Hey guys, won't be home until later tonight, so maybe give a top three or something. I'll sort all orders and update in a couple of hours.

Just got my email and reservation confirmation, woot woot! Thanks Katz!

Clear cap is just a teaser, sorry :v

That's messed up... That thing is too sexy to just tease us with... and this is coming from someone who normally doesn't  like blanks.

Now excuse me while I go bury my head in the dirt and cry for a couple of days.

Sounds like you're as overworked as I am... Cheer up mate! Maybe a good sale will help?

Alright guys, just got through all of the orders and have updated the availability. Sorry to those whose orders I couldn't accommodate, hopefully I can ramp up production in the coming month so there's less order conflict. Probably need to work on a new system with google forms or something.

Much love to you guys :)

P.S. Just 2B and 5B left, if anybody needs another beard or two in their lives!

5B was definitely my favourite from this batch. I should check for new sales more regularly so I actually can get a cap.

Love Machine mold won't be making a reappearance any time soon, since it's dead (lol). Maybe a future iteration? I don't know.

Haven't molded anything in DSA yet, but should be easy enough. Have some more silicone coming in so if there's enough demand for it I'll definitely make some.

Just sent out all of the invoices (though I see you've already paid yours; so fast!)

To everyone else: take care of it when you have the chance, I'll have these shipped out this coming Monday.

What is the process called here? I mean the procedure of making these babies? Can you link wiki, I always love to learn something new.

Yep! More Topre stuff is coming soon, trying to work out the kinks in solidifying the Topre stem though, as in its current form it doesn't lend itself to casting with my system very well. Comes out too flimsy. I don't have the precision to pull off a stem like Bro's or CC's, might try something more like Hipster's and see if I can get that to work.

Nope! Haven't used any release agent thus far, though it'd probably help to extend the longevity of some of these molds.

When I'm making the molds I use a layer of vaseline between the two silicone halves, but that's it.

Oh yeah I was thinking of like using olive oil or something  :p, ended up just ordering a proper silicone release agent. You can see how much the vacuum helps with your caps no more bubbles.

Really helps for the silicone as well, it pulls it into little holes and crevices allowing for surface detail to not be lost. Makes the mold seem more durable / dense as well.

But in all honesty probably not; I kind of did that early to give incentive since I couldn't really gauge demand well. At this point I want to try and keep things as open as possible.
