First a little background info: I loved my hand-carved walnut VaporGenie, but several months ago it was discovered by my parents who took it away temporarily (I'll be able to receive all of my items back upon my entrance into graduate school). A few weeks passed and I decided to buy a new VaporGenie. I didn't want this one to be discovered so I did not purchase it online through my credit card and instead bought it at my local head shop. They only had the mass produced models at the shop. The only one left in their stock was an ugly turquoise one. I decided to buy it anyways. I hated the shape of it, being bulky and weirdly shaped in comparison to the hand-carved models, and I hated the color of it so I decided to do some DIY work on it. Sanded the shit out of it and added some oil & bee's wax. Couldn't get all the paint out, but I think the now blue color adds a nice touch. I love the shape too! It's so slender and fits well in the hand. Now to the pics!
