    Cold Casting: What am I doing wrong?

    You can fix bubbles in cold cast parts. Use the old CA trick but with your metal and not talc. Keep in mind that the repaired section will be shinier when polished since it is almost entirely metal.

    Eye of Agamotto Build

    And we are done! Here are my final pictures. I did manage to create an LED effect per m y customers request. Since the LED was so close to the gem piece, I could not get it diffused enough, It just looked like an LED so I recommended to the customer to go with the more accurate central...

    Thanks Effigey! Molding and casting My original plan was to create 2 part molds for all of the parts but the center eye. More specifically, my clever plan included using the sprue that filled the vent holes as alignment pins to connect the front and back pieces as well as connecting the...

    Four horseman and the Devil The next two images show my four prototype masters and how they fit together. It was at this point that I noticed some discrepancies in the previously perfect fit between the front and back. Not sure was what was going on and with a deadline looming I pressed...

    Eye of Agamotto Build

    Eye center piece I sculpted the center eye from clay on the disk cut previously and made the center dome using a red measuring spoon. Again, I chose to make a throw away mold, Can anyone spot my heresy? Here is a better picture of the mold. Next: The four horsemen

    Back to the back. Well finally decided to get a bench top sander to replace my little buddy. This allowed me to finally smooth the back and join the two pieces using carpet double sided tape. This allowed me to sand the profiles on both pieces at once so they mated properly. Alas this...

    Grill While trying to find a replacement sander, I had to keep the project moving so I decided to start on the grill. Using the top from a thermos bottle from Walmart, I laid out my design and then sacrificed the jumpers from my bread board kit to compete the overlapping bars. There is a...

    Eye of Agamotto Build

    Back Piece I cheated a bit and didn't sculpt a back piece but instead pulled a 1/2 full piece from the front piece mold. I had planned on sanding it down and making it mate the front piece. But then mistakes happened. 1) Don't use left over resin that's been on the shelf for who knows how...

    Eye of Agamotto Build

    Front Piece sculpt I decided to sculpt the front piece as 3/4's of the total thickness. This allowed me to avoid getting two halves to match perfectly in the center considering the decorative edge around the whole thing. Sculpting a perfect circle is almost impossible by hand. I chose to...

    Design Decisions First decision is how big to make it. This was not an easy task as there are no scaling references in the pictures. So I decided to scale it to my customer. I sent drawings back and forth to my customer until we found a size that fit his frame. Gere is another mistake i...

    Research The provided source material were a couple of low resolution shots from filming and the Entertainment Weekly shots we've all seen. That will just will not do. To borrow a phrade from Mister Holmes, "Data Data Date. One cannot make bricks without clay." So off to wield my...
