Pipettes and syringes (siphon in and out water to clean them) .

You can buy pretty large packs of them on amazon for relatively cheap.

EDIT: curved syringes for the weird shaped bottles.

I don't know what paints to use. I only have GW paints at my disposal.

Yeah, Lahmian medium is great. That will probably work better than the Vallejo TBH.

EDIT: if you're airbrushing with GW paints, get yourself some of these:

Makes it a lot easier to get the right proportions of paint/thinner when you can measure. I haaaate the idea of literally pouring paint into the airbrush cup.

Halloween swirl paint job [R]

Eighth swirl attempt. Trial and error = improvement.

It's an aluminum enclosure, so paint adhesion is always a potential problem. I used self-etching primer - it chemically etches the surface of the aluminum, providing a good base coat that other paints can stick to.

After that, I put down a base coat of intense orange. I've found that swirled paint jobs tend to have a lot of see-through areas, so you want to plan the bottom layer strategically. I let this dry for about 3 days before I proceeded to the dip because enamel spray paints stay tacky for so long.

For dipping, I put a large plastic trash bag into a 3 gallon bucket before adding the water. The trash bag prevents paint from mucking up your bucket, which is important if your bucket is also used for serving chilled canned beverages at fabulous summer barbecues.

I filled the bucket with room temperature water. I added 7.5g Borax per liter of water to reduce the surface tension and allow the paint to flow over the water's surface.

For paints, I used Humbrol brand enamel paints. I was able to find them at my local hobby shop even though they weren't listed as a retailer on the Humbrol website. They should be available at most serious hobby / model airplane stores, as they're one of the classic brands of model paint that have been around almost since plastic models appeared on the market.

If doing 3-color swirls, I think think one could dip about 10 pedals from three 14mL cans of paint. The consistency should be like warm syrup: not thin like water, but able to drip or drizzle off the end of a coffee stir stick (the smaller size makes them easier to use than a popsicle stick because the cans are so little). Stir really well. If too thick, thin with mineral spirits / white spirit. I dropped it in with a plastic pipette - about 10-30 drops were required, depending on how thick the paint was. (I also tried thinning with white gas / naphtha, but it did not work as well. Despite the similarity in name - white spirit vs white gas - they are not equivalent!)

I'm going to stop posting links now; the section above is where I had the most trouble finding quality instruction in the Internet when I was figuring out how to do this, but there are plenty of YouTube videos that demonstrate the actual swirling/dipping process described below.

I drop the paints into the water by dipping a stir stick into the paint and letting it drip off the end into the water. Drop the paints into the water from as close to the surface as possible - if you drop from too high, the paint will plunge through the surface and sink to the bottom. The first few drops on the surface might thin out into a fine sheen on the surface of the water, but eventually they'll saturate the surface with a fine layer of paint and you'll be able to start getting good dots and ropes of color. I noticed that different colors seem to behave differently as they hit the surface - it's smart to try some experimental dips to master your paints before actually dipping your enclosure.

Work quickly. The paint is drying on the surface of the water even as you drop it in. It doesn't even take a minute for a thin coat of floating paint to tack up.

Swirl carefully with a stick to make your designs and move the paint where you want it. Be aware that the more you swirl, the more paint you will end up with on your stir stick instead of on your work piece.

Dip your pedal slowly and carefully (on the end of a stick or a coat hanger so your hand doesn't end up getting swirled too). The paint will be pulled onto the surface of the pedal and dragged underwater with the pedal. After it's completely submerged, use crunched up newspaper to clear an open spot on the surface of the water to pull the pedal back out so it doesn't end up with swirls on top of swirls.

Pull the pedal out. Blow or shake the water off. By the time you're finished doing that, thin areas of paint will basically be dry, medium areas will be tacky, and thick areas will be on their way. Hang it up to dry in a wind/dust free area.

If you hate it, wipe it off with mineral spirits within an hour or two and start over.

If you like it, let it dry a couple days and then top coat with something tough.

boofing crystal? Swallowing it? Sublingual? [R]

2 years, 10 months agoMay 9, 2017

So i got some tweak a few days ago... some of you might remember my rambling posts on here from that night.. anyways today i just copped .8 and i don't wanna smoke it like i did last time.. way too fiendish i sit and smoke for hours and do hella weird things around my house.. so i just snorted a line of this and its much chiller last longer and less fiendish...

Anyways I'm wondering how boofing it is? How much would i boof ? like .1 or so? Also is swallowing it a good way to use it? And does sublingual work? Which of these would yall say is the best and most efficient and least fiendish like smoking?

Thanks everybody! have a good day/night!

these work too

yeah boofing shard is glorious!

I don't really swallow my meth because it's kind of a waste imo. I only did it once on accident my first time smoking crystal and I didn't melt it in the pipe so i inhaled everything i packed and swallowed it. That fucked with me because I had to stay up the next day because there was no chance of me getting sleep that day.

Meth has a strong burning taste i'd rather shove it up my ass than hold it in my mouth.

This is the advice that /u/gzprime gave me: >I like the Rit Dymore (has to be the Dyemore version) for a few different reasons. The number one reason is convenience, it is pre-mixed and there for ready to go. It has far less warnings and caustic information than the iDye Poly. I find the iDye Poly hard to blend in small batches and have been having better results as of late withe Rit Dyemore.

>I'm pretty comfortable with dyeing keycaps. You can see some of my work here: ( You'll want the Rit Dyemore that comes in a bottle, premixed in the black color. I would use disposable pipettes to measures 1-3ml of dye for the initial bath/shade (

>If they're PBT caps, you can bring the water to soft boil, add the caps and then just babysit them until you get the shade you're looking for. Then I'd use the pipette to add additional dye for the next shade and babyit that as well, repeating the process until you've got all the shades you're looking for.

>I'd also strongly suggest starting off with a series of test caps so you can get the timing, concentration, and process down pat. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions and good luck!

If you're looking to do a gradient type dye with one color like what I did, I would strongly recommend using both as little water as possible and as little dye as possible for your first shade. The longer the cap is in the dye bath the more even and consistent the color, but the darker it gets. Use lots of test caps to figure out the exact length of time to consistently get the shade you're looking for before proceeding. And I've found tapping the strainer up and down so that the caps jiggle around in the dye bath without being lifted out of it helps to make the color look more consistent.

Question on timings of tinctures [R]

3 years agoryleyg posted submission on bitters.
March 15, 2017

So I was wondering if there is an issue with "over-infusing" some tinctures. I'm currently steeping ingredients separately in jars with everclear so I can later combine them to make bottles and just generally get a taste for each ingredient. I'm noticing some infuse quicker than others and was wondering if there is a problem with over saturation?

March 17, 2017

Alcohol is going to immediately overwhelm your sense of smell if inhaled through the nose. Inhale through your mouth and exhale through your nose. This takes advantage of the retro-nasal mechanism, which is part of the complex system of how you taste. To actually taste the tincture, I put a few drops in a small glass of soda water. Plastic pipettes work great for this.

Original Recipes [R]

I originally got into DIY to make Grack Juice and Shurb v4 (instead of dropping $20/30mL at a local B&M) and since then, I've spent at least $600 in concentrates alone. It has only been 6 weeks...I have 1 original recipe. Literally everything I've thought I wanted to try to make on my own already exists somewhere. I've been a chef for 6 years and in the kitchen, it's not hard at all to put my own twist in a recipe and make it better. But it seems that originals and the twists have been applied to everything. Is it just lack creativity on my end or have we just reached a point where basically everything has been done or overdone (i.e. strawberry creams)?

First batch building water [R]

3 years agoolsondc posted submission on Homebrewing.
March 3, 2017


On Sunday I plan to brew a familiar recipe, but this time I've decided to experiment with "building my water".

The recipe in question is a Robust Porter:

  • 10 lb Pale Ale Malt
  • 12 oz Caramel 40L
  • 12 oz Chocolate Malt
  • 8 oz Special B Malt
  • 6 oz Black Patent Malt

  • 60 min 0.75oz Magnum

  • 15 min 0.50oz East Kent Golding

  • Flame-Out 0.50oz East Kent Golding

I plan to start with store bought RO water so I can basically just build up from zero. I've watched the tutorials on Brun Water and read a ton of advice online, and ultimately have decided to just follow this template:

Since I'll be brewing a porter, it sounds like 1tsp of Calcium Chloride (per 5 gallons of water used) should be sufficient.

A few questions:

  1. I want to dial in my mash pH as close to 5.2 as possible. Instead of going the acidulated malt route, I picked up lactic acid. As I understand, my recipe grain bill should push my mash pretty low by itself, so I'll measure the pH before adding any acid. For those that use lactic acid, do you just use a dropper and add a drop or two to your mash, stir, and measure? How far does 1 drop go?

  2. I batch sparge. After running this recipe through my calculator it looks like I'll be doing 5.4 gallons (mash) and 3.6 gallons (batch). Should I add my salts to the HLT or the mash (before the grain)?

  3. Also, since my initial mash is just over 5 gallons, should I just go with an even 1tsp of Calcium Chloride and then just ballpark a little less than 1tsp of Calcium Chloride for my batch water?

  4. I know a mash pH of 5.2 is important during your initial mash for efficiency, but what about during your batch? Should I still try to dial in the "5.2"?

Any other suggestions?


I decided to just dive deep into EZ Water Calculator and...that really wasn't so hard. Since I was starting with RO water, I just zeroed everything out. I inputted my grain bill (although that was a little bit of guess work because I wasn't quite sure what things like Chocolate Malt would fall under. I did some research on my grain bill and did my best.

I wound up doing 4g of Gypsum, 4g of Calc Chloride, and 4g of Epsom Salt. (no treatment to sparge water) That put my mineral content all in the green. Pretty easy stuff -- minus the stuck sparge (but that's another story altogether)...

For measuring liquids I use 3ml plastic transfer pipettes because you can draw, measure, and dispense in one step. You can pick up a pack of 100 for just a few bucks. They also come in handy for mixing small amounts of Star San.

Haven't done models since I was a kid. Sorry for possible dumb question. Where can I buy paints like this? What kind of paints are good for this kind of kit? [R]

Making AVB capsules with a slowcooker [R]

3 years, 6 months agoRelaxingOnTheBeach posted submission on eldertrees.
Sept. 6, 2016

Hi all. I'm buying some "00 capsules" off of Amazon and have a general idea of how to do this, but hoping some discussion can come from it from those who have done this.

I researched via reddit and YouTube and there are 2 ways to do it, as far as I know.

Slowcooker method:

  1. Grind your AVB to powder
  2. Put coconut oil in slowcooker (~3 tablespoons per gram, but would like to hear what you all think)
  3. Put AVB in
  4. Mix it up and heat on low for 2-3 hours
  5. After 2-3 hours, let cool for about 10-15 minutes.

The second method:

  1. Pour out AVB
  2. Mix in coconut oil (~3 tablespoons per gram)
  3. Mix mix mix
  4. Pour into capsules

Now here is where I'm confused, for either method - do I strain the 'oil' and just use that to fill the 00 capsules, or do I use it as it is without straining it?

I have never done this. I hope this is something that will hit as hard as vaping, at the least. I am just expecting it to give me a small body/head buzz.

What are you using as a dropper? I use 3ml pipettes after trying a few other things and they are perfect for it. They have a large enough hole and suction power to pull up thick, goopy oils and precisely and easily fill a gel cap.

How to properly measure paint percentages? [R]

Hi everyone!

I was wondering if there's a better way to mix paint than eyeballing it? Sometimes the percentages are a little difficult to measure without any tools and I end up spending a LONG time trying to match the color of the guide.

Thanks for your help!

The best way to mix and measure paint is to use disposable plastic pipettes or syringes. This way you can properly calculate and mix the ratios. You could also use mixing jars like the tamiya ones but I wouldn't recommend those unless you were mixing a lot of paint.

DIY shopping list - deals + vaping "cliffnotes" [R]

3 years, 11 months agogoatnapper posted submission on electronic_cigarette.
April 2, 2016

I want to share the fruits of my research and deals-searching for others wanting to get into DIY.

This is a best deals list, as well as quick education and tips list.

Why DIY? Your juices can cost as little as +60ml / $1, as opposed to 1.1ml / $1 (brick and mortar) or 3ml / $1 (online). There are equipment costs to consider, but well worth it in the long run, and not that expensive at all, as I will show you.

If you know of better deals, PLEASE SHARE! =D I’m not ego-attached to my list, claiming it’s the best or anything silly like that.

(helpful shopping knowledge in parentheses) Shipping and tax not included in my list. There are many variables for variation. Expect typical costs But and have free shipping for order high order amounts, which was the case with me when I bought these items from them. takes weeks to ship outside of the vicitiny of China Always a bit cheaper with some coupon codes. Look for them first.


Reuleaux DNA200 with 3 free LG HE4 batteries (and free shipping). $150 (OK, i splurged here. You don’t have to) (A steal if you’re looking to buy this expensive mod with the DNA200 chip, and batteries) (Keep in mind, mods with displays can double up as resistance measurers when building, so you don’t have to buy a separate resistance measurer, or use an actual multi-meter with pokey leads)

Other options:

Reuleaux RX200 $40 ( takes 3 batteries ) ( goes up to 150W, handles basically anything )

$47 Disguiser ( takes 2 batteries ) ( goes up to 150W, handles basically anything ) ( can’t vape while charging, not that that will be particularly important to most people )

BATTERIES ( watch this vid for quick understanding and how to decide which batteries to buy. Look at the video notes for the super quick approved list ) ( and super duper in depth, and well-organized info about batteries in general ) ( you can get really high spec batteries (40 A, 4000mAH for much more, like $15 each. But figure out if you really need them for your mod, and the way you’ll be vaping)

Reputable vendor, good prices, wide selection:

TANK(S) (i look for topfill, juice control, airflow control, and ease of operation of them - stopping as opposed to spinning 360)

only velocity styled deck (two post design or roomier) listed:

Aromamizer Supreme (best imo) (complete juice sealing when deck is removed) (graded juice flow - like a light dimmer as opposed to a light switch) (Best price here)

Griffin 25 (solid solid tank) 1 or 2 coili option via ceramic block that redirects airflow to a single coil (Best price here)

$24 TF-RTA G4 or G2 swivel topfill design 4 coils, or 2 coils

Crius clone (slide out topfill design) $16

WIRE / COILS ( look for a price at least better than 6 ft / $1 ( AKA 30ft (or roughly 10m) / $5 ) This channel has the best info about wires regarding material safety for inhaling - smart man, and seriously well researched info )

$20 / 550 ft ( AKA $1 / 27ft ) Various gauges of Kanthal only ( no pre-twisted or clapton ) (One hell of a deal that I failed to notice.)

$13.7 / 150 ft ( AKA $1 / 11 ft ) Various materials (but no titanium), including pre-built clapton and pre-twisted

$6 / 25 ft ( AKA $1 / 4.25 ft ) Titanium wire


(certain cotton affects the flavor. Apparently organic cotton is a good option to bypass that)

Organic Cotton: $7 for 30 sheets 2.75in (~70mm) x 3.50in (~75mm)


Tweezers: (cerami tips ftw, for heat resistance)

$3.20 Vaper Tweezers (ceramic tip, durable, grips for 22mm and 25mm diameter tanks as well as for drip tips

Screwdrivers and allen keys:

(generally there is no need to buy them. Most tanks or RDA you buy will have the tools for them, if they’re allen keys. If it’s a phillips screwdriver, whatever. I’m sure you can find some anywhere. Not really vape shopping discussion material)


(make sure precision to 0.01g not 0.01oz Approx 30 g = 1oz But in product descriptions, they will say 0.001oz or 0.01g precision ) (use the scale to mix by weight, not by volume, looking at syringes. More accurate. Speeds things up and makes things convenient) (most liquids all have very similar density, so measuring by weight won’t introduce drastic differences compared to mixing by volume)

$14 Small 0.01g (0.001oz) precision scale)


(I’ve read that the markings sometimes come off if you get your juice liquid on them. If you’re using a scale, it shouldn’t matter). ( I prefer 1ml syringes for the precision of 1 / 10ml precision. That probably doesn’t matter, since you use a scale to weigh the volume instead. I can see the argument for using a 3ml or 10ml syringe, especially if you’re making large quantities at a time. But starting off, I’m looking to mix and try so many flavors that I’ll probably be using smaller quantities anyway). (use for flavor concentrates. VG and PG are mixed in larger quantities, so you’ll want faster dispensing than using syringes. Remember, you have the scale to tell you how much you put in) ( people recommend those squeeze ketchup and mustard bottles, but I figure, why pay for that? The tips are also easy to lose and leak. Instead, clean out any pump dispenser bottle you probably have around the house, whether it’s a small soap bottle or a larger shampoo bottle.)

$7.50 1ml syringes pack of 100

$8 3ml syringes pack of 100

Syringe blunt tips:

( you don’t want actual sharp hypodermic needles. Hence blunt tips) ( VG is thicker than PG, so small diameter tips like 18 gauge may not be ideal for VG. But probably fine for concentrated flavors - share your experiences if I’m wrong! ) ( gauges and their actual inner diameters ) ( higher gauge is smaller diameter )

$2.60 18 gauge stainless steel blunt tips (I figure they’re cheap, so I might as well get nice durable ones, rather than cheap plastic ones.) (larger radius sizes available in related products)

JUICE BASES - PG, VG (vg lasts shorter than PG for storing over time)

$37.5 + ~$10 (shipping 1 gal PG 1 gal VG (higher sizes at even cheaper rates available at (nicotine river is a site withone of the best prices I’ve seen in general and for flavors as well)

37.50 ~$9 (shipping) 1 gal PG 1 gal VG

FLAVOR CONCENTRATES (think in terms of ml / $, but also how concentrated it is vs other concentrates - lower recommended percentage is generally stronger, obviously) (diketones (e.g. (diacetyl, acetoin, acetyl propionyl) are the three chemical you may want to avoid. Diacetyl causes permanant scarring to the smallest parts of your lungs, effectively reducing your breathing capacity by that much) (yes, vaping is safer than smoking by far, but some people like myself are coming from no smoking at all to vaping, So it’s a step up in health damage, not down.) ( pretty well-sourced reddit thread ) (why are diketones added? For creamy flavor

Really good prices ml (all of their lineup contain no diacetyl - not sure about the other diketones)

41 variety pack of nicvape's entire flavor lineup (all diketone free, and explicitly labeled and quantities marked if any specific flavor do have any) $76

Good prices per ml (but more expensive shiping) AKA (all diketone free, and explicitly labeled and quantities marked if any specific flavor do have any)

Going to recommend some pipettes over the syringes. You also only got two (unless I missed it), so you will be cleaning them a LOT.

Or put your flavorings into LDPE dripper bottles and just squeeze them in (my preferred method). Would still use pipettes for the nicotine though, I hated cleaning syringes.

Need help making canna caps. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. [R]

Haha, potheads need math too, bro. ;)

Yeah what i'd do is measure out your 328mL of oil and heat it up - not too hot, but to, say, body temp or so. I'd have it warmed up so that when your bho comes out of the oven you can stir it in. Make sure you get it incorporated as completely as possible - you want each cap to be similar so that the effects are predictable.

Because I don't like wasting oil and such, I'd get a couple of these transfer pipettes (100 is too many, but it's only $3):

I'd also get a Cap-M-Quik filler; if you try to fill them individually you'll quickly discover how annoying it is, haha.

Let me know how it all turns out.

Hey guys been vapin for 2 years now and decided I don't wanna pay the rediculous prices for juice. So I'm gonna try diy. I've been doing some research for a couple days now and have a good grasp on what pg/vg to get and stuff like that. I have many questions and would like some help. Haven't ordered my ingredients yet, trying to get more familiar with what flavors are good to order. Any suggestions would be great. Thank you

First, watch this, then come back: How to make your own E-Liquid : Mixing by Weight - DIY Tutorial I hate youtube tutorials, and I still recommend this, so seriously, watch it.

Now, a warning. You can spend a tiny amount to start DIY, or you can just take the plunge and spend a good chunk, but be set for a while and the cost per ml drops even more.

So you'll need supplies. Other than nicotine and flavorings, Amazon works pretty well.

I put my PG and VG into some squeeze bottles I found at wal-mart for $0.97. Makes dispensing them super easy (just like in the video). You can also find them on Amazon for slightly more, but Walmart is on the way to work, so I just stopped there.

I put my flavors into dripper bottles, which I got from Heartland Vapes, but that only works if you want 100+. Free shipping is at $75, so I also threw flavors into my orders, since I'd need them anyway. Personally, I started with single flavor juices that I knew I'd like. I ordered a lot from MtBakerVapor, and most of their flavors are just single flavor FlavorWest (FW) stuff, so I grabbed them. I made those for a month, then I started buying more flavors (like my favorite, TFA Chai). Now I'm adding more flavors into my juices, judging on what I think would work well (it doesn't always). Start simple, then build on what you learn.

Buy some nicotine from your preferred vendor, if you want nicotine in your juice.

Then wait impatiently while USPS loses your package in San Diego, CA, during which you can download the calculator and experiment with it. The bottom calculator on the side bar is amazing. Now you're going, "Crap, I gotta weigh my liquids!". Well, not really. You can take the specific gravities off the manufacturer data sheets (sometimes there, sometimes right, don't trust the ones from FW), google them, or ask here and someone probably has them. Or, you can use the built-in weights for PG and VG, and then set your flavors to 1ml = 1g. It's close enough.

Most of all, remember to have fun.

Quick tip: Better not enough flavor than too much. Too much flavoring mutes the flavor, not enhances, and spearmint burns your lips when you add too much. You can always add more, you can't take away.

Nov. 25, 2015

I have dabbled in the past with DIY and while I made a bunch of tolerable juices, I wasn't as dedicated to DIY as I would have liked to be.(due to a half assed starter kit I purchased... doh!)

With all the sales coming up I'd like to get properly started. I enjoy any and all fruit flavors, but tend to stray away from the sweet, candy-like fruit flavors. I especially like cactus, guava, and passionfruit. I was wondering if y'all could suggest a set of "starter flavors" that would fit my fruit obsession without being overly sweet.

Any vendors come to mind that have great nicotine, a lot of INW flavors along with other flavor companies, have bottles and mixing equipment all at a reasonable cost?(upcoming sale?)

I know this must have been asked a million times, but my terrible searching skills have failed me once again :(

EDIT: Thanks for all the help everyone!! I spread out my order across ECX, and amazon. A friend gave me 30ml of 100mg/ml nic in 100%PG from NudeNic for me to try out so I wound up ordering 120ml 100mg/ml 100%PG from ECX as a tester.(I never realized how cheap DIY actually was)

120ml of 100mg/ml in 100%PG, 1L PG, 1L VG, ~25 flavors inc TFA, FA, FW, CAP, INW, and LorAnn. I also picked up a bunch of 15 and 30ml unicorn bottles.

Time to get my hands dirty, and thanks for the help y'all! Hopefully I'll have something more to contribute in the future!

First mead, question on testing and racking [R]

4 years, 4 months agocaptainwacky91 posted submission on mead.
Nov. 20, 2015

So last month I picked up an Ambrosia Farms mead kit and some local honey from the PA ren faire. Tomorrow is going to be the 7th day fermenting and the kit advises to siphon a bit to test if it's reached the balance of sweet/dry you want.

What I wasn't able to find really was any details about how to approach the siphoning. I do have an auto siphon and hose but my concern is with just extracting a small amount. The siphon's package shows other products: a wine-thief looks to be it but can I use an alternative life a clean (sanitized even if needed) disposable straw? Also in general either way I'm worried about disturbing/sucking up the froth and floating lees (if that term is being used correctly). And the last thing is in regards to the sieve. I was thinking to use a layer of cheese cloth in a funnel but I'm worried if flow from the carboy will outpace the filter.

I was thankful for finding a rather helpful video on youtube that helped but this video, the kit's site's own instructions and FAQ page didn't really address these points.


Question 1. What do I use in substitution of a wine-thief to taste test? Will a sanitized disposable straw suffice?

Question 2. Worried about the stuff that floats at the top getting in the way of siphoning or being disturbed?

Question 3. How should I go about filtering from carboy to mazer?

7 days is too early to get an accurate tasting.

Also, I'd suggest you buy some of these bad boys.

I've seen them for sale at plastic modeling hobby shops and Sally's Beauty Supply.

Idk if they're "food safe", but if paint and thinner can't dissolve it, neither should mead and/or starsan.

TIFU (Fountain Pen Edition): The Syringe Problem [R]

4 years, 4 months agoNov. 18, 2015

We've all got those nervous glances from friends/family when random syringes appear, generally in bathrooms. Usually, it can all be explained away. In the grand tradition of TIFU's, this actually happened about 3 weeks ago, but I was a little busy to post.

Context: I go went to a very religious, very conservative, all girls private school in the snobby part of town. We were in the middle of the final exam block, which is worth 50% of our university-entrance-mark. As you can imagine, it's very stressful. Naturally, on the morning of my Eco exam, I wasn't really thinking when I stuffed my pencil cases in my bag. I actually have three pencil cases - one for ballpoints/pencils/calculator, one for fountain pens/cartridges/ink, and a clear plastic one which I use for exams (mandatory anti-cheat measure). The FP one usually stays at home. A couple ink syringes are included in the FP one, just in case.

On arrival, I sat with my friends, we all started revising, I sorted out my stationary into taking-in or leaving piles. All normal.

A teacher came around to see how we were going, saw my fountain pen accoutrement and did a quadruple take. No biggy, it's fairly unusual, I didn't think twice about it. Teacher leaves. I go do my exam. Three hours later, we exit, triumphant and somewhat nauseous.

What I didn't know was that the teacher had seen my ink syringes, and had a major freak out. She had spoken to my year mentor, who had spoken to the head of academia, who had spoken to the headmistress, who had summoned the school counsellor, and called my parents.

By the time I had finished the exam, a full blown intervention was waiting outside. It took more than 4 hours of demonstrations, referencing, the poor, confused French exchange student being called to explain (she also used FPs), 'personal' sessions with various teachers/counsellors, and about 20 million reassurances that this was a 'safe place' before the school was finally convinced that I was not, in fact, doing heroin to cope with my exams but just had eccentric tastes in stationary.

My parents thought it was hilarious. My friends are still not over it. I've resolved just sort my stationary the night before.

TL;DR: Exam stressed, brought ink syringes to school. Got accused of drug use. Major drama.

Edit: Spelling/Grammar. It's been a long three weeks, OK?

You can also try using a micropipette (they come in packs of 100 for $2.78 @ amazon), but they admittedly do not break down as nicely as a syringe does.

But even with blunt-tipped syringes (I have a few at work), I still get looks/questions from people asking if I take insulin. As I'm rinsing out some "Tears of a Clown" in the sink.

Learning to make my own E-Juice!! [R]

4 years, 4 months agogoatnapper posted submission on DIY_eJuice.
Oct. 25, 2015

Hello everyone, the name is CynicalSilas. New to the whole vaping thing, about 5 months now. Ok, I guess I'm not THAT new, but I do have some confusions that float around my head. Probably the same confusions that every new vapist (vapist? Vaporist..? Sounds dirty) has at one point in time during their transition to a new habbit (I.E. resistance in Kanthol and how it effects the flavor/heat/etc., wrapping 2 coils exactly the same, except..wait, 1 is 1.5 ohm and the other is .1 and now my mod is on fire??). I'm a newbie in the sense that I haven't been doing this for a very long time, there are some things that I want to learn. Making my own E-Juice is one of them. Now, I vape a hell of a lot, I cut back from smoking, I used to be at 3 packs a day. In the last 5 months, I've been able to cut down to around 1-5 smokes a week. Certain things have kept me from fully quitting (although, this time I'm doing a lot better. 2 weeks strong no smokes) such as having to buy the coils on my Tank (Aspire Atlantis and UWell Crown) which I have remedied by rebuilding the coils (still have some leaking issues here and there, but this isn't bad). The biggest problem that I have is that It's becoming increasingly expensive because I vape a lot. So I'm burning through a 30mL bottle of juice in a matter of 2-3 days. So, I am venturing into the world of creating my own E-Liquids. TL;DR - Life story here, below are the actual questions I have.

Now, I've spent the last 2 weeks or so researching how to make my own juices. All in all, it's pretty simple to my understanding, you have (now correct me if I'm wrong) PG (throat hit), VG (vapor production), Nicotine (if desired), Flavors. There are a few things I'm still pretty lost about which I can't seem to find the right information to clear up those questions in my head. You know that feeling where you read about the answer or find the answer somewhere but still feel like you don't know the right information or all of it? Yeah, that's kind of what I'm feeling right now. The first question I had is what's up with the PG/VG/Nicotine mix? How does using a mix vs a full grade nicotine effect the recipe?

Example: You have a bottle of full nicotine (not sure what to call it, maybe the answer is as simple as all nicotine is a mix of some kind, no?) and it requires .06mL (or something similar) for a 15mL bottle. Instead, using a mixture of Nic/PG/VG, does it change that figurative number above to a larger amount in the recipe? I'm honestly not sure if I'm asking this question properly, any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

The second question I had is..well, there are millions of flavors in the vape world right now. Where do I start with buying the flavorings? With most solid state flavors (for instance, Green Apple) do I JUST add the Green Apple flavoring, or are there other things that I should be adding as well as the Green Apple? I noticed there were some things called flavor additives, something called Flavor Wizard I think, it is supposed to be added at 1% and it will boost the flavor. Are these even necessary, or is it something to ignore for a while?

Third question is about flavor. I'm a flavor nut, I am not a cloud chaser for the most part. I enjoy a lot of flavor. I'm vaping on a Sigeli 150w TC with a UWell Crown tank. I'm trying the .225 dual parallel coils, next I am going to try the nickel wound so that I can use the TC part of my sigeli. How do I go about getting the most flavor out of my juices when making them? Do I add more flavoring? Nic? etc.

Final question I have is about steeping/breathing. Now, I am pretty familiar with what these are, but there are a few simple things that I am looking over that I can't seem to figure out properly. Now, I'm assuming the answer is going to be something along the lines of "this part isn't a science, it's variable. No formula. blah blah" I know I know. What I need is a starting ground. Are ultrasonic cleaners even worth investing in? Is this process absolutely necessary to vape the liquid? When letting the juice breath, do I let it sit in a dark place for 10 hours opened or 10 minutes opened? A lot of what I read ranged from 10 minutes breathing and 1 week steeping to 10 hours breathing and 2 weeks head spins when it comes to stuff like this, lol. Not sure where to go from here.

The last bit of information I need to know (too lazy to change the above "last question" so you can deal with 2 last questions =p) is about the package that I was looking to buy to get started with making my own juices (link below). I need to know if there is anything else I should add on to the purchase, such as: -Better gloves for nic handling? -Supplies that aren't included? -Is this a good thing to buy, or are there better ones out there that I should put my eyes on rather than this one? -Anything I should know about this package that makes it inferior? What should I look for??

(link. Just where I said it would be..look at that, you doubted me >.>)

So, after a huge, exhausting message that bored you out of your eye balls for about 10 minutes, just tell me if there is anything you think that I might've passed over or you think that I should know when going on the venture to make my own liquids. Thanks for baring with me!!

TL;DR - Bunch of random questions and random thoughts put together by myself in the hopes to find some answers that I need.

P.S. I did read a lot of the side bar information, and these are some of the things that I am still pretty confused about. Any help appreciated =)

I use JuiceCalculator, so my answers are geared toward that:

1) Nic comes in PG or VG, the calculator will take that into account (since you'll tell it which one it is in when you create it as an ingredient). You just set your target PG/VG/Nic and it does the calculations.

2) You can use solid flavors, or mix similar or complimentary flavors. Most of my juices are just one flavor, they hit the spot for me.

2.5) If a recipe calls for it, you can try it, or you can ignore it and see how it comes out.

3) Too much flavoring will actually kill the flavor. You just have to play with it until you find what you like.

Final) Make a batch, around 10ml, and drip a little right away and see how you like it. Then let it sit for a week, and try it again. Then another week. Then another. Take notes. Some flavors don't really change (fruits it seems), others can change a lot (tobaccos for me).

Last) Don't buy that kit, you won't use most of it if just making for yourself (or at least, I never would). You'll never need beakers unless making multiple bottles full of the same thing, and then you could just mix right into multiple bottles. You'll never use graduated cylinders, unless you want to weigh flavorings, and then you just need one. Syringes are a pain in the ass, pipettes are cheap as hell and easier.

Here's what I would recommend:

  • Scale I don't use the white bowl that comes with it, you want one that goes to 0.01g.
  • Bottles (30ml / 1oz works, you can mix right into the bottles). Pick your vendor, glass or plastic, your choice.
  • Nicotine from one of the vendors. Do 60 or 100mg, around 100ml to start. You can always order a litre later and split it once you decide you like to DIY.
  • Pipettes
  • Nitrite Gloves, pick your vendor. Amazon is probably cheapest.
  • Whatever flavors you want, most places that sell bottles also sell flavors.
  • PG
  • VG

So this mead is a little under 4 months old, but since it's a rainy day I decided to take my first taste test sample, and try using one of the (not used) plastic pipettes I keep in my painting equipment. The wine thief is overrated.

  • Color: Pinkish rose center, slight brown on the edges, but that might just be the glass. Clear as can be. Cmon, the image is right there.

  • Smell: You can smell the heat from the alcohol. It's faint, but noticeable. The raisin and fig meld nicely though, it's almost hard to discern the two. Very faint floral note from the honey at the end.

  • Taste: Oakey up front, but it mellows into the same fig/raisin flavors that were smelled earlier. VERY dry. small honeyish flavor at the end, but no trace of sweet to be found. Oddly enough, the oak and the fruit (might have something to do with the alcohol heat, who knows) almost seem to trick my tongue into tasting a very faint presence of black pepper and citrus. Really weird, but a crazy neat flavor combo I might explore on another (distant future) mead. The Lalvin D-47 did something awesome to this.

  • Mouthfeel: Thin, but not watery. The (hungarian) oak did it's job. Not carbonated, so no prickles.

  • Overall: So far so good. The alcohol heat should dissipate over time, and the oak will (inevitably) soften and no longer be in the forefront. This mead might become a hell of a thing a year or two down the road...

Change syringes and needles or not? [R]

4 years, 9 months agoC-Hayes posted submission on DIY_eJuice.
June 18, 2015

Hey guys I'm thinking about switching back to mixing by volume (mainly because my order at TPA came in glass bottles without an option to meter the flavors drop by drop).

One reason why I started mixing by weight in the first place was the amount of needles and syringes I burned every time. My question now is, do you guys reuse the same syringes or a new ones every time? Or do you even just reuse the ones for the flavors?

Or - which I seriously just about now that I'm writing this - do you use the same needles and syringes and just wash them out afterwards? Might be the much cheaper option, but still an annoying thing to keep one syringe for every single flavor in my stash..

I'm aware of the fact that I can also just fill the flavors from the glass bottles into plastic ones with a dripper on top, but I'm not sure that I want that.

Seems really inefficient to go back to syringes. Grab some disposable pipettes and your life will be much easier. Just toss them after using, or tape it to your flavor bottle for future use. Much better.

Hi all,

Like many other humble stealth growers, I water my plants from a normal bottle... The main issue I'm having with this though, is how incredibly strong pH up and down are!

I always overshoot and it takes me quite a while to get the water to the desired pH. Hardly a task I have the time to do every single day once we get to flowering! Does anybody have any ideas on how to do this right? Should I make a bottle of pH 4-5 water and drop from there maybe?

Goblin RTA filling issues [R]

5 years agoMarch 11, 2015

So, how do you guys refill your Goblin without getting juice everywhere? I'm using the standard dropper that came with my bottle of Lenola Cream and I still tend to waste a little bit of juice when I fill up the tank around the edge of the fill hole. I thought about investing in some syringes to see if that would help, but I thought I'd ask ECR first! Thanks in advance!

If you can get the rest of the look maybe doing a "layered" injection of a liquid in to the background would work. Use a pipette to slowly place some liquid down and then another to do the eye. Good luck!

Yeah, I make sure to not shake my bottles, I stir them instead. This keeps paint from accumulating on the top of the bottle cap, preventing it from drying the lid shut as well as preserving the paint longer.

I also buy a ton of these pipettes as well as these medicine cups every few months. I always transfer my paint to a little cup to mix / thin it.

Another tip to extend a paints longevity is to never place thinned paint back into the jar, as it can cause some paints to gel and become useless over time.

Paint percentages [R]

First off. This subreddit is amazing. Such helpful people. Thank you everyone!

My question is in regards to the percentages of paint to mix to get the right color indicated in the instructions. When it says 90% red and 10% white, do I just eyeball it? Figure out the size of the mixing vial and do the math?

As always, thanks in advance.

get a set of these on amazon. They are perfect for measurring paints. Small and disposable, so no need to try to clean paint out of them, they will last a while. If i need to measure paints, I just use 2 droppers and go either drop by drop, or using the little markers along the sides.

lately co-washing just gives me gross, crunchy-ish, rough-ish hair that is frizzy when dry? [R]

5 years, 7 months agoAug. 6, 2014

I co-wash with suave naturals.

I shampoo every other day. A few months ago I got to where I could shampoo once every three days, but lately I've done more heat stylign so if I'm using heat I use a heat protectant, which means I need to shampoo..

this time around on co-washing I seem to only get gross hair. I remember before I got these lovely waves that were very hydrated, now they are just/// gross. Any ideas?

I use about three big droppers full of Trader Joe's tea tree oil (~9 ml) in a whole bottle of Suave Naturals conditioner (I usually use coconut, but I'm going to buy one of the no-protein ones when I run out), and shake it up. I massage a huge handful into my scalp and comb it through my hair (fine, curly, not very porous) and rinse with cool water, and my hair stays fresh smelling and soft, not greasy or flat. Give it a try, but maybe only mix a few drops of tea tree oil into a half cup of conditioner to start with, just in case you don't like it. You don't want to ruin a whole bottle of conditioner if the tea tree oil doesn't work for you!

I also use a tiny bit tea tree oil in the spray gel I use for styling, to keep it fresh smelling. It's a pretty versatile essential oil!

Molecular Gastronomy Spherirication is really fun and sciency. I made little balsamic vinegar spears when I did it for a project but you can do it with fruit juice and then put them on ice cream. They are kinda like boba but much smaller. I used these pipettes to make the spheres (if you decide to do this, I still have a bunch and totally willing to send you some if you would like) It was pretty fun and I'm an adult. Also I have a simpler recipe but mine is specifically for vinegar...not sure if that matters...

These brain ice cube trays would make ice or you could make mini brain jello jigglers.

Feel free to link me to threads that may cover these questions if they have already been covered.

I don't vape Nic. I love GNS vapor. They are basically highest VG possible while still having VERY good flavor. Most are creamy as well.

I want to make juice for my wife and I much like this but be able to make any flavor we want.

I was gonna order 3-4 basic flavors like peach/apple/mango/blueberry just to get the mixing part down.


  1. Besides VG/PG/Flavor, what do I need to effectively mix?

  2. If I wanna stick with the same ratio (highest VG possible) How much VG/PG should I do and should that stay the same no matter what flavor I mix? ( I saw that some had PG and stuff in them already) I know PG is what makes the flavor stick.

  3. What is the best "cream/milky" flavor to use for a base, and how much, if I want them all to be creamy in flavor but not overpowering since VG is already sweet.

  4. Any tips/tricks you learned from screwing up a couple batches I should know about?

First off, take a look at the sidebar. A lot of good information has been collected and filtered on the posts found there.

1) Things you want:

  • Graduated cylinders: 1x 50ml, 1x 100ml
  • Syringes: Various sizes, blunt tip. You can ask for free ones at the pharmacy, just say you need them for baby medicine
  • Pipettes: I ordered a bag of 100x from amazon for less than $10. You want the cheap plastic ones
  • You might want Ethyl Maltol or EZ Sweetz for sweeteners, but I've found I don't end up using them very often
  • Containers: glass boston rounds or plastic bottles. I actually saved all my bottles from juice orders previously, so you can always reuse old containers.
  • Heating pad/crockpot/heated ultrasonic cleaner: using one of these will help you speed up the flavor enhancement that usually comes with longer "steeping" times. I just use hot water and patience, but others have remarked on these working well.

2) I mix at 50/50, so I don't know a lot about max-vg, but most flavors are suspended in pg, so you will not be able to get up to 100% vg in most cases.

3) There's a lot of different creams out there, but I just started using a cream base that you actually make using a variety of different creamy flavors. It's called milkstone, and there are a couple different recipes out there, just search for them and you shouldn't have trouble finding info/recipes


  • Fail better! You will always make stuff that doesn't turn out right, but that's part of the process.
  • You will soon have more juice than you can realistically use personally.
  • Use a juice calculator program--I use Juice Calculator, which you can calculate costs in addition to exact amounts. It's very easy to use.
  • Treat your tongue nicely, or you may get vapers tongue--drink plenty of water and switch flavors/use palette cleansers (sniff coffee).
  • Work slowly and don't leave bottles unscrewed to minimize spills. Basically, pretty common sense stuff.
  • Use this subreddit and the search function and you'll find all the answers you'll need.

Otherwise, one final rec'd is to look up recipes on here and other sites, then make your flavor order based on the ingredients from the recipes you want to make. I have only used TFA so far and have been very pleased with the quality. Good luck and happy vaping!

Airbrush help, experienced advice needed [R]

Alright, I went out and got a dual action gravity feed airbrush with compressor. I bought some acrylic airbrush medium to thin GW paints. I have a metric ton of GW paints and I'm trying to follow the GW color palettes so I would prefer not to buy new paints. My first attempt was a bit of a failure. I thinned the paint 1:1 as per intructions but it was too thin. It seemed to get thinner as I painted even though I mixed it thoroughly. Explain to me like I'm 5 how you get an accurate mix. I have a little measured suction thing but how the fuck to you suction out of the GW pots? YouTube always goes straight to painting techniques, I need real basic setup tips.

Edit: Success!!! Thanks for all your advice, after my abysmal first attempt I nailed it on the second one. I'm gonna do a WIP when I get a little farther along. Thanks all

if you want to accurately measure how much paint you're using you can use a pipette

you should expand your paint collection, purpose made paints for airbrushes work really well out of the bottle, and you can get really great shading and blending effects using transparent paints that you can't get with the regular GW paints

Need advice on thinned paint drying too fast! [R]

5 years, 11 months agojust_some_Fred posted submission on Warhammer40k.
April 24, 2014

Alright, so for the last week or so while painting some Eldar Guardians, I have had the issue with thinning the paints I use. If I try to use some water drops, the brush never picks up enough and the result is I may as well use the paint direct from the pot. If I use the medium GW sells for thinning their paints, I get at most 1 minute to use as much of the paint as possible, because after that minute, whatever is on the palette dries up and can not be made to be useable again. I have however realised whatever I'm doing, I have to put the paint I wish to use on the palette with the brush I intend to use, because if I use a different brush, too much paint will be wasted. So yes, anyone got advice how to thin the paints correctly so they don't dry up on me super fast? I've so far only followed what I could google, which is resulting in me basically needing to paint the full model in under a minute to get the most of the paint before it dries out.

for moving paint around you can use a drinking straw, just dip it into the pot a little, then cover the end with your thumb, move it to the palette. if you're feeling fancy you can get some pipettes

I use about a 1:1 ratio on my palette, and I get a couple hours good use out of it just using a cheap plastic watercolor palette from Michael's. You can also make up a wet palette, I know a lot of folks like these.

for even longer lasting paint, or for wet blending, you can get some acrylic retarder

It's way, way easier to mix with 100% PG nicotine solution unless you're going for max VG! Just get some pipettes, if you don't wanna have to clean shit. They're cheap and disposable. Five bucks for 100, free shipping at Amazon.

I've found using eJuiceMeUp, it's just way more simple to calculate crap out using 100% PG nic. Almost all flavours are PG and whatnot.

It is filled with 80% Indigo RiffRaff, 20% Cola Freeze from EJC - a fruity cool type of ADV, but maybe I should fill it with some Absolute Pin, just to see how long it would take to finish one tank... :p

  1. Disposable pipettes are your friend.
  2. Calibrate with distilled water. I keep a tiny nalgene container of it with my refractometer and do a quick calibration prior to using.
  3. Depending on the temp of the liquid, give it a little time before taking your reading -- 1-2 minutes won't hurt if you're adding near boiling wort.
  4. Note that reading plain ol' wort is fine. But, if your beer has any alcohol in it, you need to use a conversion chart/calculator.

A refractometer is a beautiful thing. No more needing to cool down a large wort sample just to check your first runnings or pre-boil OG.

Goulet Ink Samples w/ Pilot Capless/Vanishing Point? [R]

6 years, 6 months agohaharisma posted submission on fountainpens.
Sept. 22, 2013

I'm thinking about ordering a bunch of the 2ml ink samples from Goulet Pens to have a play with. Considering signing up to the Ink Drop, but don't see myself using up 5 samples a month... also it's an extra $5 a month as I'm in the UK.

My concern is whether I'll be able to fill my Capless from the small 2ml tester pots. The nib needs to be pretty deeply submerged when refilling (see:, and I don't know whether that's achievable with the the small samples...

Anyone know whether they're suitable? I'm not sure it'd go down well at work if I pulled out a syringe every time I ran out of ink...
