Really? What's your user name? I'll follow back.

Working on these Max pendants, I realize that my original idea of hand painting a Max replica is not very cost effective. It took me over an hour to paint the full color version of Max, so I can't really sell it at an affordable price. So I tried to do a more monotone Max in a color I can only call Banana Brown. I like the way it looks and I can paint it much faster.

Very cool Max pendent, Zero! There are a few techniques you could try in order to do a faster streamlined process: you could try staining them with something like watered down ink, or dye, or you could try to do a airbrush paint method where you do the largest areas with the airbrush and then small things like the rope hand touched up. This is how chalkware and old carnival booth cast items from the 30's and 40's were done. They often used stencils in conjunction with airbrushing to do medium to small areas as well. A lot of time there was a bit of over spray, but it sort of added to the hand made charm.

@luckythepainproofman

It's tiki, sideshow, casting/moldmaking, woodworking, and general chicanery. I do my best to post only original photographs, and am rather selective about what I like/who I follow, so as to not clog up the works.

What type of resin are you making him out of?

Thanks Tigertail. I'm sure there are ways to streamline the process, but I like to get in there with a fine brush and add lots of detail. There's no real shortcut for that I think!

I'll look you up now! These last casts I've done are not resin but Dry Stone. I've asked around the tiki art community quite a bit and find that there's no lasting way to hand paint resin. So I've decided to go with the heavier, more fragile but easier to paint Dry Stone.

Worked on a few new colors for my Moai and Reverb God pendants.



Also, after mentioning here that I wasn't going to make anymore full color Max pendants, I have received several requests for them both here and on facebook. I have taken a few orders and listed it at my store (although current inventory is 0). I've priced it at $35 shipped within the U.S. I'm afraid that's the best I can do as painting this pendant in full color takes me quite a bit of time. A monotone version is available for $20.

Also primed a few other stuff today!

Monster Cast.

Used in the SFX industry. I use it all the time. It paints quite nicely, cures in 5 minutes, and you can paint it with just about anything. Also, it can be tinted easily with So-Strong pigment from Smooth-On.

It's an off white to begin with. Almost a tan. You could dry brush it with brown acrylic and have at it. It drills well if you're careful while drilling, and is pretty tough. It's cheaper than the stuff you can get from TPI.

You can get it from Monster Makers.

If you'd like, I can snap a few photos of pieces I have at work tomorrow.

Would love to see a few pics. How does it hold the paint though? The reason I don't want to do these in resin is that sooner or later the paint ribs off. The Dry Stone I use seems to hold up nicely.

Hey Robert, are those metal signs likely to be "outdoor safe"? My tiki space is on the lanai which has kind of limited my art choices to ceramic and wood. It would be nice to have another option.
