This is part 2 of my foray into casting bits.
It was time to break the first half of the mold out of the lego box.
After peeling of the plasticine - which I need to find a way to keep it from sticking
so badly to what I'm casting or find another medium - I made sure the pieces were
again laying in their proper spots and rebuilt the lego box...a little higher this time.
Mix the Oomoo and pour
Wait 6 hours
You probably notice the color difference. Me too! The only thing I can figure is
that I didn't get the blue part of the red / blue premixed properly, but thankfully
it did not affect the mold OR the results.
At this point, I failed to grab any pictures. The task though was to use an exacto
knife and clean up the air vents etc for my newly created injection mold.
I then mixed the 2 part resin which only has a 3 min max work time so it had to be
done very quickly. The tutorial I had watched said be careful you don't use too much
resin. I guessed how much I would need...cut that in half...and then when I injected it,
It took less than half of my half! Less than 5 ccs ( 1 tsp ) completely fill the mold to
The results?! ( Pre opening the mold I'm praying for just 2 usable power fists )
I got 3!!!! The only flaw in the whole deal was my setup! If I had placed them
differently, I would have 4 and have not had any bubbles. As it was I had very small
bubbles just in the finger tips which I daubed with the new GW liquid green stuff.
Completely painted -
An astounding success! I'm looking forward to my next role!
Now get your paint on!
