In the interests of not being a total hypocritic I have done stupid, unsafe shit too. This was back in 2012 or 2013. I made an eyecover out of silicone on a cotton pad, then stuck a wooden paint brush handle to it and covered it with more silicone. I thought it was safe because it was thick, but in reality if i had fallen face first the rigid wooden handle probably could have penetrated through the silicone cotton pad thing and into my eye. When people back then told me it was unsafe in the comments I argued with them. I didn't want to be criticised. But I'm glad they did because it eventually sunk in and otherwise i wouldn't have known. I still struggle with negative feedback, but when safely is an issue it's important. When people see your work and copy you it's important. Now I tell people to make soft, foam props that will bend on impact, and have rigid plates like vacuform or resin, etc, between the eye and the prop. #liveandlearn
