When it's done it's done, but I'll spend hours prototyping a pattern to find the quickest way to tie it well.

I just spent 4 hours and 56 minutes painting 4 size 8 poppers. And they already had the 4 coats of basecoat on, along with the 3+ coats/sanding of CA in the body slit to fill it (that's 3 days+ worth of wait time).

Sometimes I think I must be crazy.
