ShouJu first mold pulls...

Here is my first pull for the arms and head, the body mold got distorted...I hope to have a new one done real soon! This is a plain stand in for now.

FYI if you are using two different types of Dragon Skin Silicone for molds (mine were quick and Medium set), I accidently put medium over curing quick, and even though I molded under pressure the degassing quick set Dragon Skin bubbled up my second half of the mold...

I plan to get the body mold done this week, though with the holiday it might be next weekeund (the bonus being I am off work next Friday!) the other pic is a really shoddy idea of the paint job... I know it's rough :)

Height: 3.75 inches
Material: Soft vinyl like polyurethane
Articulation: Three points (arms and head)

I am so delinquent! The real world has been kickin’ my little hiney… work (yea I have a real job), family, the holidays and a botched mold… So I got ShouJu’s head and arms molded and they are spectariffic! I will post some in progress pix in a bit… I have to rebuild the body mold so the full figure is delayed a bit. I am also struggling with paint for this particular Polyurethane he’ll be made of… but I think I may have found a breakthrough today… Anywho Pix to come fo sho!
