Prepping the Quad Stug

Today I’m sanding and prepping the Quad Stug.  I’m going to see if I can’t get the molds done this weekend and start casting next week.  This toy has been waiting to be made long enough.

Ventilation!

I was pretty scared of playing with resin in my basement.  With casting toys and painting stuff, I had nightmares of these noxious green fumes wafting up throughout the house making everyone sick.  But now I don’t need to worry. […]

Making Toys! Pressure Pot

I now have a pressure pot.  It’s just a big pot that you can put under pressure for when you make a casting in rubber or cast resin.  It’s needed to squeeze out all the air bubbles.  Mine is a […]
