Last Saturday I started writing a new icon with a friend. Technically, we haven't actually started yet.
We needed to mix the paints with names like Halo Red and Sankir. This really didn't take all that long, we spent some time moving furniture, rewarding ourselves with guacamole (hey there was piano moving involved!) and poring over the instructions.
Then we mixed paint. The Halo Red took three attempts before we got it right.
Sunday, we start in earnest and I'll be continuing to share our progress as we go.
