Ork Glyphs 1

Been a while since I did any moulds or cast any bits so it is a bit overdue getting something new done.

After the other night when I spent hours cutting and carving ork glyphs I thought it would be very handy if I had a mould of them allowing me to cast glyphs as I needed.

So first job was carving some glyphs out of 1mm styrene. I used 12mm squares as the base so all of them would sit alongside each other ok. For some of them I did a couple of versions.

I kept them all 'clean' - by this I mean I didn't distress them. Instead I will do that to the cast pieces allowing me to get some variety into the castings. I added rivets though I now many will not come out on the castings, any that do save me a bit of time.

All the glyphs glued to a piece of recycled styrene.
I then got the moulding box set up using lego and plasticene.

Lego - Denmarks greatest contribution to the world.
24 hours to cure should see me casting the first set off tomorrow night.

Fingers crossed...

  2. What do you use for the mold making and casting compounds? Your casting is top notch.

    I get my casting materials from

    The rubber I use is Grade 380
    The resin I use is Grade G26

    I hope that is useful.
