Gerard’s new merch + amazing descriptions
Early humans used shimmery mica flakes to add some primitive glitter to cave paintings, and a 2013 study found that the ancient Maya even covered a 6th-century temple in a sparkling mica-infused paint to likely herald a celebratory event or anniversary. But when it comes to the tiny bits of plastics and aluminum we call glitter today, Henry Ruschmann accidentally invented it in 1934.
First day back to work in 3 weeks and I am absolutely dreading it.
