Are you 3d printing the masters? I'm curious how you go from the 3d model to the master.
Also, how have you been doing the multi-shot eyes? do you just inject the eye color around the eyes, wait for it to cure, then finish casting the key?
These look great! Any word on that sale?
The masters are 3d printed. I found someone with a good 3d printer and had him print a master for me. Unfortunately, the stem did not turn out well in the 3d printing process so I had to 'transpose' a new stem by hand. I will try to document these steps in my next project.
For the multi-shot, I just pour resin into the eyes first (I use a toothpick). Once it has set (2-3 minutes), I pour the darker black resin to fill and the whole thing goes into the pressure pot.
The sale has been taking a lot longer than expected - I've had to shift focus to finding a job (preparing for technical interviews
) and I've given most of my first batch away. Will work on next batch of 18 (15 for sale, 3 for giveaway) in between job searching today and tomorrow. I will announce a giveaway next Tuesday and sale next Thursday. Thanks for being patient.
I have reverted back to original thin walls. They may be a bit thin for some, but thick walls will have to wait until my life settles down a bit - I'll post pictures so you know exactly what you're getting. After some feedback from GH chatrooms, current thick walls were not polished enough.
