I got a bit of work done over the weekend...

I'd been wanting to watch the Star Wars Trilogy Despecialized Edition for a while now. I tried watching on my PS5 when I first got them, but it didn't like the discs. Kept pausing every few minutes, going black, then starting back up. So I figured why not give it a try in a different player? I hooked up the Blu-ray player from the other room, popped in ANH, and started putting together cardbacks. By Sunday afternoon, I'd both wrapped up Return of the Jedi and my full run of customs.

I do have some other very good news to share! For a the past half-dozen customs I've been struggling with painting the coins. They stopped producing the gold paint I used on my early runs, and the replacement paint just didn't work well. The metal flakes that made the paint metallic would pool up and look bad, as you can see with the R5-D4 coins here. I figured I was just SOL and this is what the coins would be moving forward.

I'm thrilled to report that's not the case!

As a last desperate act, I decided to buy a new can of the gold paint. I figured maybe the first can was from a bad batch... or something. Chances were low, but what else could I try? I sprayed these coins with the new can, and it covered BEAUTIFULLY!

So now I feel really bad about all those previous coins that looked like crap. I never even considered it was just that can of paint was bad instead of the whole product line. So I have yet another regret to pile onto the thoughts that haunt me. At least I can take comfort knowing the coins will look great moving forward!
