SWEET! The ice blue color makes it look like it could be a highly polished stone. The Tormentos are going to love those!

Go, Girl!

It looks like Lapis Lazuli....very nice!
I mentioned it in my thread too, but I had to move Hoku Ili back into my workshop cause the sun was making him go urine yellow! I only recently noticed how he looks a lot like some of the two-faced classical Marquesan pieces...and the controlled depth you put into the modelling is a joy to behold when he's lit up. Now please make some more stuff!

Thanks Benz! I get what you mean
Thanks Freddie! I've made some other color as well
Thanks Bowana! you are my rock, Higly polished
Thanks Paipo!
It looks like Lapis Lazuli....very nice!
Oh I think you just like me a lot thanks!
Hoku went urine yellow?! are you sure it was the sun and not your other activities !
Thanks Tim, they are releasing their new album the 24 of may, so I've being using the last warm days we have to try to make a lot, now is so chilly is very hard to work with resin..
Thanks seeksurf, no he is not glow in the dark, and Billy either, he has a little candle inside that make him glow

Here are some of the color I've made


And i'm starting a new crazy project, where I'm going to try to turn the original Tormento candle desing in to plaster mold material, to make a mug
This is the candle design

So a melted plasticine and pore it in to the mold i have and started working on it
this is just started

I have progresses for there some more
I know Babalu is not going to be proud of me working in plasticine instead of clay, but i wanted to have all the time to work on it with out having to be worried about it drying to much...
The thing is that the plasticine I'm using is to soft, so i'm thinking i'm going to have trouble taking the plaster mold later. I was planning on varnishing it to make it more resistant but Bowana save me from that telling me it was going to stick to the plaster!an less a apply some soap or release on it...
So, I'm not planing on making a limited edition, because this would be for a bar here that has the Tormento drink, and for the tormentos to use too for their press kits and such. so what I'm thinking is that I'm going to varnish it, and take a silicon mold, so i can make a plaster copie from that (and be able to make all the copies to use as master, I could need in time) and from the plaster copy try to make the plaster mold, and if i break it, i wouldn't loose the master I could just make an other...
This is going to be a long journey for me, we'll see how all this go...
Wish me luck please, and any tips would be very much appreciated
Thanks for looking!

Well the mob asked for it, and now you are doing it!! Clarita mugs!!! I'm sure you will do a great job and I can't wait to drink a Tormento out of one at Mundo Bizarro!

And those pendants look so tasty I could chew into one right now!

Suerte!

Looking good, Clarita! It looks like you will soon be venturing into the exciting and sometimes unpredictable world known as Moldland! Huzzah!

Hey Kiddo,

I'm very proud of you for giving that oil based clay a go! I think that it is really fun to work with, and I think you will be able to get way more fine detail with it than you will with water based clays.

Bowana and I have talked about starting a thread (a tag team effort) showing how we made past plaster molds. Bowana is really the master mold maker and has taught me a great deal on the process. I did a fairly good picture documentation on the molds we built at one of the Chops. I have a little time right now while I'm on this road trip in the mornings, and have the pictures in my laptop. I will see if I can start something up in the "other crafts area" a little later on and as the week progresses. It may take several posts to get all of the pictures out that I have, but it should be fun. I'm sure Bowana will want to add pictures and information as I post as well.

There have been a several folks out there that have asked both of us if we could share this information, and we would be more than happy to help others out if we can.

Stay tuned...

Great start on this one Clarita!
