There’s some really cool shapers down this way that have fixed up my boards for me and stuff so might get in touch and see if they have any tips for me.

Re: Just feeling down

And this is two longboards I found online @gina-RO 00E4262C-E5CB-45A5-A828-3CDA2E19F797.jpeg

That’s the fabric inlay i’d like to try, on the right. 

Re: Just feeling down

@Saltwaterdreamtime that looks so cool!

Do you use a resin of some kind over the fabric?

Re: Just feeling down

Yeah heaps of resin @Tiny_leaf I’m not sure if i’ll just shape it then send
it to the glasser or do it all myself, but that bits really hard, set the
fin boxes and stuff

Re: Just feeling down

@Saltwaterdreamtime maybe you could play around with a smaller model first?

That way you could experiment a bit without it costing as much time or money as a full-sized surfboard, and decide based on how you go with that.

Either way though, good luck with it!

Re: Just feeling down

Yeah not a bad idea... just don’t know where to start!! 🤔

Re: Just feeling down

Hi @Saltwaterdreamtime,

 

I am just catching up on last night's posts and noticed you were feeling unhappy with something you were working on yesterday. How are you going today?

 

I also saw a post that your brother got a job! Very exciting and a real testament to the continual support you have given him the last couple of months Smiley Happy Very happy for you both!

Re: Just feeling down

@Jess1-RO yeah still a peice of junk- dumb crap waste my time never doing
any sort of art project ever again in my life

Yeah I’m happy for him, first day tomorrow so I’m hoping I can be home to
take him or he knows how to get the bus there I told him which one to get

Re: Just feeling down

Was it the surfboards you were working on @Saltwaterdreamtime? I know that I am very similar- when an art project doesn't go the way I hoped it would I can feel really flat. I hope that in future if art is something you enjoy that you will be able to come back to it

 

Please let us know how the first day goes- we would love to hear how he went! How does it feel to see him doing well and getting some things happening?
