    I'm an arist and I got pretty close to doing that shit until I asked mysef "what the fuck are you doing."

    That was the end of that...

    That shit takes like 10-20 hours to do..

    I believe I have a few laying round somewhere that I did way back..

    500 bucks a pop... Actually my aunt has an art gallery up in Seattle and she wanted them since I was 12... hahaha

    I never had the patience for one of those, but admire those of you who can.

    I took my case to Engineering paper and a box of inexpensive coloring pencils (least expensive just when school start sales happen July-September), and it suits me.

    I work in 1" squares of cloth--maps, geometrics, florals, etc. It's fun.

    When I taught classes, I used black ink sharpies on engineering paper. The blue does not show up when you photocopy the pattern grid. On the old printer, we had to adjust the value scale a little sometimes when it got ambitious in its printing.

    My etch-a-sketches always got tussled around, nothing like destroying half a day's work reaching for a glass of water.

    Not!

    The hard part is that you cannot mess up.

    In theory it's perfection...

    There is no eraser.

    You fuck up half way through and it's done - there is no going back - you have to start from the beginning.

    Anybody watch BREAKING BAD?

    I ask because in one episode, the protagonist uses the stuff inside of etcha sketch to create a THERMITE device.

    I just wonder if it is true that the stuff inside of an etch-a-sketch is really one of the components with one can make a thermite device.

    I think it is a kind of highly milled metal, right?

    FYI, here's Wiki's note on Thermite
