Lets paint some resin! Here are the resin pieces just taken out from the silicone molds. As you can see, they are quite transparent. All of them: I applied a base coat of very dark mate gray and a coat of acrylic paint (metallic copper): Here is the process including the copper rust effect: Base coat of dark gray or black + copper A coat of green/blue acrylic paint mix Then remove the green/blue paint with a wet rag before it dries Finally, apply judea bitumen and then take if off with mineral spirits To be continued!
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!
