  2. Do you have any sage wisdom for getting your epoxy so smooth? Do you use water or rubbing alcohol on it?

  3. Yes, I am so pleased for Emma AND Tiffany!

    And on the epoxy... Um, not so sure I want to admit this... I TRY to use denatured alcohol because Tiffany the chemist says that's best. However, as often as not, I find myself using.... spit.

    Sorry, that's probably SO not the answer you're looking for!

  4. Tiffany says you're not allowed to touch epoxy anymore because bad things happen when you do. Also, I heard no end of complaining from her today about your entries. I wouldn't take it seriously though. She seemed to enjoy playing with your ponies ;).

  5. ok. I just let her read that comment I wrote, and she is whining about having a lot of skin missing from her fingers and apparently her manicure is ruined in her nails. Hmmm...

  6. Haha, awesome. I wonder what Tiffany the chemist says about THAT. I'm totally gonna try it. And then maybe gave and buy denatured alcohol :D

  7. Tell Tiffany she's not allowed to touch super glue anymore because bad things happen when she does.

  9. Congratulations!!!!!
    By the way is there a difference between Epoxy and Apoxie? If so, which is better?
    Thanks and good luck!

  10. Congratulations, Emma's such a cool mule!!
    This is probably a stupid question, but as I've read through your blog it keeps popping up and so I thought I'd finally better ask - what is a NAN cookie? I get this amusing image of someone's Nan painstakingly baking cookies for 200 NAN contestants...

  11. NAN "cookies" are the awards--specifically the resin relief sculptures that adorn the wooden plaques. Apparently way back when, someone remarked that the unpainted, unmounted circular medallions looked like cookies and that stuck. Champs get gold, reserve champs get silver and people who haven't been in the hobby for years and years get confused!

    :D

  13. Rosie--Epoxy is generic for two part glue (or putty in this case) and Apoxie is a brand that Jennifer uses.
