It works, what more can I say? Just don't put on multiple layers by accident as I did, I didn't know I was applying it correctly until the third time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding film, an artistic beauty., 2 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Turin Horse [DVD] (DVD)
The Turin Horse is a very special sort of film; it requires much concentration and to be watched in a silent room either by oneself or with a partner. This film is very, very slow and heavy viewing for film watchers who are not used to this type of artful, contemplative film. The imagery found here is breath taking; beautifully bleak is a term I like to use, for the likes of also the The Road and No Country for Old Men. Here though, the film is more or less set at one location; an old house in the countryside owned by an Old man and his daughter, who's lives are the same each day, morning and night they maintain the house, the turin horse, meals and bedding. The daughter in particular has a rough life, having to look after her father and work long hours.

The weather is relentless; an eternal storm blasts across the desolate landscape like an apocalyptic event; very little other characters are seen beyond the pair and the said turin horse, who has it's own part to pay in this nightmarish tale. The pair don't say very much, but what they do and the little they so say speaks volumes of their situation and mindset. You really get the feeling this pair or really struggling in life and want to know what it all means and what it is all about.

As well as that, the haunting score that plays throughout the movie repeatedly, almost maddeningly, creates a sombre and almost horror like atmosphere. After watching this film it really makes you think about life, death and all the bits in between; what it means to be alive and how we deal with what we've been dealt with in life. What awaits us after death? What will the world look like when we witness our own reckoning?

I would also highly recommend that you don't watch this film if you are slightly sleepy and late at night; it is hard going at times but the pay off is worth it - quite the film watching experience!

I bought this beeswax for leather working and craft; to smoothen the edges of my leather and protect them from fraying. Use a sander, sand paper or polisher to smoothen your edges with beeswax.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good colour and product, 2 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Try not to use so much of the dye, just dap it on with a moist cloth or rag and rub it into the leather carefully - DO NOT pour onto the leather, it is highly concentrated and should be watered down. If you put it on so thickly the dye can go an almost metallic green colour without being distributed properly across the leather material. I like the colour and product, thumbs up from me.

Protex World Paint Protection - Leather Sealant 250ml
Offered by ProtexWorld
Price: £15.48

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent project for protecting leather, 2 July 2013

Great for sealing leatherwork but bear in mind - it moisturises the leather to keep it protected so think twice about using it on hard boiled items of leather craft such as helmets and armour as it may soften the material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book!, 2 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great book and the variety of artwork is amazing; I particularly love how the book has to be turned over to read the other way for comic book strips and short stories, what a great idea. The consistent colour scheme of reds, black, blue and florescent green really makes a great impact too. Love it!
