The Watermelon Aluminum-Art Safety Checklist

  • Step 1: jeans, casual shoes, and molten metal? Check.
  • Step 2: lack of fire-safe enclosure? Check.
  • Step 3: slam kitchen knife into table? Check.
  • Step 4: cut through tough watermelon husk by pulling knife toward body? Check.
  • Step 5: flail knife around dog and sister? Check.

i love artistic experiments!

I like the word schmafety. :)

It really did turn out surprisingly well.
