Well, isn't that nice?? I had spray painted the switch cover that goes on the wall I painted teal. Painted the cover bronze. The heads of the screws were ivory so I decided to paint them too. First I thought I would just put on a vinyl glove and hold the screws with a tweezers and paint them one at a time. Of course, then I'd have to hold each one until it dried. Since there are 6 this didn't sound much like fun. So, I came up with the *bright* idea to stand all 6 screws up by pushing them into the bottom of a foam meat tray (which I save to use for fabric painting and dyeing). Never occurred to me that the paint would react with the foam! What a mess...... Posted by Hello

    How funny, who knew that would happen? It actually took me a bit to figure out what was happening in the photo!

    Yikes! I've seen that happen with spray adhesive, too.

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
