My attempt at painting camo with no airbrush. Not what I imagined, but it was fun to do! Love these Cada molds! They always perform so well!!

Whew! Big run the last two days! Probably won’t make more until next week. But I’ve got so many new molds I want to use! I do t often do repeats, but I did a few customer favorites this round. And everything has rainbows!! My hands are tired though!

Couldn’t wait to test this one. This mold was a special request I ask just fairy dizzies to make. Used up some older embed powder and I’m surprised how pale it was. You can probably tell it’s the colors on the top and left. These floated really well co sideri g they only dried for 24 hrs!
💯

How can you do all that while still being weak from covid? You should be resting. These are amazing, but still, your health is so much more important than all this. If I could hug you I would.

This is the first of anything I’ve made in two weeks. It felt great to finally do something! I was pooped afterwards though. Finally testing clear, and I’ll be back at my day job this week. So, I’m happy to have some product ready to paint.

These are such a PIB to paint. But they’re worth it! The giant one is the first vacuum form mold I bought about a year ago. I packed it so full, it was almost a pound, and it sunk like a rock! I thought I’d try it again with the things I’ve learned since then. Pressing just a thin layer into the details and then lightly packing the rest. I’m wondering if it’ll float. The small ones are the 4” version and the large one is 6”. Small weighs 5oz, large weighs 15oz.

My new airbrush came today and I’m shocked at how much better it was than my cheaper model!! It was an actual joy to use, instead of constant frustration. It was how I’d always thought airbrushing should be, instead of the chore it’d become! I’m so excited that I can actually practice enough to get better now, instead of constantly battling with my machine. My old machine didn’t even airbrush, it sputter brushed! And the coverage is so even and smooth! I’m super stoked with my purchase!!

Had a hard time with the manatee tails and the flare on the hair dryer. They kept wanting to break at the narrow part. But my mix was fairly workable. With a real soft touch I was able to push them back together. I keep working on them as they hardened and separated again. Now they seem fused finally. But they’ll probably be weak in that narrow bit. Gonna have to figure out how to make those narrow joints stronger without packing the mold too hard so they sink.
Tested the cute zombie mold with my left over bits.
And used the skulls when the pink started getting dry because the hair dryers took so long.
