See this friggin' pot? that's industrial stuff to help unmould the resin. I bought it 30 bloody euros. So the mould is in glass: it's flat, that's the great advantage of glass :) I use some very strong paper to glue packet to tie all the borders together.
Please visit my new website
I have a new website at www.distant-shores.com its aim is to gather all the nature centered websites I have been doing those past few months,
This is a bit lame, but I need to change the server of this site which is so slooow, and also to reactivate cdiorama.com
here's the dirty mix i have been using to paint the underwater groundwork -Van Dyk brown + leather paint.
I am sorry for the long time without posting anything, but it had much to do with the water effects which proved to be messy, inefficient, involving a fantastic waste of resin -and whose outcome is drying outside as i write this -so nothing is sure concerning the result.
Products heads up
I was sent that Pebeo Cernes Relief product some time agio and liked it straight away. Its fine tip allows me to make joints between the stuff i embbed in water and the stuff itself like my graves here.
It dries just like regular glossy Acrylic gel that you can find in art shops or Valejo's Water Effect (which is exactly the same stuff)
The reason I use those flex-pad instead of other solutions is seen here: I have been owning the same since 4 years and even though mine are in bad shape they still work alright. I love the "blade tip" which allows to sand in the crevices
That's a hobby sort of posting. I recently bought Uschi van der Rosten's metalic pigments and well, I used to know Alex before he was Uschi you see and this kind of posts can't do him wrong.
