Remold progress and test pours today

3DJohnny has been working on the remold of THOR and today its time for a progress report.

My goal for this re-mold is to minimize any registration errors and air pockets. By doing this I intend to drastically reduce cleanup time and increase production time because a healthy stockpile of THOR for SDCC2011 will be nice to have. Plus there is a queue of other ideas and commissions that have been patiently waiting and really need some love.

The first "production" mold taught me a lot about how the process of making a silicone mold goes, and this one will probably teach me even more. I feel much more confident about this version and it will be exciting to see how the test pours turn out today!

These photos are just a few progress shots of the new molds. ill get a shot of the whole set once im done with em all.

Nothing like some 8 oz nails to really drive home the point...

But seriously I think I nailed it this time

no stupid puns here.

DCON 2010: Best con or BEST CON?

We really had a great time at DCON. 3DJohnny got to catch up with a lot of old friends and made some new ones. Spankystokes as always hooked it up and shared some of his booth space so we could display THOR. Did a couple of trades with some incredibly talented artists and designers such as SawdustBear and Steve Talkowski.

Now its time to prepare for SDCC 2011. 3 big projects on our plate and of course, MORE THOR.
Ive already started on the upgraded molds for THOR so ill have way less cleanup and faster production, woohaa!

Lets try our best and get everything done.

For you!

Anyhow, heres some photos of the stuff that caught my eye at DCON. Some are terribly blurry!

LBCC Sculpey sketches

Just some stuff I did to pass the time between talking to folks.

I had a lot of fun networking this year and I met a really sick artist that I hope to be able to work with in the future. Check out some of Emonic's work here and on the Ferric Press site. So nice!
