Stop wasting your resin! I was wasting resin? How?
I should have noticed this earlier. When I started casting I had a bunch of ideas and questions. Could I do this or could I do that. One of the reasons for casting was because I dont like to paint because I am not a very good painter. In the past, if I painted something, it showed. So I started casting with pigmentation.
When I made Chiron, I inlaid red resin hilights onto the cast parts. In effect combining 2 different colors. When I made Roboid I did the same. I made the blue half of the torso. When it was cured, I poured the red in over top it and let the red cure to the blue. So why didnt I think of this sooner?
I am currently reconditioning a SpiderMobile. A Mego Solarion remake in red. It needs some black ski's. So I am making a few sets. When making a cast from a new mold, volume is an issue. How much do I use?
Its always a fear to not quite make enough. But when making the ski's, I had a bit of waste left over and didnt want to waste it. It looked like I might be able to fill my King ATlas head mold. So I started filling up the mold. Rats...not enough resin. What a waste. WAIT A MINUTE...
I need to make a GEEG head mold anyway...Now I can make extra heads with my left over resin as long as the color matches.
And it took me this long to realize this...Oh yeah...I'm the sharpest knife in the drawer.
