Creating Resin Stars from Start to Finish
Not shown – sculpting and moldmaking.
PART I – Resin Casting
I've been mold-making and casting stars all weekend. I didn't record any of the sculpting and mold-making stuff because it takes pretty much an entire day, but I thought I'd do some quick time lapse videos of the resin process and the million steps it takes to go from nothing to a sparkling, decorated, finished star princess star. It'll take a while as I wait for additional supplies but I'll keep updating when I can :) Part 1 ~ Here's casting 1 round out of many rounds (stars are needed for the skirt, bodice, mask, AND tiara!) in Featherlite resin.
PART 2 – Trimming Edges
Part 2: after the resin sits for 2 hours, it is removed. I trim off any overhang on the edges with a sharp knife. x times a million stars :) at one point it was like that scene in Edward Scissorhands with the ice carving and snow, except with castings and resin shavings, LOL. Tomorrow will be priming and painting and sealing, if I'm able to get my hands on all three of those things. The primer is specially ordered, but I'll post more about that later.
