Well that's me out of the PM'ing fun for a few day's. Because i start so many new projects before finishing others i have more than enough unfinished projects to keep me going for well lets just say quite some time. Thanks to so many i simply don't have the room to start anything more bigger than hand sized. Because i have so many projects to finish the only way i can finish them without getting bored i decided a while back the only way i could catch up with this massive task is to cycle through each unfinished projects a few at a time for a week or two then move on to the next batch. Today i am back on with my full dragons & i got a fair bit done too. I had just modyfied a dragon head that i want to plaster mold & copy for a series of similar styled dragons, about 6 or so of that same type. Whilst it's to one side drying ready to be copied in plaster i decided that i'd finish of some of the foil copied bodies i started some time ago.
That's when i saw red, litteraly. I had just cut open a foil copied body & instead of easing open the cut, pulling out my fingers then pulling it open further along. I went & ran my fingers along inside the cut foil & paper layers. Mercifully there are few to no nerves in the sides of the finger tips (I know this as i hate cut fingers so i jab my fingers on the sides to do my blood monitoring for my insulin). So before i felt anything a nice oval area around an inch & a half suddenly went red on the edges of the dragons body were my fingers were.
When i pulled my fingers out i discovered i'd just sliced my first finger on my left hand half way around about a centimeter from the end of the finger. A deep slice too. Sometimes i wonder if reduced feeling in my left arm & lack of nerves in the edges of the fingers IS such a blessing. It took a few minutes for the bleeding to stop so i knew i'd clipped a vein. One small mercy is the reduced feeling in that hand & the fact the cut is neat edged once the bleeding stopped i figured it should be closed up enough to use the finger safely without pulling the cut open too easily in a few days. The worst part is i was really enjoying working on my unfinished dragons again it's been a while. Oh well i suppose i should see this as a good time for a short rest until my finger knits a little. Either that or my dragon was having a go at me for leaving it so long & attacked me out of spite. Hmm i think i might call that one spite lol.
So for me it's down glue brush until the weekend at least possibly next week. My big question is now: When is this going to start hurting, it's quite a wide & deep slice so it WILL hurt eventually. I hate cuts on fingers agggggh!.
