I had a spare bit of resin when casting something one afternoon. I hate wasting resin which could be used, so poured it into an ageing Mechanicus seal mould.
The final piece was a bit air bubbly but I didn’t expect it to be perfect, the resin was already starting to cure. With some polishing and careful carving, the piece ended up looking like quite weathered which was a nice effect.
I’ve been able to cast a few more in resin. I also cold cast a couple with aluminium to get a silver metallic effect.
The final results came out well but they’re fiddly to cast without airbubbles. Another reason for me to try and make room for a vacuum tank somewhere.
