A Painting Made From Pieces of Glass
i just realized it’s not just pieces of glass
they’re shaped as paper planes
the piece can be complete and aesthetically pleasing even when there is no projection this is so good and it makes me so happy
THIS IS ALSO SCIENCE. SCIENCE ART. THE BEST KIND OF ART.
it kinda annoys me when people post these things and they don’t give credit to the artist. so the artist’s name is Rashad Alakbarov and he’s from Azerbaijan and he’s done several other pieces using shadows :
he does the job no one wants to do and then will be told that he’s stealing it.
The driscolls boycott is still goin on

Yeah. I was about to say. He’s that fast because he’s being paid by the pound, not by the hour. So he has to or else he won’t be able to make enough money to put food on the table.

PAINT RESTORATION OF MESMERIZING
I saw this on Twitter. He’s using acetone, but a cellulose ether has been added to make it into a gel (probably Klucel—this entire gel mixture is sometimes just called Klucel by restorers, but Klucel is specifically the stuff that makes the gel).
Normally, acetone is too volatile for restoration, but when it’s a gel, it becomes very stable and a) stays on top of the porous surface of the painting, and b) won’t evaporate. So it can eat up the varnish.
It looks scary, but acetone has no effect on oils, and jelly acetone is even less interactive with the surface of the paint or canvas.

This designer knits sweaters for Marvel superheroes
How do I get this guy’s job? 🙂
This bugged me the first time I saw this, but now it REALLY bugs me.
Women knitters outnumber men knitters like 99 to 1. (OK, maybe an exaggeration, but at least 40 or 50 to 1.) There are TONS of geeky women knitters out there. Why did Marvel hire a dude to knit for them over all the incredible women out there? Even for an activity that’s stereotypically feminine, they hire a man.
And then I actually went and read it, and I saw this:
“I’m a big ‘Project Runway’ fan, so for me it’s about that
unconventional challenge,” Bennett says. “You know, give me some plastic
bags and let me knit something out of it.”
Dammit, dude, THAT’S ALREADY AN ENTIRE FUCKING THING. It’s called PLARN (plastic yarn). People cut up plastic grocery bags and turn them into yarn and knit or crochet stuff with it. Reusable grocery bags (which is awesomely meta), bedrolls and sleeping mats, all-weather things, hats, purses, shoes, pretty clothes, Christmas tree angels, Easter baskets… This is not radical. There are hundreds of hours of YouTube videos on this shit. Here, have a Pinterest board.
STOP PRETENDING TO BE A GODDAMN MAVERICK OUTSIDE-THE-BOX THINKER FOR DOING SHIT TONS OF OTHER PEOPLE ALREADY DO.
And Marvel, goddamn it, go find a TRULY radical knitter to do awesome superhero shit. Shit. You don’t even know what truly awesome knitting looks like.
Oh, goddammit. Now I’ve looked at the sweaters. They will fit precisely one (1) shape of man (but at least comes in five sizes), and will look horrible on anyone who is NOT ALREADY shaped like a carrot/Dorito/triangle-food-of-choice. They’re not particularly interesting, although they do use very nice yarn and patterns that actually require significant skill (stranded colorwork, cable knits, designing the patterns to begin with). And they start at $1,095.00. And go up to $1,495.00.
Let’s say that again. They start at Eleven. Hundred. Dollars. For something that, yes, takes skill to make, and yes, the creator should be compensated appropriately for the time and skill that went into it. But how many women do you think could get away with charging that much for something many grannies can make? (Not because what grannies do is automatically easy! Because we devalue what they do.)
This is SO MUCH white male fucking privilege.
I am SO FUCKING PISSED.
russian food cat is one of the few things I want to exist on the internet forever for future generations to see
This is like a commercial for the dangers of teaching kids physics
When people say boys will be boys I wish this was the sort of thing they meant.
As foolish as the idea was it impressed me on some level
Cats… so easy to spoil!
Do it yourself ideas for your kitty’s amusement and comfort. Lets face it, they’re gonna ignore the expensive store-bought ones completely.
