    Hi everyone, this is the first time I write on this Forum. I'm Italian and I apologize in advance for my English.

    Recently I made the Agents of Shield Crystal and would like to share with you the result achieved.
    First of all I did a test with a simple crystal forms and superficial cuts.

    I used a 3D printer and I finished all the surface carefully to eliminate print lines.

    Then the way I have done a lot of tests of color. The resin that use takes 10 days to harden , but the result is a unique gloss and transparency .

    From there I started to do various tests for the black part within the crystal.

    After seeing that the crystal could be done I created a new form detailed and precise to the original.

    And finally after a lot of tests I was able to recreatet this crystal. Unfortunately the type of resin that I use erodes easily the silicone and its average duration is a few uses.

    What do you think about it?

    wow, that is awesome.

    How did you get the resin to work like that?
    I mean with the black and stuff?

    They look very good, congratulations I think you are the first to get a Terrigen crystal made that closely matches the original prop in colour and shape.

    I couldn't quite tell from your photos but did you include the angled chipped off looking part at the base of your crystal?

    This is an early render I did before adding the rest of the cracks, it has the sort of chipped looking part at the base of the crystal the same as the original prop, I was just wondering if you included that in your second model?

    I honestly do not think I can manage to recreate the corner in the same way , because I make my casting from the base .
    To simulate the cut I practice sanding subsequent hardening resin but is a uniform angle, not like in your 3D model. I hope that I explained.

    A copper wire, which you can twist easily. Obviously colored :)
