so tommy , i hear alot of good things about hydro guard. i have a shower to reseal . does this stuff hold up good to water ? how about sinks? i used buddy rhodes sealer on a sink, it only held up for 6 months. this stuff sounds like its as easy to apply as buddys sealer but lasts a bit longer and is acid resistant. easy to strip? id love to hear your honest opinion

looking good on the tops Tommy, very impressive as always. I took an idea you had with the clay over a sink base and thne textured it ... and applied a couple coats of resin to make it stiffer, to pour my rustic basin sink. Any ways keep being Tommy.

Hi Tommy , Pissed that once again, I won't be able to get to Marco's fundraiser . I hope that the event makes a big difference to Marco, both mentally and financially, and everyone would be so lucky to have someone on their side such as you are for Marco .

Hey Tommy! I started a photo diary of the application of Hydro Guard on a panel that Steve at Absolute had given me. I am hoping this will open up Q & A for all. Also like i have told you and others I am just a tourist here so any guidance would be greatly appreciated and welcomed! The finished sample is to be used for a 36 hour test of "Sealer" pains. Examples: red wines, hot sauce, lemons, etc. Please take a look and guide this tourist in the right direction! I will be asking others to do the same!

Hi Tommy

The course Jim gave down in Melbourne, Australia was excellent.

A bit of a "suck it and see for" Jim as we haven't the vast array of products you guys have on your side of the pond.

I had no idea what to expect from the course; but I came away with Mix Design Knowledge, concepts in Fabric Forms and mould making as well as inspiration.

In short the course was bloody great mate!

I'm now just awaiting product delivery so as to put in to practice what I have learnt.

I keep you posted in regards to progress.

Thanks for the out of the blue friend request now beginning to feel part of a community.

Cheers Paul

Hey, Tommy.  I would love to show up for the playday.  I'm not sure yet how that will pan out.  I just saw your message.  A long time ago, I accidentally set up another profile page.  It just sits there abandoned.  That's the one you left your message on.  Sorry about the confusion.  Someday I'll figure out how to get rid of it.

Hi Tommy, Happy Easter.

Was hoping you could help me out of a jam i am in.  i made countertops for a client last year and the piece with the sink cut out had the sealer fail (eap) and then cracked around the thin part around the sink (pretty sure becouse i used too big diameter rebar) . Anyway i made a new one and ruined it also. the countertop is around 11' long so i have to seam the melimine, so i placed the melimine seam in the middle of the sink knock out so there would be only about 5" in the front and back of the sink. i covered the bondo with a water based shelac as suggested by some of the guys on the forum and it discolored and turned the surface porous where i painted the shlac over the bondo. so now i have the melimine seamed and don't know what to cover the bondo with. i jamed the melimine together and glued, beveled the edges a bit and bondo. there is about a strip about 3/16" wide of bondo. HELP PLEASE driving me crazy and customer would like to have their top sometime. One more thing will this clay be ok for the corners and radisus........chavant - oil based clay.

thanks Al
