keep up the good work! Hopefully you're okay from the resin accident on your face :(. I know sometimes this is just a waiting game. Sigh.

I'm hot on the issue of the green. It still remains the hindrance of this project. Keeping the pigment percentage to 3-5% has reduced some issues. But I am now thinking the temperature of the resin (and surrounding room) is a little low. So I will try to get warmer some how.


EDIT: thinking about doing some less-than-perfect sets for a lower price. my pile of green and blue is growing.

RGB Failure Pile:



Blue Success: Not so great indoor light pic

Some of these might not make the cut.
There is variances between sets but not within sets. I made them in their sets so it would not be possible to have non-matching colours.


I also made quite a perfect red escape which I am quite proud of.

Also pictured is a really nice colour combination that I haven't been able to recapture. It looks great in person.


RGB sets might be slightly on hold (just more delayed really) but I might sell a couple of Fn's soon if anyone's interested.

Any chance you'd be willing to sell some of the defective ones that are still usable?

I would definitely be interested in picking up a few Fn's. What colors would they be?

So I have fairly confidently identified my main obstacle as temperature. I was talking to the person who I bought the pigment off and they were doing all these tests and they off handedly mentioned that the temperature had recently gone down. This does seem to make sense. I just have to increase the temperature by a couple of degrees but this is easier said than done.

I have never heard this. Are you talking about post-cure temp or room temp while casting?

Both I think. Resin should have an optimum operating temperature.


I'm not really confident either way at the moment. I have heated my resin to be more at 23 degrees and the results were mildly better. I am now thinking it might just be an unfortunate combination of factors. Possibly the pigment is just much harder to work with. But there was a definite turning point. Because I was making  fine green stuff at one point.


Today I made a couple of new moulds and powdered pigment it seemed to turn out fine.

I just entered a request for 3 of them.
I put the postal address as my family's address in the UK, as I'll be visiting over christmas (2 weeks away), and so would rather save on the shipping (tracked shipping is understandably expensive).
Apologies this is my first time buying, what's the next step?

Got my RGB "defects" a few day ago. Holy crap they look good - especially considering they were defects. A few of them were a bit crooked, but that's basically it.

Got a new green pigment. It's not quite the colour I wanted and still doesn't really work that well.



This is a test using different amounts of the pigment. The bottom uses less and seemed fairly stable but not the colour I want. The top uses 3x the amount and although a slightly stronger colour it started weeping.


I'm back to thinking that temperature might be a factor as it has only gotten colder.

I actually have a few of these. The detail is incredible, though i did have a bit of trouble with them fitting in some ESC key slots or by other keys. Even if they were a proof of concept, there is still lots of potential :)

Hey RP

So any updates on the RGB mods set from last year?
I'm still holding out hope for it lol.

(Btw can I change the address you have on file for me for that order?)

Thanks
