Default Honeycomb Blues Cigar

Having fun with the honeycomb mesh... Mesh was cast with Alumilite with a variety of colored mica powders mixed in. Back painted with a baby blue.

Nice color mix and the two tone cigar parts are perfect for that blank.

Have you given thought to pouring the resin into the mold and swirling the colours in the usual way and then putting the honeycomb into the resin?

That would certainly be possible, but haven't tried it. I think I prefer the effect it has being poured onto the grid - the random way you get occasional complete color separation from a different color in a neighboring cell. I also like how you get different blends and shades of color, since the mix in each cell is often different than it's neighbor.

When I poured onto the grid, I just drizzled random patterns with each color in turn. As i got to the latter colors, obviously it was more about "filling up" cells that weren't full yet.
