    New k rend

    Have you asked the person that rendered it ? It's alright saying dry spell, it will need to be dry for a fair few consecutive days for it to dry back out, plus its not warm temps, if its does eventually dry out I'd seal it

    Base coat finish

    When I spatted it I didn't think it looked flat enough for my liking, just kept leaving lines, but then again I don't know how well tc covers any imperfections etc, so just ended up sponge floating it, he'd got some white base coat but realised he wouldn't have enough so orderd more but they...

    Mental health and depression

    This sounds like him, he's admitted he's wasted 5 years sat in his room playing his game, mothers absolutely nackerd and feels awful she can't tell my old man, he's old school and says things how they are straight up blunt, which is why he doesn't want him to know.

    Mental health and depression

    He's started to get out more to be fair, he even admits he needs to get out, so I think he is slowly getting out of his routine, he's always been a shy kid so I don't think that helps, also think he's work shy like I said he's been spoilt and had everything bought for him all his life so he...
