YOU DID WHAT...? Accidents Gone Good - A Lesson From Charlie Hutton

It is funny how some things happen in life. For instance, do you remember the commercial where these people were at the movie theater and someone drops their chocolate bar in someone else's peanut butter? The point the commercial was implying is that Reese's was discovered by an accident. If you don't remember, I included a video of the commercial below.

The reason I bring this up is because Charlie Hutton from the television shows American Hotrod and Overhaulin', said he discovered this wood graining technique by accident. They sprayed some paint on an area, but did not like the way it looked. Therefore, he started to wipe it off to start over. However, after wiping the paint he noticed how the waterborne paint smeared and streaked when wiping it. This created the wood graining technique they are demonstrating in the technical teaching video.

As I mentioned before, always be open minded and look from way to learn from your mistakes. Mistakes have created many of the things we use today.
