Most I deair but sometimes I just go with the pressure casting

Latest batch, new mold, some came out better then others. I'm redoing the mold on 2 of them. Still having fun.

Oh, and a one off batch, my niece Lark wanted blue with purple glitter, I couldn't refuse!

I've started experimenting with color, I got a tip that lite color will help to cover imperfections. This was a little too much color, the batch currently cooking has a lighter coloring. Fun!

So after the mint green batch I had an idea. What would happen if I added one drop of black to the whole batch? Would it be just enough to mask any imperfections. I like the result. And I ordered better resin now that I'm getting my technique down. I've been using industrial grade marine resin, it's cheap! But I ordered some diamond sparkling clear artists resin, so it should only get better from here!

Ok, so it's not clear yet, since the mold is curing, but eagle eyed folks will see a green 914 in the mold. These will be free, so the line forms now.

Not very happy with how the 914 came out, I think the paint is messed up from earlier tries, I think I'm going to try with another car and a new mold.

I cleaned up the mold a little bit but can't decide if I'm going to redo it, they are coming out ok, not perfect. What do you guys think?

After much trial and error I think these are ready to be freebies at the next swap meet!

The latest, the 904, and this one hurt. Try buying a 904 miniature, people are very serious about them!
