    Hi PD,
    Thank you. No problem. :-)
    I just wanted to clarify that I wasn't making a specific recommendation for her to use red and black together.
    cheers

    Before starting any art always check your color space. Going from RGB to CMYK, espcially by just telling Illustrator to do so using the Document Color Mode to just toggle it, will not only screw up your...

    When you compare "insipid" to "strong and bright" it can come off as advice.
    Your research suggestion was in a different paragraph.
    That's how I red it.
    I apologize...

    Like I said, some of the older board machines don't do "small" well.

    When doing large format, do not expect "digital" print quality where "digital" means high-end...

    Hi there PD,
    Just for the record: I have not given advice to janetm1000 to make it a strong red and black.

    My suggestion to her was, "...to do further research into Chinese culture...

    Spray foam insulation contains isocyanates. Avoid skin contact and inhalation. That means gloves and respirator, even for small jobs.

    Common disposable vinyl or latex gloves are completely permeable to many compounds. Sometimes nitrile rubber gloves are necessary.

    Moisten a rag with acetone nail polish remover. Wipe any remaining foam from your hands.

    3
    Scrub your hands gently with a pumice stone if the spray foam has hardened onto the skin. Dip the pumice stone in warm, soapy water and rub it gently over the hardened spray foam. Continue doing this, dipping it in the soapy water frequently, until all of the foam is gone.

    4
    Apply a generous amount of petroleum jelly to your hands once all of the spray foam has been removed. Put on rubber gloves and leave them on for about one hour. Remove the gloves and wash your hands with soapy water. This will restore any moisture lost during the removal process.


    Tips & Warnings
    Do not clean your hands with water when removing wet spray foam. The water will only cure the foam faster.
    I would advice against this. Cured polyurethane is fairly inert. Trying to dissolve it would only cause more damage, both from the solvents and possibly from chemicals that you release from the foam. If possible leave it until the epidermis sheds naturally.

    Use a moisturizing cream (not food products) daily, not just after the damage is done. Otherwise the skin will lose its protective ability.

      Got any pots and pans that need scrubbing? Do those and your hands will get done at the same time. Just remembered the last time I used steel wool without gloves. My hands were sore afterwoods. Gloves would have been preferable.
      It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

        Don't know if you've found a solution yet, but my husband suggests using super glue (he says it will dissolve the foam) or soak it in Coca Cola (the mild acid will weaken the bond).

        Either way, good luck.
        Shop smart. Shop S-Mart.

          Polyurethane is used to coat chemical tanks because of its high resistance. There is nothing that is safe for skin contact that will dissolve polyurethane.

            Typos are very important to all written form. It gives the reader something to look for so they aren't distracted by the total lack of content in your writing.

              Lumberjack, when you mention Isocyanates and Respirator in the same sentence it's best to mention a REAL respirator, properly fitted with a freshly applied organic filter. Not a dust mask.

                Sorry I just got back to this, was a busy weekend. Lots of too late but still useful advice

                The Gasoline took 90% of it off and the rest which was kind of a thin film mostly wore off over the weekend. I still have a few spots between my fingers. The best advice in this thread is don't get your hands wet before trying acetone or gas or whatever. Trying soap and water first turned it rock solid.

                  Some great tips here. Including something to add to my list of "what NOT to bring to an orgy". (And it's not mayonnaise.)

                    Only as our slaves. But we're cool with that.
