Acrylic Carving

These animals were carved into the back of these
acrylic blocks.
They are nice to display in bathrooms or coffee tables.
Children like to look at them and as an art form
I really like to see how they were done.
Another way to do it is to take a carving and pour acrylic over it.
When the acrylic sets, the carving is pulled out thus leaving an
inverted carving which looks wonderful from the top side.

As I am writing this, my son called from the liquor store where he went to get a bottle
of something for a gift exchange party he is going to tonight.
He said someone tried to steal from the store .
The guy tried to run out of the store and in the doorway got into a scuffle
with two other guys. A woman got punched and fell to the floor and then the guy
stealing, seems to have stabbed
one of the guys he got into a scuffle with , ran out the door and drove off.
People got his license number
Now there is a big commotion and  no one knows how this stabbed guy is doing.
At this end we are listening to a Dad crying over the death of his little girl,
in Connecticut and the fake tears of the President of the United States.

Amidst all this calamity, people are still wishing people on the street,
 a Merry Christmas.
Stores are bustling as people prepare for their holidays.
You look and listen and all you can do is shake your head.
 I told my son to be careful and come home
The world is crazy.

'The world' is crazy' is an understatement. I'm glad your son didn't get hurt by the guy trying to rob the store.

The acrylic blocks are really neat.

George - I like shopping either late at night or early in the morning when there are no people or line ups.
But as you go to the car, people approach you for money and/or to take your cart because it has a looney in it and if they park it as a service, they get the dollar from it.It gets a little scary when they do this so I never go alone.Always need someone with me.

The world has always been crazy only there was no TV to tell you ! You didn't even know what happened in the next village or town !

Gattina - I agree. Sometimes it's best not to know because then people wouldn't get all these ideas to do these kind of things.

Life 101 - glad you are feeling better

I agree with Gattina. The internet can tell us almost any story mere minutes after it happens from halfway around the world.
