Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How to redecorate your kitchen in an inexpensive way?
    Just want to know some nice and inexpensive ways to decorate my kitchen. many thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Paint is one of the cheapest and most versatile ways to redecorate.

      You can make BW photocopies of your fav family pictures, then crinkle them up and decoupage them to the cabinet doors. Likewise with pictures from magazines or art books.

      You can remove cabinet doors and use curtains instead. Or change the other window treatments in the kitchen.

      You can change out the hardware on drawers and cabinetry, even replace with other things. You could fit odd pieces of silverware to use as handles, or put big marbles or beads on for pulls.

      You can use chalkboard paint on either cabinet doors or an empty place on the wall. Then you have a way to decorate anyway you want with kid art, or use for messages, recipes, grocery list, or whatever.

      You can start an herb garden and put it near the kitchen window...this is a pretty houseplant that is also functional. If you wanted to personalize the container for it, get a plain one and mosaic marbles, or broken china, or whatever.

      Get a new tablecloth or placemats for the table.

      Change out the faucet or light fixture.

      Do something cool with the rangehood or backsplash, such as mosaic or accent tiles. Tiles don't have to be expensive, you could use odd ones. Even if they cost more, you don't need that many.

      You could mount things on the wall, use plate rails for your fav heirloom pieces or your good china...if you are into music, frame and hang sheet music for your fav songs. If you are into canoeing, a paddle to accent above a series of hooks for coats...or put hooks on the paddle and hang it horiz on the wall. Use your imagination. Old tools, toys, kitchen equipment, etc can all be decorative or made functional. For example, old crocks can hold kitchen gadgets.

  2. QUESTION:
    How to make a lot of money off a yard sale?
    Within the next couple of months, my kitchen floors are going to be re-done, as well as getting a new table and chairs, and a new couch for the living room. The total of all of this will be about 8, I already have about 0, what can I do to get about 0 off of my upcoming yard sale? Tips for selling things? Also, I'm going to be selling a toddler bed at the yard sale. It's in very good condition and is made of cheery wood. How much should I sell it for? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      The things that sell best at yard sales are small priced items. The way to make a lot of money is to have a lot of items. If you paid bucks for a vase 25 years ago.. don't expect bucks today. You have to learn to let go of things cheap and accept the fact that people will not care about sentimental value.

      As for the crib. I wouldn't bother with a yard sale. Someone will want it for and its worth a lot more. Clean it up, take a picture of it and put it on Craig's List. Search the current value of new and place it up there for 65% of that value. If you get it great, if someone bargains with you and you get at least 50% great too. You're not in the business of making profit here.. just making cash.

      Clear out the house, garage, crawl space, attic kids rooms. Your junk is someone else's treasure.

      Be realistic when pricing items. Have fun with the people when they want to bargain with you.. and bargain.. garage sale denisons love to think they're getting a deal on top of a deal. The worst thing you can have everyone hear you say is .. "The price marked IS the final price"

      Make it 2 days, Saturday and Sunday. Don't be afraid to drop prices. If someone looks at something and starts to walk away just say... If you like it...make me an offer..

      Remember.. this is junk if it is left unsold, so any sale is a good sale.

      Have shopping bags for your customers, have water and ice tea if its hot. Make it comfortable to stay... have fun.. smile... talk..

      If you have extra tools / fishing tackle / sporting equipment that you no longer use... guys LOVE to buy tools and will spend reasonable cash for value.

      If you have old music records (the stuff that came before CD's and MP3s) find a collector through Craig's List... you'll get better value that way.

  3. QUESTION:
    How does a person get into professional photography?
    I mean is it like modeling where you have a portfolio of your pictures? Who do you contact?

    • ANSWER:
      if you are working for your self you need to be just as good at marketing as you are at photography.
      best thing is to start with magazines there is 1000 of them and they all need images
      send out a low res portfolio to mags that use the images you shoot. all images have to be spot on or you wont get a look in. don't be fooled it is hard work and my take some time bot it is a good place to start
      if you need any more info have a look this web site
      http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/sellingyourphotography/
      if you don't know were to start or don't know where to look for inspiration it is hard, a good place to start is stock image suppliers like this one
      http://www.alamy.com/showcase/default.as...
      look for images you can shoot like the ones you see maybe you are local to a work wide event or tourist attraction and can shoot it in all weathers and seasons, you have access to a fresh food market, is some on you know a cook, hairdresser, policeman plumber or stay at home mum? ask friends or relatives that will model for you
      make a list of projects
      Food
      local sunset/ sunrise
      news stories
      anything collectable or old
      anything you have an interest in (look in books and magazines to see what and how they shoot) contact the magazines and ask if they need images

      I have talked to photographers that don't want to sell through stock image agencies because they don't want to give away half of the profit taken to the agency
      The agency is just another tool. If you are marketing your images and selling threw an agency as well it is adding to your selling power. Stock images gives any image you take a secondary market. you could have a week with out work but still get a check from an agency from a photo you took 5 years ago on a cold rainy day in your kitchen on a day you did not have any work. so it is important to shoot, shoot, shoot.

  4. QUESTION:
    What do i need to make some basic furniture like a wooden bench or picture frames, little boxes etc?
    What i mean is for example what kind of saw for wooden things, sander, drill? and where do i buy them? I am looking for the cheapest ones since it will be only for hobby. any help what to buy before starting to do anything?

    • ANSWER:
      I think you can make just about anything with a drill, circular saw and a router if you know how to use them and know how to make a couple of simple jigs.
      I would caution you about getting the cheapest tools you can find though. Cheap tools tend to break easily, and can hurt you. They also tend to be underpowered, and may not cut straight. You don't need professional quality stuff. Expect to pay about for a decent drill, for the saw, and to 0 for the router. You will also need good bits and blades. Buy a decent set of drill bits, about . Buy one or two good blades for your saw (type of blade depends on what you plan on cutting, maybe a combination blade and a laminate blade), and buy individual router bits for the specific profile you want to cut (may be a 1/4" round over and a 1/4" chamfer to start). Cheep router bits, especially in a set, will burn the wood. You will also need a good extension cord (worth its weight in gold).
      When I was first getting started on making stuff I had these three power tools (and a palm sander), as well as my hand tools. I was able to build furniture, make kitchen cabinet doors, and build a small boat.
      The key to using these power tools is making jigs, which you can now find plans for on line.
      For example: http://www.toolcrib.com/blog/2009/03/17/14-circular-saw-jig-plans-crosscut-jigs-ripping-jigs-and-more/
      I have bought power tools before at Amazon.com (dewalt and porter cable brands). You can also go to Lowes or Home Depot to find half way decent starter tools. Stay away from Craftsman power tools (i.e. cheap Crapsman). I have a grave yard of Craftsman power tools and yard equipment.

  5. QUESTION:
    Has anyone painted on Ceramic tiles, or painted ceramic tile backsplashes?
    I'm thinking about broadening my field of expertise(I paint murals) to include painted backsplashes for kitchens and elsewhere. I bought a book on how to lay ceramic tile, I just need to know if there's anyone out there with experience in this, and how they felt about it, any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      I've painted ceramic tiles (to use as coasters), with great success using "glossies" paint. Just apply it to a clean tile, and then bake it in your oven at the specified temperature & time.

      The end result is a washable, highly usable surface. Mine are now going on 7 years old, and look the same as the day I first painted them. They get constant use, too, which says a lot for the quality of the paint :)

      Another idea: You can purchase bisqued (fired) tiles at your local clay supplier. With these, apply underglazes (which you paint on like you would oils or acrylics--paint a picture or design, essentially) and then fire. Once the underglazes are fired, coat them with some clear glaze, fire again, and you have your finished work. These would be great for backsplashes.

      If you want to create a truly custom backsplash, though, you probably want to consider making your own tiles (who says they have to be square???). If you don't have the equipment (it can get pretty costly with a slab roller, kiln, tools, glazes, etc), you should seriously consider taking a class at your local community college or university. If you haven't worked with clay before, it will be good for you to learn the qualities of the medium; the importance of drying times, the advantages of using a particular type of clay, glaze interactions, etc.

      Good luck! You have a great idea for broadening your horizons!!! :)

  6. QUESTION:
    I need advice on how to paint a bedroom..?
    I have never really painted before and would like to paint my sons room. Nothing fancy, just some other color than white. How do i know how much paint I will need? What basic tools should I buy? Any specific type of paint I should buy? Just any advice would be welcome. Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      If you're like us, your bedroom probably consists of four white walls - muchresembling the crazy house that your life has become. Sure, you might have a picture or two hung up, and tables, rugs, the bed, people, etc. all add flavor. However, you can add the perfect touch of character to any room merely by painting the walls.

      So we suggest that you take a deep breath, imbue the spirit of Martha Stewart, and get ready to paint the town (and your room) red. And one more time, we really must say how proud we are of you that you decided to paint a room on your own. You are officially a non-wussy.

      1. GET THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT
      While fingerpainting your walls may be good for a kindergartener's room we suspect that you're actually trying to fool people into thinking that your paint job was done professionally. So to do so, you'll need some supplies:

      * 3-inch flat brush
      * Small angled brush for trim or corners
      * Canvas drop cloths, plastic tarps or newspapers
      * Spackle (a substance used to fill in cracks before painting)
      * Turpentine (if using oil-based paint)
      * Bucket to clean brushes in
      * Painter's tape or masking tape
      * Putty knife
      * Sandpaper
      * Primer
      * Cleaning rags
      * Roller (with extension pole for tall walls or ceilings)
      * Roller tray
      * Disposable rubber gloves

      Oh, and getting some paint would help, wouldn't it, Einstein? First measure the square footage of the surfaces you're going to paint in order to know how much you'll need. Paint cans tell you how much paint they contain in square footage, so as long as you measure, you'll be fine.

      Here's how to pick the right paint:

      Choose a type of paint
      Choose a finish
      Choose a color
      Choose a shade
      Choose your brushes and rollers

      Choose a type of paint

      The type of paint you use (and its finish) are essential factors if you want a neatly painted room. Substances like mercury and lead, which were used for centuries in paint, are now banned. That's because it's dangerous to eat the paint chips of lead- or mercury-based paint. Sure, you don't eat paint chips, but little kids eat all kinds of disgusting things (bugs, boogers, play-doh, etc.); if they eat lead-based paint, they could suffer from brain deficiencies later in life. Here are the two types of paint you should consider:

      * Latex-based paint. This is easiest to work with and the easiest to clean up -- only soap and water are required. Latex is best used on walls, floors and metal surfaces. It also works well on woodwork.

      * Oil-based paint. This is also known as alkyd-based, and requires a solvent-like turpentine to clean off of paintbrushes, your skin, and the telephone when you answer it in an unguarded moment. Oil-based paint is stain-resistant and sticks well to walls and ceilings. It is particularly popular for bathrooms and kitchens.

      Choose a finish

      Once you've decided on the merits of latex versus oil, you must pick a finish (the same color of paint will usually be available in a choce of finishes). A paint's finish affects how shiny the finished paint job will look as follows:

      * Flat finish: This finish is good for large surfaces, since it doesn't reflect light. It is often used in bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms and ceilings.

      * Satinfinish: Such a finish is excellent to brighten up hallways, common areas, and children's bedrooms and playrooms. It helps soften the paint job, muting bright colors but still allowing the color to shine through.

      * Semi-gloss finish: This finish is easy to clean, making it great for high-traffic areas (kitchens, bathrooms, doors…).

      * Glossfinish: This finish reflects the most light and tends to be used in small quantities (such as on trim).

      Contrary to popular belief, finish was not invented in Finland. That would be the "Finnish."

      Choose a color

      * White - White (and its various incarnations such as off-white, beige, and eggshell), provides a can't-go-wrong foundation for any room. Yes, it's boring, but it also doesn't distract. It also makes a room look brighter and bigger. It's great for just about any room, especially bathrooms and kitchens. At its worst, white is: too plain.

      * Red - Bright and bold, red suggests vitality and aggressiveness. It can be a bit overwhelming for an entire room, but if you have a bedroom that you want to convey amorous vibes, it's a unique way to go. Deep, subtle shades of red such as burgundy and maroon are perfect for living rooms. At its worst, red is: too dramatic.

      * Yellow - Stimulating, sunny and cheerful, yellow is associated with intellect, power and creative energy. Bright yellows bring warmth and light into dark rooms, and pale yellows make small rooms seem larger. It's also a great kitchen color. At its worst, yellow is: disruptive.

      * Blue - Blue denotes harmony, peace, steadfastness and loyalty. While it's appropriate for any room, blue is an excellent bedroom color because it makes one feel comforted and serene. It can also soften rooms that are over-bright. At its worst, blue is: cold.

      * Orange - Orange combines the energy of red with the intellectual associations of yellow. Dominant and lively, it's a fun choice for bathrooms and work areas. Peachy oranges have a delicate effect, while brownish oranges (like terra cotta) give off warm, cozy vibes. Many living rooms are orange to give it that "den" feeling. At its worst, orange is: non-relaxing.

      * Green - Green is refreshing and pleasing to the eye. It makes dim apartments seem more vibrant by bringing a garden-like atmosphere indoors. With its varying shades, green works in just about any room. Just be sure not to go too dark. At its worst, green is: dull.

      * Violet - Strong and majestic, violet is a powerful accent color. Pastel violets take on the characteristics of red or blue depending on which is more prominent in the shade. (Lilac, for example, takes on blue's characteristics, while lavender takes on red's qualities.) At its worst, violet is: overpowering.

      * Black - You probably like heavy metal, S&M, or some combination thereof. Either way, it's way more than we want to know about you. So don't paint a room black. It'll freak people out. Black walls also tend to look dirty because dust shows up very clearly.

      * Deep "warm" colors give a room an intimate, cozy feel: red-violet, red, red-orange, orange, yellow-orange, and yellow.

      * Light "cool" colors make a room seem more spacious and elegant: green, blue-green, blue, and blue-violet. White also has this effect.

      Choose a shade

      One of the biggest problems that painters face is that what looks to be "orange" on the sample in the store turns out to be "brown" on your wall. So it's incredibly important to pick the right shade of paint by examining it under different sources of light. Here are some tips:

      1. Examine the paint you desire under both natural light and the bulbs that light up the room to be painted. Again a color that looks perfect under the store's fluorescent rays will turn to bilious shades at home.

      2. Get samples of the paints you like, coat large sheets of poster board to get a sense of the paint and prop them up around the room to be painted. Look at them at different times of day, because morning light will have a different impact than sunset light. This will help you narrow your choice and prevent costly mistakes.

      3. Lighting fixtures also play a part. Diffused light will enrich the color of walls and ceilings, whereas spotlights which focus on certain points will change the color and add shadows to other areas.

      4. Also look at the poster boards when the room is furnished as it will be after the paint job. Furniture and curtains absorb light and create a different effect than an empty room. You'll also be able to see if the paint clashes with the furniture.

      5. When using white or off-white paint, remember it reflects colors around it, such as a blue carpet or burgundy furniture. In general, lighter colors distort less with changes of light than deeper colors.

      6. Remember, the higher the gloss in a paint, the more light it will reflect.

      Choose your brushes and rollers

      Now that you know what kind of paint you're using, it's a cinch to figure out what type of brush (and/or roller) you'll need. You don't necessarily need both, but there are positives and negatives to each. Rollers help the job go faster and can make your paint job look neater. But rollers are also difficult to use in corners or weird surfaces. No matter what, you're going to need a brush for touch-ups, but we recommend that you start with a roller too.

      If you're using oil-based paint:

      * Get a brush with natural bristles.
      * Get a natural (lamb's wool) roller.

      If you're using latex-based paint:

      * Get a brush with synthetic bristles (because natural bristles absorb the water in latex paint).
      * Get a synthetic (nylon) roller.

      One last note: rollers come in different pile depths, meaning the thickness of fiber used on the roller. The rule of thumb is to use a smoother pile with the smoother surface, and the rugged piles with the rougher surfaces (so they can reach into the nooks and crannies).

      2. PREPARE

      Get the room ready

      Unless you want your couch to resemble a Jaskson Pollock painting, you should follow these simple pointers:

      1. Remove all furniture out of the room, if possible. If not, pull all furniture away from the walls toward the center of the room and cover everything with a plastic or canvas tarp. Make sure that none of the furniture (not even the legs) are showing.

      2. Cover the floor with additional tarps and newspapers.

      3. Take all mirrors and art off the walls.

      4. Remove light fixtures (if you're painting the ceiling).

      5. Remove all outlet and light switch covers.

      Prep previously painted walls

      When working with previously painted surfaces:

      1. Wash walls with a mild household cleanser to remove dirt, grease and any stains. Dirt can cause paint to adhere poorly.

      2. Rinse well to prevent soap residue from reacting to the new paint layer.

      3. Remove loose paint with sandpaper.

      4. Patch holes, dents and cracks by pressing spackle into them with a putty knife. Let dry and sand gently.

      5. Sand glossy or nonporous surfaces with sandpaper to help the paint adhere. Wipe off or vacuum off any resulting dust.

      6. Apply primer. Primer is the first coat used to seal the wall and to create a nonporous surface for the topcoat to adhere to. You can also tint the primer to resemble the final color you will be applying by adding a small amount of your chosen shade into the primer can.

      Prep previously wallpapered walls

      1. Remove all wallpaper before painting. This can be a trying experience to say the least. We recommend steaming the wallpaper off the walls with a professional steamer. If that's not an option, prepare to do a lot of scraping.

      2. Patch holes, dents and cracks with spackle compound and let dry.

      3. Sand gently.

      4. Wash walls, rinse and dry.

      5. Apply primer.

      3. PAINT

      Generally, the best advice that we can give you is that you should paint from the corners into the middle, and from the top to the bottom. So if you're painting a wall, start at the top corners, and work your way in, painting from the top to the bottom.

      Your order of attack should be as follows:

      Ceilings
      Walls
      Floors
      Doors
      Windows

      Ceilings

      1. You should always paint the ceiling first. Start out by painting a 2 or 3 inch strip at the top where the ceiling meets the wall starting in the corner. This strip is called a "cut in" and it makes your paint job look nice and neat. You will use a long-handled roller to do the rest.

      2. Pour paint into roller tray.

      3. Dip the roller in paint and remove excess paint by running over the bumps or ridges in the tray.

      4. Start in the corner and go along the shortest length of the ceiling to keep the paint fresh and wet.

      5. Paint while the "cut in" is wet to prevent an obvious line.

      6. Do not stop the roller in mid-stroke. If you do, start that line over.

      7. Continue until the ceiling is done.

      8. Apply a second coat in the exact same way once the first coat has dried.

      Walls

      1. Start painting the walls only when the ceiling is completely dry (at least 24 hours).

      2. Use masking tape to cover the edge of the ceiling to prevent splattering and protect the trim.

      3. Repeat tape application along baseboards and other trim if those areas are not being painted.

      4. Paint a 2 inch strip with a small brush on the wall where it meets the ceiling.

      5. With a roller, paint immediately over this cut in to prevent the paint from drying. Repeat procedure and paint one wall at a time.

      6. Paint in square-sized sections, going up and down and then across to ensure you have applied a good coat without lines. Simply running the roller up and down the wall may result in a stripe-y look when the paint dries.

      7. Apply a second coat in the exact same way once the first coat has dried.

      Floors

      Always start in the corner diagonally opposite to the door, lest you paint yourself into a corner. Again, do it quickly and thoroughly; the paint job will look splotchy if you let some parts dry.

      Doors

      1. Cover knobs, locks and all hardware with masking tape. Once you have painted a keyhole shut, you will never make the same mistake again.

      2. If the door is flat, treat it like a wall and don't forget to paint the edges (both the side with the hinges and the side with the lock).

      3. If the door has panels, do the interior panel edges first and then the inside of the panel. Continue to paint the rest of the door.

      4. Apply a second coat in the exact same way once the first coat has dried.

      Windows

      Windows are not as easy as they look. For starters, you don't want to paint them shut, especially if you live in a hot place. There are two types of windows, so figure out which ones you have and follow the directions.

      CASEMENT WINDOWS:. These windows swing outside to open. They are the easy ones:

      1. Open the window.

      2. Paint the edges.

      3. Paint the interior casing.

      4. Paint the woodwork surrounding the window (like the sill) last.

      5. Do not shut the window until the paint has dried.

      DOUBLE-HUNG WINDOWS: These windows are divided into two major panes and open by sliding the bottom half up. Needless to say, they are a pain to paint:

      1. Start by moving each pane to the middle of its area, leaving an open space at the very top and bottom of the window.

      2. Paint all the interior woodwork you can reach that is on the window panes.

      3. Move the panes back so they are almost closed. Paint the rest of the interior woodwork.

      4. Paint the interior casing of the window. Don't forget the inner edge where the panes move up and down, called the rails.

      5. Move both panes up and paint the lower portion.

      6. Let dry.

      7. Move both panes down and paint the upper rails.

      8. Let dry.

      Finally, remember that you should keep the windows open in a painted room for a couple days to let the fumes out. They can become quite overpowering. A mask of some sort might help too.

      4. MATER SPECIAL EFFECTS

      Once you feel confident in your paint handling skills, test yourself by taking it up a notch for some special effects.

      Sponging
      Combing
      Rag rolling

      Sponging

      This look doesn't have to remind you of cheesy dentist office decor if done right. Sponging (that is, using a sponge to add some interesting splotchy color to the walls) can be done in a number of ways: with light colors over a white base coat or layering dramatic colors. Sponging is a useful technique in areas where you want to liven up a small space or add texture to a large expanse of wall. You can also use it, as with the other special effects, on only one wall in a room for variety and paint the other walls with either the background or the top layer of paint.

      Here's how to do it:

      1. Prepare surfaces as described in step 2.

      2. Paint walls with the background color of your choice.

      3. Let the walls dry.

      4. Find a sponge with the desired texture, either a kitchen sponge or a funky sea sponge. Test it out first on a poster with your background color on it.

      5. Wet the sponge and dip into the paint you have chosen for the top layer. Pour the paint into a roller pan or a tray or plate.

      6. Blot extra paint from the sponge onto a paper towel.

      7. Dab the sponge onto the wall.

      8. Continuously reapply paint to the sponge so the paint doesn't fade. Rinse the sponge with water if it gets overloaded or clogged and squeeze out excess water.

      9. As you work, step back from the wall periodically to ensure you have the right amount of paint on the sponge and that the result looks good.

      10. Rotate the sponge every so often to get a varied effect. Remember to let some of the background color how through. You want the resulting wall to look evenly sponged.

      11. If using more than one color of paint, remember not to sponge too heavily with the first coat; otherwise the base coat will not show through.

      12. Remember that LESS IS MORE. This is supposed to be subtle, not freaky.

      Combing

      This technique lets you add texture and depth to a wall with a geometric or wavy look. It is achieved by running a notched window squeegee over wet paint. It actually puts lines in your paint job, putting lines in the wall. It can make a wall look incredibly interesting.

      1. Cover trim and adjoining ceiling space with masking tape.

      2. Prepare surfaces as described in step 2.

      3. Apply paint and let dry for one day.

      4. Buy a specially prepared comb at the hardware store (or make one by cutting notches into a window squeegee). Cut the notches as small or large as you want, and space them evenly across the squeegee.

      5. You can achieve various effects either by combing wet paint in one direction (e.g., ceiling to floor), making wavy lines (vertically or horizontally), or go for a plaid-effect by doing both horizontal and vertical strokes.

      6. On a small patch of wet paint, try out what you have in mind. When you've committed to a look, use even pressure throughout the stroke.

      7. If doing horizontal squiggles, use a roller across the wall and follow quickly with the squeegee. Repeat the process, using the squeegee to make parallel lines. Never stop the squeegee in mid-stroke.

      8. If doing vertical lines, use the roller from ceiling to floor and squeegee over the fresh paint.

      9. Repeat the process to cover the wall. Be quick, or the paint will dry and you will get a less defined effect.

      Rag Rolling

      This technique involves rolling cloth over wet paint, resulting in a textured look.

      1. Any clean cloth can be used. You might want to experiment with different materials on a small section of wall before starting. Try various textures such as cotton sheets, terry-cloth towels or potato sacks for a range of effects.

      2. Prepare surfaces as described in step 2.

      3. Apply paint and let dry for one day.

      4. Cover small sections with the desired paint color. You can use either oil-based or latex paint.

      5. Put on some gloves.

      6. Dip a bunched cloth across in a tray of differently-colored wet paint.

      7. Roll it up and down or in all directions on the wall, depending on the look you want.

      8. Repeat until entire section is done.

      9. If you want a more uniform look for an entire wall, try using one long rolled-up cloth such as a bed sheet. Get a friend or two to help you cover the entire wall at once.

      5. CLEAN YOUR EQUIPMENT

      If you usedlatex-based paint, cleaning up is easy: use soap and water, rinse throroughly, and pat yourself on the back.

      If you used oil-based paint, don't breathe too deeply or you'll kill some brain cells with turpentine fumes. Instead, follow these instructions for cleaning up safely:

      1. In a bucket, soak the brushes in turpentine solvent and rub bristles together to release paint. You might want to wear gloves for this experience.

      2. Continue to rinse in new solvent until clean.

      3. Wash with soap and water and rinse thoroughly.

      4. Then just let the equipment dry.

      5. Do not pour the solvent down the drain. Rather, keep the used solvent in a sealed container and call your town or garbage pick-up service to see what your options are. Most communities have a designated day for hazardous household waste disposal.

      As far as leftover paint is concerned, do not pour it down the sink or in the toilet. Besides terrifying the guests when they flush, paint is hazardous to the environment and must be disposed of properly. If you don't want to keep your spare paint on hand for touch ups, think about donating it to a charity or Habitat for Humanity. If no one wants it, call your town or garbage pick-up service to see what your options are. In some areas, latex paint can be dried out and tossed in household garbage. Oil-based paint and solvents are flammable and probably will be taken care of during hazardous household waste disposal day. If you community does not have one, call your state environmental agency or an area hardware store for guidance.

      And now you can show off to all of your friends how you were able to paint your own beautiful room. And if any of your friends point out the inevitable error or two you made, then just tell them: "It's not an error, it's a happy accident." That'll shut 'em up.

  7. QUESTION:
    Who is into the fine art of knife sharpening?
    I don't have that sort of fancy equipment
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQUrrFlNkhQ
    But having spent many years as an amateur woodworker, sharpening cutting tools is a bit of a hobby of mine.

    Yes I have an actual question. Long ago I used to have a hand-cranked grinding wheel. Low speed doesn't mess with the temper of the tool-grade steel. I have tried to search the net but can't find one.
    i learned about this from Krenov:
    http://jameskrenov.com/
    I could never afford to attend his classes but i learned from his books:
    http://www.amazon.com/Making-Mastering-Planes-David-Finck/dp/0806961635
    Oh how I love making my own tools.... or loved, past tense, since I don't have the facilities now....

    Can anyone search the net better than I can to find a hand-cranked grinding wheel?
    I am not asking about the old grindstone run by a treadle, this is clamped to the workbench and hand-cranked so one can control the speed and not heat up the metal too much.
    I ask not only because it is a fine art but also, it doesn't make any noise.
    i have all sorts of sharpening tools, stones, everything. What's missing from my collection/inventory is the hand-cranked grinding wheel.

    • ANSWER:
      Perhaps you could assemble one of these: http://jeffpeachey.wordpress.com/2009/08/18/itenerate-knife-sharpeners/

      While it is not hand cranked, it is manual and it allows you to have both hands free while still controlling the speed of the wheel. The guy in the picture apparently rides his sharpener to work but without that requirement I would think a more ergonomic design would be possible.

      On the other hand, as I am sure you are aware, modern low speed water cooled electric wheels can be run from a car battery with an inverter (You may have to give it a spin to start it going depending on the type of inverter you use) and are claimed to achieve superior results to older manual models. Prices start around 0.

      edit: I just realized I failed to answer your initial question. I used to enjoy sharpening my EDC knife but since I got my Benchmade with D2 steel I do not seem to have the patience. If it just needs a touch up I use a diamond stone, otherwise I'm almost ashamed to admit that I send it off. I sharpen my non ceramic kitchen knives with a cheap 2 stage "Chefs Choice" 300 my GF picked up at Goodwill. My ceramic kitchen knives have remained razor sharp with the exception of one which was broken due to carelessness.

  8. QUESTION:
    what kind of utensils do prisoners use?
    what kind of utensils do prisoners use? i need pictures and or description of material, looks, etc, if possible. thanks.
    if it's not plastic or metal, what kind of material is it?

    • ANSWER:
      When an inmate arrives in prison reception they are issued one plastic cup and one plastic spoon. It is made of an ugly brown plastic that is difficult to melt down or remold into a weapon and it is very pliable. The plastic is actually a blend of plastic and nylon. It looks like any other ugly brown plastic spoon and cup that you might imagine. The cup is the size and shape of a typical coffee cup, by the way.
      Inmates who work in special areas such as the kitchen, maintenance crews, vocational classes, metal shop, etc. might have access to actual tools or utensils. These, however, do not leave the work area. Inmates are searched when leaving work and all equipment is accounted for. Any utensils missing from the kitchen or elsewhere results in an immediate lock-down while the institution is searched.
      I can't find actual pictures, but the look at the following link and imagine this plastic cup about 20% larger, brown, about 25% thicker, and with a rounded handle:

      http://www.dkimages.com/discover/Home/Health-and-Beauty/Babycare/Baby-Food/Baby-Food-06.html

      For a picture of the spoons they get, see here:

      http://www.nextag.com/AMSCAN-Chocolate-Brown-Spoons-604437313/prices-html

      They are about 50% thicker and heavier than what you get when you buy regular plastic spoons at your store and they are really bendy. They can't be snapped in half. It's the same stuff they make those unbreakable plastic hair combs out of.

      While inmates in county jail may get real utensils that they must turn back in when they are finished eating, or get "sporks", state prison inmates do not get sporks, knives, or forks.

      UPDATE: It's called "Nylon Plastic" and you can read about the chemical properties here:

  9. QUESTION:
    How do you cook CUT UP chicken???
    not the breast but the whole chicken cut ups??

    • ANSWER:
      Cutting Up Chicken by Michael Chu

      If you haven't cut up a chicken carcass before, then it can be a bit challenging. This sectioning method produces an eight piece, ten piece, or twelve piece result.

      First, start with a clean surface and assemble your tools. All you really need is a strong sturdy knife and a large cutting board. I also like using kitchen or poultry shears. In the picture below, you'll see that I'm using a plastic cutting board, but wood would have worked just as well (see Equipment & Gear: Cutting Boards). In my case, my largest wood cutting board does not have a blood or juice groove, so I chose to use my large plastic board.

      Remove the giblets from the chicken and set aside (often, I'll use these and any trimmings from the bird for making stock). Rinse the chicken and as much water as possible drip out before transferring to the cutting board. Orient the carcass so the breast is facing up.

      Start by removing the legs. This is done by pulling a leg away from the body and scraping with the sharp edge of the knife through the connecting skin and tissue.

      Once the bone is reached, use the tip of your knife to find the joint where the thigh meets the main body. Pressing down on the knife between the joint, cut through the cartilage and separate the leg from the body.

      By cutting through the joint, you won't have any shattered pieces of bone in your chicken.

      Use your fingers to feel where the thigh bone meets the drumstick and cut through the joint with your knife. Once you've separated the drumstick from the thigh, look to see where you started your cut. On the other leg, look at the same region. You'll notice a line of fat. Cutting straight down through this line will yield clean separation of drumstick and thigh.

      Next, separate the wing from the body.

      For a twelve piece chicken, cut the wing through the first joint. This cut is desirable when frying the chicken wings because it exposes more of the skin of the wing providing more area for breading and a more even fry. The wing portion with the tip is called a wingette, while the portion attached to the body is called the drummette.

      Repeat the leg and wing steps for the other side.

      Rotate the carcass so it is breast-side down. Using kitchen shears, cut through the ribs down both sides of the back bone. If you don't have kitchen shears, you can stand the bird up and cut down with your knife to remove the backbone. You can save the backbone for making stock.

      Splitting the breast can be done from the breast side, as shown below.

      Another method is to split the breast by cutting from the inside, through the keel bone.

      Once the breasts have been separated, you can cut them in half for a ten or twelve piece chicken. This is often recommended to produce portions of similar size - especially since many chickens are bred to have large breasts.

      This method of cutting up a chicken can produce the "classic" eight piece, even-portioned ten piece, or perfect-fry twelve piece cuts.

      Eight pieces

      2 drumsticks
      2 thighs
      2 wings
      2 breast halves

      Ten pieces

      2 drumsticks
      2 thighs
      2 wings
      4 breast quarters

      Twelve pieces

      2 drumsticks
      2 thighs
      2 wingettes
      2 drummettes
      4 breast quarters

      Tools used:

      Kitchen shears to cut backbone off
      Chef's knife to section chicken
      Boning knife is a great alternative for the Chef's knife for everything except cutting through the keel bone. A sharp boning knife will remove the wings and legs from body easily and since you are cutting through the joints and not bones, the thin blade gives great speed and flexibility.

  12. QUESTION:
    Latte Art Tools?
    What equipment do i need to make my own latte and also draw pictures on it?

    • ANSWER:
      1) If you want to make your own latte at home, you will need your own home espresso machine. This will cost you a few hundred dollars depending on the quality of machine you want to get, but is an excellent investment in my opinion (I am a barista and coffee fanatic though, so my opinion may be different from yours). If you don't want to buy one online, I know Starbucks sells them, or you could try asking around at kitchen supply stores.

      Keep in mind though, espresso machines are a lot different from other coffee makers in that it takes time and practice to master them and start pulling good quality shots. You will need to play around with the grind, tamping pressure (how hard you pack the grounds), when to stop the shot, etc. to find out what works for you and your machine. It sounds like you have an interest in latte making though, so I'm sure that won't be an issue. =) Many machines come with books or DVDs to get you started, but your best resource in my opinion would be the internet. YouTube has tons of espresso and latte art videos, and there are many sites with information on how to pull the perfect shot, steam milk, etc.

      I'm sure these will all come with any machine you buy, but you will also need a steaming pitcher with thermometer for steaming milk, a tamper for packing the coffee grounds, and a coffee grinder with adjustable grind settings (not included).

      2) Unfortunately, being able to pour latte art requires a very expensive and powerful commercial espresso machine, a lot of milk and coffee, and months of practice. I wouldn't set your hopes on achieving this with a home machine... I've seen it done, but it's near impossible unless you have a very good one (and you're completely crazy).

      However, you CAN do it the cheating way! Once you make your latte, dip the tip of your thermometer into the crema (the creamy brown foam on top of the espresso shot) and use it to draw pictures in the white milk foam. I've seen some beautiful latte art made this way by dragging the crema through the milk foam to make spirals etc. Once again, search on YouTube for some great videos of latte art made this way.

  13. QUESTION:
    help with persuasive essay about solar power.?
    im writing a speech about persuading people to use solar power.i know its expensive to convert but what are some simple easier ways people can use some solar power in their lives?

    also im having trouble coming up with an attention getter in the beggining.

    • ANSWER:
      Don't worry, even Al Gore did not get much attention when he appeared on the Jon Stewart show last week. Gore is sponging off the Gov to get rich. And Stewart rubbed it under his nose.

      I would start with a futuristic look of solar power. Ask ur audience how they see energy in 25 years from now. Write those ideas down and make a comparison to what exists already. Ask what in their daily life they would like to see free. I bet u they will say free gas for my car. Forge further and ask if more sophisticated toys and tools will be around by the middle of the century, like solar powered weapons and space batteries that can return to earth loaded with energy to light up a city or two.
      If i look back 30 years when i rented my first apt, i remember using hot water from a primitive solar hot water system at the rear of the house made of thin tubes of water pipes in a black painted box and the contents of that entire water system was enough for one shower.
      Other houses had more modern ones on top of their house. Over the whole block u saw several houses, each with some homemade water heater capable of serving the entire family with hot water for bathing and kitchen needs.
      In Florida a tank the size of an oil drum heats up within a hour in Aug.
      This kind of thinking goes into planning for solar energy.
      One day all roofs will be with water heaters installed, not only in FL but in Arizona and the Sahara dessert. Solar is cheapest if u can build the equipment economically. (Right now that is one industry the Obama adm should sponsor to create jobs - but job creation is not in his elitist league).
      Jay Leno ridiculed Obama too when the cash4clunkers program ran. Leno, who has an electric car on a lot next to his studio where celebreties come to compete on a circuit, brought up with a smile the notion that this car which runs on batteries could be in fact a solar powered car and would get a lot more attention thanks to his show than the soon forgotten clunkers.
      Still electric cars could be cheap in the run if recharging stations were in fact solar powered.
      Most municipalities could use solar powered vehicles for their vehicles other than police. There have been solared powered trucks on the streets of Belgium since i was a teen in the 60s. The large panels of these trucks plus most parking spaces covered with panels could provide an enormous amount of solar energy reserves.
      Solar power is of course already on many signs on roads and highways and u can joke to ur audience that if they had a ticket driving thru the red lite they may have gotten a photo snapped by a solar powered camera.
      Solar power is also on some ocean liners and luxury yachts, and not just for water heating only but to power the light and navigation equipment. Russians have a solar powered propeller airplane that lands on water and is in use in Venezuela.
      By now u had ur introduction and u can move on to the bigger picture: which countries are investing the most in solar and who will be the ones saving and who not. I bet u Al Gore has a website with lots of inspiration. U should also look into Australian sites and European like Spain, the leader in solar.
      Good Luck.

      Buy a bag of colored popcorn and pour some into a small bowl. Place it on the table along with a muffin tin. Have the child sort the different colors into each section of the muffin tin and name the colors.

      To teach counting & number recognition --
      Give the child a deck of playing cards and ask the child to sort by putting all the 1's in a pile, 2's in another pile and so on. The child could also lay the cards out in a row by number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and so on.

      Another idea for counting & number recognition --
      Cut 2 old pages from a calendar. Leave 1 page intact. Cut the squares apart on the second page. Have the child place the loose numbers on the page to match the numbers. The loose numbers can also be used to place in numerical order.

      To teach writing numbers, letters or name --
      Spray some shaving cream on the kitchen table and smear it around. Let the child write in it with his finger -- easily "erase" by smearing over it.

      To teach sorting by category --
      Cut pictures out of magazines and have child sort into groups -- animals, plants, foods, transportation, clothing, etc.

      To teach printing of name --
      Print the name of the child, but use short dashes -- not solid lines. Then have the child trace over it following the dashes to write the letters, until the child learns how to form the letters. Then you can print the name in solid letters and just have the child copy it below.

  17. QUESTION:
    christmas present ideas?
    mom - she likes to cook and bake, she likes jewelery, i want to get her something that shell use a lot
    dad - he works outdoors, has a bunch of tools, hes really hard to shop for but what are good things for dads?
    brother - hes 15, sophomore in high school. he plays soccer, video games (wii), likes a few tv shows

    and im in college, so i dont have a ton of money to spend on everything

    • ANSWER:
      Mom- A kitchen appliance, a basket filled with ingredients bakers use a lot (cooking oil, flour, sugar, dough, salt, pepper, spices, etc). A pretty necklace, ring or bracelet that would go with a lot of her clothes and that she could wear at a fancy occasion and just going grocery shopping. Some craft stores offer baking classes and you could enter her into one of those! (I went to a gingerbread house one, lots of fun!)

      Dad- Hmmm. Since you already said he has a lot of tools I wouldn't go with that. Maybe some high-quality boots and some tough jeans since he works outdoors. This depends on the weather in your area but a coat that's not too big but will keep the cold out during winter would probably be appreciated. You could also get him a gift card to an outdoor appliance store like Home Depot or something similar.

      Brother- Get him some new equipment for soccer or a girft card to a place that has some. Maybe burn a CD with a video of him playing soccer and give it to him. Or maybe a framed picture of him making a goal or something. Buy him some new video games (making sure the store you get them from has a good return policy!) or something he's been wanting. Maybe buy him the firsts season or something of his fave TV show.

      Good luck and merry Christmas!

  18. QUESTION:
    need to know what to bring for college!?
    I'm going to be a freshman at college this fall and i have no idea what to bring. i know the basics like bedding, clothes, toiletries, storage. but anything else? please be specific. thanks a lot!!

    • ANSWER:
      Are you living in a dorm and are you going to have a single or a double??? We'll asume its a dorm. If it is a double, you need to get ahold of your roommate and right down a list of what you have and what you need and who brings what. Make sure the list is evenly priced, you don't want to end up bringing hundreds of dollars worth of stuff and they only bring what they already had. As for a single, which will be the same list you and your roomate, if have one will use. Will need a computer, printer, the stuff that goes with that ie: paper, ink, cables and what not. You will need a phone, answering machine, your cell phone, if have one, and the stuff for those. Your sheets, comforter, pillows. Folders and pens and pencils for class, a book bag. Ipod if you have it, cd player, cds, dvd player, tv, game systems, if any. Mini fridge and microwave, if you have room. Some easy food to make for snacks. Pictures of friends and family, reading material, if you like to read. Markers, crayons, artsy stuff, if you like to do that. Clothes for all wheather, shoes, a coat, hair stuff, shower stuff, towels, bowls and cups. I would get a shower catty for your shampoo stuff. Get a robe, it is better to hve one to go to the shower than a bath towl around you. GET shower sandels, people pee in dorm showers. A plant or a fish, they make things feel more like home. A rug, if you want, any decorations that you would like.. I just graduated from college.. Good luck

    im not into baby sitting btw =)

    but please help, im already working hard in school, but now i want to make sure that itll pay off.

    thanks guys

    • ANSWER:
      Here is a short list of summer jobs which you can create to generate income:

      1. Learn calligraphy so that you can provide handwritten invitations and thank you notes to prospective wedding parties, birthday celebrations, etc. Seek out clients through wedding planners at nearby churches and temples. A starter calligraphy kit usually runs around and anyone can easily pick up this skill. The going rate is usually per hand addressed item.

      2. Become a "poser" who assists wedding photographers in setting and arranging various individuals in group and single photographic positions. "Posers" carry around a sketch book of various sitting and standing poses which consists of onion skin overlays of various wedding pictures bound in albums. Again, contact local wedding photographers and wedding planners, accordingly. The hourly pay is around - per hour and you are often invited to attend all dining activities.

      3. Seek from your neighbors a gardner position which involves planting, weed removal, plant/tree trimming, light brush clearance. You will be using the neighbor's equipment and tools. Again, do not represent yourself as a lawn mower since there are any number of safety issues involved. A door-to-door solicitation of surrounding neighbors is required and you can charge between to per hour.

      4. Offer policing/removal or clearance of trash services to surrounding neighbors which involve trash pickup within nearby residential area. Limit the extent of pickup to small areas and be aware that there are no hazardous terrain or elements involved in this process. Again, a door-to-door solicitation of neighbors is in order. You can charge between .75 to .50 per hour.

      5. Acquire a set of window cleaning tools [a bucket, liquid window cleaner, sponge, squeegee, handle with an extension and a small step ladder] and solicit local businesses for your window cleaning services. However, be careful to limit the height of the window cleaning to no higher than one story. Charge per window panel.

      6. Become a proxy/stand-in for neighbors to allow delivery of goods and packages to your home/apartment. Acquire the authority to sign any receipt of incoming packages as an accepting neighbor. Charge per each package handled by you.

      7. Consider becoming a restaurant-cafe customer liaison by using your cell phone at restaurants-cafes to coordinate with the hostess to keep track of waiting customers. Whenever there's a very long period of time to activate a waiting list, you want to offer the restaurant your services so that customers do not have to stand around for any lengthy period of time. And when their name/assigned number comes up; you can call the upcoming customer's cell phone to tell them that they can return to the restaurant and be served. The call back fee is usually around [FAQ-ANSWER].50 cents on a per head basis. For example, a couple would be charged .00 while children under 6 would not be charged. Placement of a plaque which outlines your fee schedule near the hostess station is sufficient to garner attention of prospective customers who will value your services since they can do other activities outside of the restaurant -- often beyond the range of any inhouse paging system. You realize that everyone has a cellphone and why not take advantage of the connectivity to make the diner's experience worthwhile. The restaurant will also appreciate the added service you are providing as a customer liaison.

      8. Why not become a paid feeder servicing the disabled at nearby nursing, convalescent, assisted living/care centers and hospitals. It involves feeding food to patients who are unable to feed themselves. The starting rate is .00 per hour. The only downside is that one has to take precautions to wash one's hands after each feeding. A posting of your services [by a business card or flyer] on a reviewable bulletin board would be enough to generate customers. The paid feeder position is one of the fastest growing occupation at this time.

      Good luck!

  21. QUESTION:
    first commercial shoot. Tips!!?
    I`m doing my first commercial shoot next month a bit nervous. Its for a friend so if it doesnt work not that big a deal and they can get someone else (if they dont like my pictures). I`ll be photographing chefs in a kitchen (a very reputable culinary school in my area). Just looking for any advice that could help (equipment choices, poses, links that would help me).

    I`ll be using a Nikon D90. Lenses: 18-200mm, 50mm 1.4, 70-200mm 2.8 (probably wont be using that). I have an SB-800 flash and another cheaper off brand (stands and umbrellas for those). And 3 white lightning monolights with softboxes

    I was thinking of bringing two monolights with umbrellas

    Any tips?
    I figure I should study photos of chefs on the net and jot down down poses for them. ie chefs cutting vegetables, cooking over the stove, group shot infront of a counter, chef holding out a plate of food etc..
    Should I use a tripod? I have a feeling that the kitchen will be tight for space.

    • ANSWER:
      You have the equipment you need, but it seems that you forgot about using an assistant for helping you set up each scene, including lighting it.

      Make sure you follow the OSHA rules when it comes to running wires and using sand bags on all your lighting stands. Talk to your insurance guy and be sure you have a ,000,000 liability rider for this shoot (bill your client as part of your added expenses for the shoot)

      When I shoot large projects like this, I visit the site and map out a lighting plan for each setup and figure out what lighting equipment I will have to rent to supplement my standard lighting equipment
      That rental equipment is also billed to the client. I rarely use studio flash when shooting such a project. Lighting with standard incandescent lighting set ups is easier, since most theatrical lighting experts can not only supply the right light for the setting, but they will supply a lighting wizard as well. This is a great time to learn from the experts.

      Do your lighting survey of the important culinary processes, sketch basic lighting setups and basically write a shooting script so all goes smoothly once you start shooting for the brochure or for whatever these images will be used.

      Remember to shoot RAW + JPEG. If any of these images end up being printed on an offset press, the prepress folks will want a DNG file of each and those are produced when processing the RAW files.

      One thing you may want to carry with you is this colour balancing tool. Most of what you are shooting will include some mixed lighting so making sure that the end product is the correct colour, this can save a lot of time in post production.

  23. QUESTION:
    I don't know what my hobby is...?
    Well yeah, I've been trying to find out what I like. Every time I like something, I only like it for a period of time. Like If I try to write a story, I stop after 3 days. If I read a book, I get bored of it towards the ending. I try being creative, but I never have any awesome ideas. If I play a video game, I eventually get bored of it. I guess my hobby is sports, but it really doesn't feel like my thing. I have considered acting, but never really tried it.

    I just kind of feel like a loser since everybody around me has a passion for something and I don't :p

    So any suggestions on how to find what my hobby is?
    How did you find your hobby?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi:

      First off that bat ;to find your hobby. Do the following :

      1) write down what you want to learn and do?

      2) What you you like?

      3) What peek your interest ?

      4) How much time do you want to devote to it ?

      5) is it something ( your finish project) you plan on keeping or not?

      6) Are you going to use it.

      7) what do you like to collect?

      Based on what you told me above.

      I think the following would suit you : Painting, Pencil drawing, scrapbooking, pottery or cermaics, cake decorating, Collecting something, Photography with a camera. those are something you can do off and on when you feel like it

      By the way, your not a loser. You just have not found what your looking for in a hobby and your trying to find out what it is. and it okay to try this and that. Boredoom is part of the process; in finding what hobby your trying to find out what is right for you. Okay. We all done this and all been bored with all the other hobbie we thought was right, as well. So hang in there.

      Here my list of hobbies:

      Try woodworking, scroll sawing, Veerning, Intaria, craving, whittling, gardening, blacksmithing, knife making, rustic furniture making, Boat making, rock climbing, cabinet making. Paper mache, miniature model making Crocheting, Knitting ,Cross stitching, embroidery, sewing,Quilting, Photography, cave climbing. Rock climbing, antique collecting, Tool & die work,Glass blowing.
