Tim and Sean have already completed several test casts of The Rocketeer but one thing they’re unhappy with is that the current base is two pieces. They’ve made a mold of a one-piece base and are making test casts to see if this will be any better.
Nearly done with this Superman bust of George Reeves. We’re planning to start making molds of this in the next few weeks and should be ready to cast by the end of the month.
We were doing some experiments in coloring flesh colored resin black for a project we were working on, but whenever we added any color to the resin we got some “interesting” results. Mostly that the resin bubbled and smoked like a witch’s cauldron and was completely unusable.
We finally ended up casting in the flesh color they dying the resin a darker color. We still had to paint the cast, but hopefully if the paint rubs off it the darker resin showing through won’t show through too badly.
Resin 1, Resin Heroes 0.
