Edit this was originally posted in Nov 2013.

For about 4 months now I have been very limited time wise due to the passing of both my father in July and my grandmother in August. I have also been dealing with care for my mother who has had MS for at least 30 years. For those who have sent well wishes, it has been appreciated.

These issues have taken a lot of time away and for a time will continue to take considerable time in the near future.

In between all the driving, emptying a house and dealing with bureaucratic issues, I have been able to "sneak" some time in to work a few brushes but no where near the level of work I have done in the past.

Here is one that allowed me to work one step and walk away while a multiple curing processes occurred. Which worked out well time wise for me during all the activities at home, work and away.

This brush was received in not too good of shape. The brush was severely scarred and scratched to the point of where even the lettering was affected.

This took about a week of a few minutes hands on work then a whole day of curing. Then more hands on work, and then a whole day of curing. Finally all the multiple steps and application of various products was complete and the experiment was complete.

Here is the finished product.

Again thanks for everyone who sent me well wishes. It is appreciated and hopefully early next year I will be back on a more normal schedule.

It might be late but sorry for what you have had to deal with. God bless you for taking care of your Mother, and sorry for the loss of your Father and Grandmother. It's good you found some time to work on a brush, as we all need a break form time to time. Keep up the good work.
