Working on mine tonight - so far so good.  Grin
Got the paper for it on my way home from work.

Oh one small tip (which I'm sure you all know already) when using gel medium it's better not to hold it too long - you will become glued to the light switch   
Lucky I have something to cover up the small tear that caused  Tongue

OK, mine is done, and I like the way it turned out - I hope flamingofuzz likes it.  I'm just going to let it sit today and make sure it is 100% dry, and then it will be on its way tomorrow, I hope!

Yeah, no kidding, particularly before wrapping it in tissue paper to mail it!  Maybe I'll just make a bubble-wrap bag for it, less opportunity for disaster.

Envirotex lite works great if you read the instructions equivalent of 50 coats in just one application .. be sure that after you have pored it on wait 3-4 min and then breath on it blow dryers or heat guns don't work its the co-2 in your breath that makes the bubbles go away ...
