Children's play area?
Heh, but the arched gateway makes a great backdrop! Taken at Michigan Renaissance Festival, Sunday Sept. 2. I'm on the left, and on the right is the always-magnificent Kendrick (…)
Seems like the best way to show the process. The original sculpt is there, with the containment barrier mostly still intact from making the mold. The mold is the blue-piece in the middle currently filled with a black-dyed resin that is curing. At the bottom are 3 previous castings, 2 with alumilite, and one with OOMOO's "Color-Match" resin. I suspect I'll be using this mold a good deal more, I really like how the final pieces turned out, and I love the shape of the knives.
It's been a while since I've done something like this, but this was a fun (if somewhat rushed) project.
Merely days before I was to go to the Michigan Renaissance Festival, I decided to add something new to my costume. These are all resins that are cast in a mold, I used Alumilite to make the faux-bone and faux-bronze, while OOMOO's "Color Match" resin was used for the fake-obsidian and fake-glass versions.

I'm not really as cool as this picture.

Current Residence: Michigan, USA
deviantWEAR sizing preference: Small, because I'm short
Favourite genre of music: Most types, classical, alt, metal, folk, jazz, it's all magical
Favourite photographer: Ashamed to admit I don't know as much as I should on this.
Favourite style of art: As you can see, it varies pretty widely
Operating System: Mac OSX
MP3 player of choice: iPod
Wallpaper of choice: Changes daily
Skin of choice: My own
Favourite cartoon character: I'm still a huge Teen Titans fan, but lately I was hooked into both My Little Pony, and Lauren Faust's "Super Best Friends Forever" shorts for Cartoon Network.
Personal Quote: Pick anything by Ben Franklin, I think
Coming out of another fun Renaissance-Festival season. The new costume was a huge hit, much to my surprise, and now I can focus on my favorite holiday: Halloween!

Hopefully I'll have some pictures to share, too.

Thanks, although to be fair, I am only responsible for the design.
I'm not good enough to build all of that. XD
