"Come out to the coast, we'll get together, have a few laughs..." First, let me explain "why" I made this. Yes, "Die Hard" is a Christmas movie. The same as any of those Hallmark channel movies, "It's a Wonderful Life," or "Elf." I can feel my teeth rotting just mentioning that movie. Second, my wife wears holiday pins everyday for the month of December. She even wears a pair of pins on occasion. She has too many to fit into 25 days. Since this became a tradition, as is watching "Die Hard," every year, I started planning this craft project. I did have this sidelined for a bit, mostly due to not having the right size "vent" I wanted to use for the size of the pin. I finally found a rounded corner rectangular set of cookie cutters (pkg of 10) that fit the bill. LOL So with laminated pictures of John in the can, as it were, I cut him in and then added UV resin to seal him in. A generous layer of resin. Then I added a cutout of his head and his hand with the lighter to add some depth. Voila, John McClane in the vents of the Nakatomi Building. You might have seen some ornaments around the 'net. Here are some pics as well as my wife sporting the pin today. Just john bent into the "vent." John with a cutout of his head one layer in front of the background pic and his hand and light another layer ahead of that. Sadly a few bubbles formed on the top layers. I got a few out before hardening the resin. The pin in place. My wife's new Christmas Pin. LMAO It has two pin backs attached to the back with the UV resin. Both with the clasp end and pin point down. Easy placement and closing. Holds it in place well. I think I am going to find a mini-bow for the top and add a ribbon around the outside. Add to the Christmas presentation. For those wondering what UV resin I used... I got a couple of .75oz bottles off of Wish for the job a while ago. Worked well. Enjoy and leave your thoughts and CC. I am interested in hearing what you all think.

77163: Male Storm Giant
ultrasquid posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingI'm nearly finished with the storm giant from the first Bones Kickstarter. There are still some details to do along with base decoration, and I might have to rethink my color choices on the octopus-themed bracers. I straightened the notoriously floppy sword by cutting it at the joint of the guard, drilling out both the handle and blade, and inserting a pin made from a paperclip, gluing along the length of the pin and the joint with E6000. The resulting joint is strong so far. I attached the base to a 2x3 inch plywood oval (actual measure is a little larger), again using E6000, which is getting to be my favorite glue for unlike materials despite its long drying time.
Bones dragon wings: To pin or not to pin?
Pingo posted a topic in Reaper's Product LinesHave people been pinning the wings of their Bones dragons? How about the large ones, like Ebonwrath? How well do those wing joins hold up to regular handling, or holding together while painting?
