  • Sincere interesting

    I'm sure everyone knows Paul Harvey and his blurbs and his news. This morning I found his blurb to be extra interesting. " Sincere" ...aparently and don't quote me..from two Latin words Sinia and Cerea, which means " Without Wax". Back in the Roman times, people would buy pottery from the local artisans, and we all know that pottery has a stamp from the artist on it...or at least back then it did. A really good artist would also have those two words inscribed onto his work, meaning that the pottery was wax used to repair or fill any cracks. Thus, "without wax". The locals would know these were the best artists...the were sinia cerea...or as we now know as Sincere! I a good job without any hidden mistakes, and your a sincere artist.

    I don't know Paul Harvey is at all, Jeff, but I'd heard that before so I guess it's accurate.the first word would be "sine" - still used, for example, in some legal jargon (in the UK at least). A trial can be set "sine die" - adjourned without a without a specific date for resuming ..

    I have no clue about the latin for wax but it sounds close to the French for wax "cire".

    Isn't language fascinating? lol

      Well that is one way to interpret that, word detective states otherwise but who knows anymore.

      "Most authorities trace "sincere" back to a different Latin word -- "sincerus," meaning "whole" or "pure." Probably based on the roots "sin" (one) and "crescere" (to grow), "sincerus" originally referred to a plant which was of pure stock -- not a mixture or hybrid -- and later came to mean anything which was genuine and not adulterated. "

        What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
        The bags seem easier on the surface.
        But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

        Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

        As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

        I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

        I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

        To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
