Nicely done

Thanks, Derek!
Yeah, ATP pretty much talked me into it. It was a big, unexpected purchase, but when you see something rare and vintage, you gotta jump on it or you may never find one again. Thanks for the shove, Lance.

Spike.
How do you make the chunks? What are you molding? Did you hand carve them? Or did you mold rubber/silicone then break it up by hand, and then mold that to pour the resin into?
I'm weighing my options right now as to how to go about it.

It is "Castin' Craft" resin that I then pour into tupperware containers to set. Once it hardens, I break the crunks up with a hammer.

The Castin Craft stuff makes it a pretty expensive art proj. Like $30 for one batch of the stuff, and you need about two batches of it. Not horrible if you are making it for yourself. Too expensive to make it worth it to sell though (unless I can find another source for hard curing tintable resin).

That's the quick version. Hope it points you in the right direction!!

Mahalo!

I was definitely over-thinking it. The answer is yes, there's a lot more cost effective resins. Molding/casting is one of the things I do at work everyday. Hence why I was WAY over-thinking it. I'll give it a try with some resins and post the results at some point in the next month or two.

Aloha!

Please do! I tried some other resin that I found at Home Depot too... Wasn't too impressed with it.
There's a place around here that does boat repairs and I guess they sell a ton of resin there. Haven't looked into it yet...

Absolutely man. I'm on vacation the next two weeks, but maybe I'll sneak into work and make a lamp.
I've got a moai mold that would look nice with the chunks.

Nice to finally have some music in there!!

I ordered a few types of resin.
There's one that's only semi-transparent that I think will diffuse the light really well.
I'll keep you updated!
