Dooooooood, good luck with the pour! I've been skiddish about water effects after last years issues! I'm excited to see the results here though! Good luck!

Thanks! I'm not scared, I'd be a bit upset if it didn't work, but I'm willing to take on all challenges and try many different things in this hobby. The large pour is one of the more difficult things to do right, so I need to get it down because I have other projects in mind that will be using larger pours of the stuff.

Watching this with great interest as I hope to one day have a certain kraken popping up from the depths...  Good luck with the second attempt!

Annnnd POURED!

 

Looking good, no leakage thus far... I probably went a bit overboard on making sure it wouldn't leak this time, but I think it paid off. The difficult part is still to come when I try to remove the mold from the plinth itself. I'll have to pry the wood off the plinth itself and I'm sure I'll have to do some sanding to get it back to square so I can glue some plasticard on it and paint the plasticard matte black, which means I'll make sure to wrap the resin in some painters tape as I do the work on the plinth. 

 

Anyhow, pics!

Okay, spoke too soon, a very very tiny bit of leakage, but not enough to worry about as it's super slow and will stop when the resin starts to harden in a little bit here.

LARGER POURS?!?  <faints>

 

Probably if I was going to do a really large pour I would plan to do several layers.  The first layer tends to be where it leaks anyway.  There can also be issues with bubbles getting caught around your objects and that's less likely to happen with multiple pours.  There were some sea shells that I had to do in two steps, first put resin into the shell and let it cure, then put the shell into the form and pour resin around it.  I'm not sure if that would be relevant to your planned projects, but if you've got multiple projects planned you can use a little bit of leftover resin to prep other bits.  Or even bits that you might use some day.  

 

But congrats on getting a successful pour!  ::D:

Very cool!

 

I also would like to try one day.

Still afraid of ruining models.

 

How do you remove the sealing parts without damaging the resin?

In theory, because I put down some Vaseline on the interior of the mold it should peel off easily there. Then I'll have to pry the wood off the bottom portion where wood meets wood. I'm sure I'll have some pieces that stick and are left behind, but I'll scrape and sand those off while covering the clear resin I poured with painters tape to keep it from getting marked up.

      So finally got the courage to post some minis that I have finished over the last few months. Here are some of the Yuan-Ti Nagendra metal minis I have always really liked. I have the archer and halberd still to paint up that I have from my most recent order, but am taking a break from the scaly creatures for a bit. I know I need to work on my highlighting but any other feedback is welcome.

      This is Vilthiss Snake Champion from Mierce's Banelords Range.
      Resin.
      Base is made with a Greenstuffworld Rollerpin some skulls and a few of Ristul's Fantasy Market's resin bugs.
       
      After taking the pics I noticed a little too much purple gums on the upper side of the teeth, it's fixed.
       
      He's part of my Lost World Project which you can find here:

      This guy has some belts and buckles, If I didn't know better I would suspect it was a Klocke sculpt..
       
       
      NEW PICS ADDED
       
      Fixed the teeth and added a reflection dot.
      First 5 pics are the new ones.

      Did a little painting today to calm my nerves before the con.  Experimented with several brands of metallic paint.  Photos are not great, but you get the idea.

      I wasn't planning on ever doing any more Work In Progress threads (The number of threads I've abandoned outnumber my finished threads by a pretty ridiculous amount at this point), but I'm trying to get back into the habit of painting every day and my brain is being a real jerk about it (he'd be a lot happier if I gave up on this whole painting nonsense and just stared mindlessly at a screen all day).
      So the idea is if I post an update a day, regardless of how much progress I've made, I'll shame myself into making sure I've done enough for a worthwhile update or something.
       
      Day 1 (Which was yesterday):-
       

       
      The King and his Seahorse have been undercoated, washed and I've started on the base, I got part way through applying the pumice paste before I realised I couldn't get to the middle without getting it all over the Seahorses tail/tentacles/tail-acles?
      Today I want to try and finish the base, and maybe start on the Seahorse.
