  1. .... well, I feel sheepish... lol. wow!!! Thanks so much! That is a perfect idea!
  2. That's awesome advice! Thank you!! @Zink Would you suggest just making my own silicone mold for this? I jsut want a cylinder that is about 4 inches wide and 3 inches tall and I'm having difficulty finding that.
  3. Thanks everyone! I am trying to make a water base, and trying to avoid 782 hours of sanding by using a mold box with shiny sides.
  4. Hey!!! I'm still fighting resin. Seriously, it might be winning. I want to ask a hypothetical question and have y'all give me opinions. Do you think a springform pan would work for a mold into which to pour resin? I'm thinking yes, and it might have some nice, smooth sides too...... What does the collective think?!

    Whew! Sorry it's been a while. It was finals week, valentines day, and GBO's birthday this week. Didn't leave a lot of time for progress. And the work I did was a little disheartening. I think I've reached the point where I'm getting bored and want it to be done. Which is not a great place to be. So I'm going to update, get my head on right, and get ready for the long haul. So, my test pour came out level, but had a weird void in it. Which means I need to do some research h into troubleshooting in case I have a void in my final cast. Can I pour into it? Can I make it look like I meant to do it? If I stand over it the entire time, can I pop a void before it's final? So, those are my next hints to answer. I decided to try my hand at sanding and determined I don't have the patience to do it by hand. So I'm going to order some things from amazing and try them. I was having some trouble with the fact that I will be throwing away the test piece that I spend 3 hours polishing. So I may try to line my mold with some plastic too. That way I have a shinier surface. Then I went to work on getting her pieces finalized so I could finally mount her on the base. I needed to twist her torso a bit to get their eyelines matching up. She's mounted! And of course I broke a piece of her crown and had 7 heart attacks while I was doing so. But it's better now. Phew! Oh, and I broke off her dumps like a truck. So I'll have to reattach those. I couldn't do it last night, I was too frustrated. So, that's where I'm at right now. I will try a few more test pours, because I read thst the shinier the mold surface, the less sanding necessary. And I definitely noticed a difference between the different molds I have used. Wish me luck! Let me know what you think!

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    Awesome! We loved the box lunches sorry others had issues. I wasn't a huge fan of the food truck because it took forever to get. We'll have a car and 4 feet between the two of us, so we'll see what we can see! Coming from a hugely Hispanic area, I generally steer clear of Mexican food in north of Dallas. It's just different.

    2 years ago, they did a thing where you could buy boxed lunches from the cafeteria, is that an option in the new venue? I remember it was super convenient to just go grab your lunch, and they were really good sandwiches too! It made it easy to go from class to class without having to stress about eating. IIRC, we had breakfast, lunch, and all but one or 2 dinners on site.

    Oh! I love him!!! I think I like it matte, so that the spinedies on the back look more like pokey spines. :) Glad to see you back!
  9. Are these not actually streamed? We had been planning to watch it on twitch, but nothing was streaming. So I looked around and just saw the new video pop up on YouTube...

    Meh? We're pretty disgusting and like each other a lot. So we'll go out to dinner or do something small. Considering grandma is taking the Tiny Overlord today, I foresee us watching reaper live and passing out in our chairs. Haha! Romance is Alive, people!!

    I forgot to update. At day 30,i was down a total of 10 inches between bust /waist /hips, and 12lbs. That means I'm back down a pant size, and I feel so so much better. We decided to do ankther 30 days to keep up the good results, and I'm going to start exercising 3 days a week. I'm a terrible exerciser, so that is actually quite a commitment. I've been mostly doing YouTube exercise videos so I can mix it up. I generally yell at the skinny girl in the video and curse the whole time. Lol The nice thing is, GBO is on the diet with me. So we're able to talk about changes and our struggles together. It's really not hard, it almost habit by now. But it does get kind of.... Boring? Tedious? We have to keep trying to find stuff we're excited about because it's all veggies and 'good' food. Considering we have spent the majority of our 12 year marriage celebrating with food, it makes things seem a little flat. Anyways, sorry! Results are good! I can see it in my face, and I'm gonna keep working. I'm proud of everyone! Keep it up!

    Just because I've had several requests, I made a post with all of my resin experiences. Feel free to peruse if you're interested.
