The Arden velcro sandal style would not have been as sexy name as flip flop, I agree.

No need for shoes is even better. But quite often it is not too comfortable due to all sorts of rubble erc.

Have got linseed oil now courtesy of Irhamy who found it in an art shop. My first two Hird Leaders are in the drying phase. It’s more exciting than watching paint dry :D

Cheers, Paul
It's an exploration; bring a flyrod.

That's really great. They will cure faster in the sun, by the UV-rays.

If you hang it in the right place, you can do some science for us and answer a question I've had for a while:

"Is waiting for paint to dry more interesting than watching grass grow?"

A sample size of one, but I'll take it as a start ... :D

It depends on the type of grass you are watching. Bamboo, which is a grass, can grow 91 cm in 24 hours!

Easy answer, most interesting is watching grass, you're outside relaxing. Paint, you're mostly inddoors, and stressed since you need it to dry, so you can get on with stuff ;)

That's your sample of one done already.

Smoking grass while watching painted grass grow and dry at the same time might be interesting.
