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 going to be a bottle stopper but I decided at the last minute to make it into a small ring box. Thanks for looking!:smile:

Very nice. The color you got has a lot of depth and good luster. After turning some cast blanks, and seeing what can be done, I am becoming extremely interested in doing my own casts.

I can't wait to do more myself! :wink:

I would encourage you to jump in!
It's a lot of fun!:biggrin:

I know this sounds weird but that box makes my mouth water. Kinda like tangerine candy or something. I am loving it

Good job with your casting, Lenny! Not one of my favorite colors, but your color saturation and "bling" appeal are outstanding!

I agree with the post about making my eyes water and thoughts of tangerine candy!

I recommend you get yourself an overpour or "spit bucket" for the left over PR resin. I have one 4 inches in diameter and 6 inches tall. When the "spit bucket" gets full of multicolored leftovers, I turn them into wine glass stems.

Spit bucket wine glasses are the envy of our neighborhood and I have orders for a wine glass from all the ladies in the neighborhood.

Andy, do you turn away all that resin to make the wine stem?

I must admit I've had a wine stem project planned. (for SWMBO), for awhile now .... never found a chunk of wood big enough that I thought was suitable. :smile:

Yes, Lenny. Right now, I am turning away all that PR. It was waste anyway. Another member here is making me a vertical wine glass mold, so I can still make spit bucket wine glasses without having to turn away so much material.

When I pick up my molds, I'll send you one if you want to duplicate it.

Very cool looking on both Lenny. Wow you are coming up with some great casting blanks! I really like the color on this one. Well done on the pen and the ring box, both look great!
