Frog Eats Monkey WIP – Casting 03

After many trials and many errors, I finally figured out the proper amount of resin to mix up and pour. Also figured out how to get the air bubbles out of the feet. I drilled a second, smaller hole in the mold to let air bubbles out which seems to work well. I will know to keep that in mind next time I make a mold of this guy.

It's going to take a lot of work to get them in shape for customizing. Lost of sanding, cutting, filling, etc. But I've been learning a lot from the whole mess. Hopefully next time I'll make better molds so that I won't have to do so much finishing.
