Re: Dwarfs + Gobbos + Elfs

It looks great in the photos - but I can imagine the bubbles and the 'miniscus' (getting all scientific heh!) would upset me after all that work. Resin is a pain; I did a stint in a boatyard and mixing it well is an art form in itself - and it's even harder in small quantities. I never really got the hang of it.

Even in that industry good old Plasticine is used to seal the tricky bits of resin molds because its easy to work and smooth up, sticky enough to stay put and firm enough to wax over so you can get the cast out again. No idea if its practical here though?

Re: Dwarfs + Gobbos + Elfs

Thanks for comments guys always appreciated

@Protist : It the same old problem trying to turn an idea into reality. I can live with the bubbles its the fact I had to trim away the edge that really bugs me LOL. I can't believe I didn't think of using plasticine !!!

So moving onwards I've managed to get the bridge nearly finished just needing some highlights and glazes in areas, but its now glued in place so thought I'd take a quick photo.

I've also been working on another Gimli rider I had lying about. I've mainly been seeing just what I can do with greenstuff so on this one I've remodelled the helmet completely and also worked on extending the cloak.

So finished off the second Gimli. The pony needed some work to get Gimli to fit, this involved cutting in half and extending by a few millimetres and also removing the bottom of the mane so Gimli's beard and hand fitted.

Re: Dwarfs + Gobbos + Elfs

Nice finished article, but is that the same pony you originally started with, or did you change it?
