Default Aluminium mesh

Quite pleased how these came out.
First casting was 2 colour blue in epoxy but then switched to polyester resin.
Personally I prefer the finish on PR although many don't seem to like to work with it.

Visited your page, wonderful blanks but the postage would be a bit high to this side of the pond. You folks in the UK have a very nice local supplier. Thanks for sharing.

Default Those are nice!

Those are really nice casts of honeycomb! Have you tried to add some other things with the honeycomb to make them even more interesting hybrids like pine cones, pine needles, magnolia pods or
doing multiple 4-5 flip cup pours, etc?.

I have done some combination hybrids in this way - it really opens up new horizons on what you come up with!

Did these ones a few weeks ago. Wider mesh off cuts from when I changed the mesh on my laser bed.

those are gorgeous. I have something similar made of plastic that I got from a freezer that was being dismantled. the heat from casting poly resin turned it brittle and it started disintegrating when I turned it. I ordered some epoxy resin and will try that.
