Today… yet another tale of epic failure… So… I´ve always heard that “silicone only sticks to silicone”, which I guess might be true with hi quality smoth-on or similar products but I don’t have access to all those futuristic materials so I´m left with a piece of crap silicone that sticks to absolutely any and all materials, maybe someone could use it to find dark matter since I bet it will stick to it.. I usually use talcum as mold release, it both makes it super easy to separate the recin piece from the silicone mold and also gives the pieces a fantastic rough finish which is abolutely wonderfull to paint… Today, I idiotically decided to try making one piece without any release and test the whole silicone sticks-to-silicone-thing, it all went to hell pretty fast… Look at that shit! Now learn from my sadness! To be continued… = (
Let me tell you another story of failure… so you learn from my fuckups… So… I need to make several books and I do not enjoy dyeing all that paper one by one, thus I tried inventing some SUPER clever way to do all the pages at once… So… mosquito net… Cut it into page size pieces… Made a page-moquito/net sandwich… Secured it with elastic bands… And then came the FAIL… I put the whole thing into the usal coffe bath I normally use but the water didn’t even got to all the pages.. so you can see the white parts… suuuucks… Also, the pages that did got correctly dyed were so soked that got destroyed by the water… doble FAIL I think that instead of the normal very low water bath i used this process might work if the WHOLE block was completly submeged in coffe. Who knows… maybe someone is willing to prepare a whole tub of coffe… Back to single page dyeing for now… P.D. If you have some awesome technique of mass paper coloring, please let me know!
