I have chosen to take archaeology studies after my management. I have always wanted to do it. Didn't get around to it before. But the work I am currently doing is just as dirty as excavation.
Today I have been working with drilling holes with little sharp cutters, powder brush.(brushing it off, and learning different techniques for cleaning edges. The people who sold me their kiln and molds. Told me that I have a talent for having soft touch, great working, steady handling -- so that it can sit in my hands while I work. So I can practice hard work on dolls and then complete the jaw that I have been making for someone who wants a Jack of blades and Bleach mask-- mixture. The work I do is alot of dust and powder.
I want to talk werewolf mystery and myth
Thank you jonibanti, I am most interested in learning about myth, King lycion (cursed for eating human flesh). Torn into pieces and hung on a wheel at a church. I have always had a passion for archaeology. Most of all I am using a quill with ink to write. I am use to doing a dirty job.
