    Leftovers once again

    Another surprise from a leftover PR pour. The leftover resin was poured into a pvc pipe. It wasn't long enough for a full length pen so I added a comfort grip. You just never know what lies waiting underneath an otherwise plain looking pr rod. :smile:

    Casting is like a box of chocolates

    With apologies to Forest Gump .... you just never know what you are going to get when you cast PR. Having done a cast using four different colors, I ended up with a little bit of three colors left over. I keep some pvc tubes ready for the extra. The rod on top is the same as the one used on the...

    PR casts 3,4 and 5 today

    Got a day above 50 degress ... barely .... so I did some more casting. I'n not sure how I feel about the results yet .... I think I will withhold judgement until I have rounded a few over to see what's inside. :smile:

    Saturn from Leftover PR

    When I made my initial casting I didn't mix up enough extra resin to allow for what sticks to the cup, stirring stick, gloves, :biggrin:, etc. So when I made my second pour I made sure I had enough of the final color.... I poured it in a 3/4" pipe and an old vitamin bottle. The second one was...

    Suggested Vacuum and Pressure rating

    I am starting out in casting world. How much is a good vacuum to pull in a small vacuum pot. Same goes for pressure in a pressure pot; how much pressure is good enough? Thanks Munawar
