  1. Thanks @Kuroneko!


    If it is a reaction to other materials, maybe you could seal the base and scatter (with a spray varnish or laquer) before pouring the resin. Although I'm not sure how practical this would be on fine items such as tufts?


    Have you considered using UV resin & a UV torch to set it? Curing is almost instantanious with this method so it's possible that any slow leaching out from materials while drying, may be nipped in the bud?

  2. I've had this happen to me on a piece I did about 4 years ago & it's only recently that I've noticed it.



















    I did tint the pools with GW shades & there are bits of leaf/terrain scatter in them so maybe that has reacted with it. This is Vallejo Still Water - shant be using it again!! :angry:

  3. Looking good!


    For the eyes I would suggest make the base colour a darker yellow or orange then paint yellow dots all over it to represent compound eyes (in a hexagonal "grid" pattern rather than a square one) making sure each yellow dot has a "surround" of the base colour showing.
