Photoshop'd huh. It looks real to me. You probably could have passed it off as so.

Finally got around to finishing my custom Astronema after two years in the making. She's started off as a Jessica Priest figure, a recipe I've seen used in the past.



I sanded away all the detail on her arms and legs as well as her hair. Details were filled in with apoxie and she was given X-3 Jean Grey hair.



I also crafted several accessories for her:



I built a tiny magnet into her upper thigh as well as the weapons as well.

Want to see what you get when you burn a hundred bucks?



Turns out, my resin has a slight problem with shrinkage. Subsequently, my master is too small, with the finished castings even more so. The brass retards the shrinkage a bit, but not enough to make the finished coins compatible. And that is how you kill a dream.

Oh, anything in particular? I've already cast some extras, even if they're 5% too small, for finishing and weathering practice; it'll be no problem to make some more.

I'm working on recreating my master so that I can produce Morpher functional coins, but that's going slowly.

GOKAI CHANGE.... GORYUJIN!!


This thing lacked so much paint so I added the majority. My awesome small weapons cusomizers Zedd ** cough ** Zedd. You make it look easy... THAT JUNK IS HARD!

Hope You like =)

(special thanks to Birca for providing me with the black gash key I needed to make this happen)

12" Figures

Hey there people, I was at a toy fair on sunday and managed to pick up 4 12" ranger figures, 3 are talking dino thunder, (White, Black and Triassic) and one is SPD Red Swat Mode. I thought it was a really good find, the only problems I had was the weapons were REALLY bland looking, Molded good, but no paint, as you can see:


Black Dino not shown as it is missing a Brachio staff which I am currently looking to find somewhere.

So I decided to paint up their weapons, here's how they turned out.


Only 1 side of the Delta Blaster is painted as there were so many colours and it needs alot of time to cure.

And here's the Rangers with their painted weapons, I think they look 10x better:

Thanks! =)

Spare keys, mix and morph pieces, DREMEL, paint, sculpting putty, etc.

Nothing is more heart breaking than seeing a ranger key get DESTROYED with a dremel =/ . So I had to make it count.

Haha, I'm confidant that this is still salvageable. Usually resin shrinkage isnt a huge problem, what brand are you using? I'd say to just fix the master a bit, and remold (if possible...?). I know that molding/casting can get pricey, but $100 should get you plenty of supplies for a small thing like that. You didn't burn through all your supplies yet did you?

I'm trying it again, and I'm sure I can finish the project, but damn... what a letdown. And $40 of the budget was just for the brass powder. Regardless, I'm making headway on my new masters. I've restructured the police department with prime candidates. I'm confident I can go to prototype within 90 days.

Wait, wrong franchise.

I should have new molds within three or four days.
