No anvil? A hammer locked in a vice I've used when I was poor. Also hand weights, auto body shaping anvils and even wood can be used if no anvil is available.
Glue. Store glue upside down to make sure if any cures in bottle it's still usable. 2. Put Vaseline on cap to keep it from getting glued shut. 3. Only use flexible glue called contact cement, it's a type of rubber cement.
Greetings, Mortals to my humble page.
Who am I
I'm a successful conservative Libertarian, egoist millionaire, and aloof recluse living in the City of Bozeman in the south-east hills 5 minutes from Downtown. My wife and I went from $10K in pocket to where we are now in 10yrs, God bless the American Dream!
I'm a pious Catholic artist (and horror artist) of German/Irish decent and I've been with my amazing wife since 89. I'm a diabetic, and my mood moves with my blood sugar. We don't attend church, but maintain a home chapel.
We have no children, as we both are too selfish and codependent with each-other that we realized a child would just be a distraction to us. We dealt with children as children, why deal with them now?
We are madly in love and best friends and just prefer the company of each-other.
My wife and I own our own company and own a few of pieces of property in Bozeman where we live. Our store can be found on Main Street and we live a humble yet opulent life in our dream house, Arkham Mansion.
I'm an artist and a gamer and look to soon publish some RPG supplements (Mostly based on Lovecraft under my side company Arkham Antiquities). Currently we are concentrating on getting our Hyborian Collection, of functional prop weapons, and gear from our home foundry and smithy up.
I make a very good living running an unconnected corporation so making a profit in the publishing/propmaking industry is unimportant, it's more of a labor of love than anything else. I expect to make money....but profits are just gravy to my primary income.
What is Arkham Antiquities
It will be a publisher of Lovecraftian RPG weapons, props, adventures and supplements for ANY game based on H.P. Lovecrafts writing and works in common as well as those of R.E. Howard.
A prop house and art house of Cthuliana and esoteric art.
Much much more...
I'm developed my own style I'll get a drawing to where I basically want, make copies and experiment adding on so as not to destroy my progress, scanning and re-scanning as I add layers. It adds depth and eases my nerves.
I see art as a way of life, I sculpt and carve stone,plaster,clay,wood and whatever can be worked. I draw and paint. Most of my painting is using medieval methods with egg tempera paints that I make.
I carve soapstone molds to cast pewter jewelry, buckles, pilgrims badges and other medieval and RPG themed items. I work bone from dinosaur to human, and ivory from narwhal to mammoth.
I'm a carpenter and woodworker, I make furniture and can pretty much build anything given the time. That said I'd rather hire others as it gives me more time to spend with the wife.
I own a large collection of Firearms, from Broomhandled Mauser to Tommygun to AK47 to AR15s and an AR10. I collect militaria, antique books and anything related to Call of Cthulhu or R.E. Howard.
I hate noise, and thus the suburbs as many in the suburbs show little class in controlling barking dogs, or worse their yelling idiotic children. (Parasites who only raise property taxes by spawning more, lol) .
I hate the suburbs, the culture or lack of it as it debases the soul and brings a crudeness to my life. This is why I moved from the Suburbs to the Hills in true roman use of the word.
Other men can be stacked as cord wood in the city or suburbs drowning in the mire of clamor, a septic tank containing the din of the masses...but I'm an Artist and need spacious and broad vistas. When I need the toile...city it's just 5 minutes away. With zero backups.
