1st February 2014: Resin Gems: WIP Me and my crafty bff Amy aka Bakenekoya have spent the evening productively; making resin gems and drinking :P
This has been a huge step for me and my cosplay. Amy is so talented when it comes to sculpting and resin casting, so I asked if I could borrow her expertise and learn how to cast some simple gems for my Lina, DotA 2 cosplay.
She taught me how to sculpt and sand correctly, how to use a simple modelling sculpting paste as opposed to her normal mould making method and then what the end result would be with a simple normal resin. The result was amazing!
Now I need to have a go with this mould and Crystal Resin, so we’ll se how that goes :D
