I've had this account for a while now but I mostly used it to browse other artist's work. I'm using this DA account to post photos now instead of just browse other people's stuff is that there are some amazing prop artists on DA and it would be nice to be able to compliment them on their work without having to use an account with absolutely no info. "Some anonymous person with no info likes your work" isn't as meaningful as "some guy who also does something similar and can appreciate what you went through to get the effects you got".

Also, I'm surprised that the jpgs store camera and image editing software data. Neat.

Also also, if you're reading this and like beautiful paintjobs on Nerf guns, check out electronicsgenius.blogspot.com… this guy, his work is amazing and he puts a lot of time into adding dents/scratches to the plastic before painting!

I'm not a fan of chain letters, but this one's kind of a neat idea. I got it from ~Adnarimification (https://www.deviantart.com/adnarimification) 1. For each of the first ten people to comment on this journal, I will put their avatar and the three deviations I like most from their gallery on the list! If you would like to suggest your own deviations, feel free to do so. I'll be doing the first 10 responses. 2. If you answer, you have to do the same in your journal, putting the tagger on the first place. The idea of this is not simply getting a free feature, but spreading art around for everyone! If you haven't followed these amazing people, go do so. Now! 1: :iconcuecarddave: :t

I hope you don't mind my bothering you about pressure casting.

1. When resin is pressure cast and the bubbles are shrunk down, is the volume of the air inside the bubble actually being compressed inside the resin, or is the air being squeezed out of the resin and into areas inside the pot with less mass? The reason I ask this is because if the volume of the air really is being compressed inside the resin, wouldn't that make the resin extremely explosive if you were to accidentally (or intentionally) break the cured resin? Aren't they essentially air bombs?

2. What keeps the air pressure inside the pot during the curing time? What prevents a backflow into the compressor? Can the hose be removed from the pressure pot during the curing time without losing pressure? Or will the air escape in a sudden and explosive manner through the nozzle where the hose was connected?

3. Assuming the compressor tank and pressure pot are the same volume, and the compressor reads 60 psi, when you open the valve from the compressor, and the air enters the pressure pot, will the gauge on the pressure pot read 30 psi? Or does the full 60 psi somehow enter the pressure pot?

I am a complete amateur at this, and have never used a compressor in my life.
Thanks a lot for providing so much inspirational stuff! Your woodgrain tuto helped me so much on my first try to get this effect, even if I still far from your results.
Cool, you're welcome! The woodgrain takes practice and experimentation to determine what works best for you.
Awesome gallery you have here! :D
Thank you! I keep pretty busy. :3
Thank you so much for the fave! :D
You're welcome! I'm looking forward to seeing more of your cosplay!
