Picture of the Day
December 3, 2023

found an almost unused 5 gallon bucket of white paint in a shed here. it had been sitting a long time in the cold and had settled and separated, too much and thick to mix with just a stick, so i used a mash stirrer on rotary drill, worked it up and down, round and round, till you could mistake it for a milk shake though you wouldn't want to lick the spoon. so what to do with the dripping mess on the tool? i grabbed a big piece of cardboard that had served as dropcloth before and bent it into a ring around the bucket, then pulled the trigger and spun the excess off. call it low rent jackson pollack, but the result of this unexpected byproduct looked good enough to tack on the wall.
