Do you expect the tool coating to last for several years? In my experience any colour on any of the tools was... well, sanded away pretty quickly by the... sand!
Actually I'm more annoyed by the colour particles making its way into the soil than I am by the degradation of the tools. Especially the wheelbarrow that had a thick layer of green colour and it is dropping off in flakes. I hate to see the chemicals in the compost, ending up in the salad garden.
One thing is for sure - there's no shortage of mislabeled games merchandise on sale out there and, beyond that, there's always room for obfuscation in collections where some titles take the headlines while the rest get buried in the small print.
Then there's the sort of merchandise that never got any visibility or wasn't made public in the first place, which makes it very hard to even properly search if you can't guess the right criteria.
The truth is you've managed to dig up a heck of a lot as it is. So, seek and you shall find, Zombie!
Or so it would seem to the casual passer-by when seeing that new poster of yours, Zombie.
As for that other rarer Apocalypse EU poster, maybe because of its size, it makes one take notice of the 'L' even more (kind of at odds with the other letters, as it seems almost as if it's the only uppercase letter of the bunch).
Glad you managed to diminish the severity of the damage suffered. The colours are great!
"Pinkish" it is, Zombie. Seems to serve its purpose just fine in this case anyway.
As for the park bench, I've now officially grown accustomed to being spoilt rotten by your completionism on the job and this latest picture with the lavish coat of paint on the underside of it just reinforces the notion that elevating your paygrade right about now is most definitely in order.
And about that pink saboteur - I'd put that panther on a leash!
Pink, he says. Assuredly, he says. One could really be fooled...
What I can easily believe is you sequestering paint at any opportunity, Zombie.
At any rate, the boards are looking good regardless of their specific paint mix. I'm a little surprised you bothered spending that much caulk on that park bench though, as the wood planks appear to be a bit overly uneven in places (before the caulking). Well, I suppose it will at least prevent it from aging as badly from now on, so there's that.
Suffice it to say you've still got the moves, and they be smooth, Zombie.
Seeing those cracks reappear after applying paint can get under one's skin sometimes so it's good you have the ability to know when to call it enough, devoting the time instead to further other more worthy pursuits.
Besides, I'm pretty confident you'll find the right way to make those slight imperfections you mention become downright negligible down the line.
Master of the Long Tables, thy return shall be awaited!
Don't take your eyes off him, ladies and gentlemen, or you'll bat an eyelash only to discover having been restored yourselves!
Yep, Zombie, you're at it again, undoing the effects of aging, turning the unsightly to the polished, scraping, brushing, coating all the while keeping costs in check.
Looking at the pics, you've made some really nice progress on paint alone, but I concur some cracks here and there are nastier, so I look forward to another adept demonstration of your caulking kung-fu.
