I bought mine from a company called Accu-cast. They specalize in molding and life casting materials. They have very reasonable prices as well. If you do a search for "lifecasting" I'm sure you'll find a seller.
hello i am yet another person who thought it wasa penis andwoza littlerelectent to clik on it, but it wasnt so all good. then i read the comments an yer thought it wozreally ur finger, which woulda been pretty kool, but also would start to smell after a while. any way really kool an i lokie it lotz
Thanks for the tips. But I don't think I'll have to worry about going outside. I was up all night taking pictures outside in a heavy shirt and jeans. Was great out. I live in Minnesota too, not even a foot of snow on the ground. Course, its only in the 20s...
I'll have to try this out, first plaster, then maybe resin. Once again, thanks for the tips and for replying.
Well, as far as the temprature goes I believe the resin works best at about 65-75 F with low humidity. The cold might keep it from setting up properly. Summer or Spring would be the best time to resin cast unless you have something like an auto body shop with professional air vents to work in.
Thanks again man, I really appreciate it. I haven't been able to see if I can even get my hands on some resin yet but I know the plaster is no problem. Maybe I'll have to wait till spring just for proper temperatures. This really does look like a great deal of fun just from the jokes that could be played with a fake thumb or finger. Or maybe even a foot if so lucky.
Thanks once more man. Best wishes.
I was one of the few that actually saw this as a finger when I first saw the thumbnail of it...
Very awesome! The detail is incredible, and actually I think the idea of having a finger keychain is pretty snazzy... you get to hold your own finger when you carry your keys! This thought amuses me for some reason ^_^
Also a neat memento for the future, you can watch any changes over time as they happen.
The yellowing effect actually adds a neat twist to it, but it would be cool to see a clear version if you manage to get your hands on some later on.
I agree about the yellowing... while a nice clear one would be really pretty, very crystal-like in appearance I'd imagine... the yellow makes it very original. Every part has its own unique twinge of colour, and every piece you make will be different even if from the same mold.
