CC- thanks for the comments.  In looking at this custom closer, I think I need to shorten the neck a little.  I'm also afraid that the head may look a bit too large for the body.  Hopefully when I add a cloak or cape that helps offsite the size a bit.


Cle Tous Enloe is hysterical!  I may be able to try that one.  I think I've got  a police officer body lying around.

I don't want to speak for Glassman, but I can tell you that he's told me that he pours it on with a spoon.  I can tell you from personal experience (just doing it the last two weeks) that you can pour this on and gently remove any bubbles at the surface.  Its much easier than painting on latex (which I've also tried).

If Chewie is out of a computer, image how many custom back logs he'll update for us when it starts working.

As promised I added several more "Haves"

Wow, those guys look amazing.  Your paint detailing looks incredible.  You are a real artist.

But... I could have a major problem.  This morning I tried to get online from my home computer - and realized my computer was off - the monitor was on, and the green light on the hard drive was on, and the monitor said something to the effect of "Monitor is working fine" or whatever, but no power on the hard drive.  So I checked all the cables several times, tried pressing the on/off button on the hard drive several times, etc. - but nothing would work.  Then I turned on and off the power strip probably 5-6 times, and each time no power would go to the hard drive, so my computer won't even start up.  And the D:// drive won't even open... Any idea what the problem might be?  Is my computer completely shot?  It's only 3 years old...

 :P

Uh oh.... I'd get it an electrical labotamy - basically unplug everthing and let it sit for while.  Reconnect it and try powering back on.  It sounds like the PC isn't getting any power, maybe the power supply is bad??  However, its just a guess.  I'm no PC technician.

I think she looks much better this way.  Nice improvement.  Maybe some aliens like their women big -in more ways than one  ;)

I've used both products.  The latex is okay for making molds but I find the process very very tedious.  There is a good tutorial over at FFURG for latex (I'm pretty sure thats where I saw it). 

I absolutely hated the Castin resin.  The problem is the amount of catalyst you need to add depends on the thickness of the piece you are casting.  I never could get the ratios right.  I'm much much happier with the resin I'm using which is a strict A+B equal volume kind.  I got CR-300 (from Micromark I believe).

Plus the Castin resin has an awful ammonia smell.  Blah.

I've gotten some silicone from Smooth On (at Glassman's recommendation) and it works great.  They were superfast shipping too.

Chewie,
I really like the Roronn Cobb and Yareal Poof.  I'd definitely like the recipes on those.  The paint detailing you used on the tunics and robes really makes them stand out!

I think Janesa needs more of neck.  With such an, um, enhanced upperbody her lack of neck makes her look "fat"  .... does this outfit make me look fat?

I like the new Alyssa - again, I'd be interested in the recipe (arms and gloves?)

2533
Ok, here is a movie styled Roron Cobb I finished tonight.  I figure most of the time he would have a robe on.  I know it's not 100% accurate to what he looks like the Clone Wars.


Looks good Justin!  Making use of the new backdrop too I see!

Oops, yes AT-TE gunner.  I corrected above.  Clone Commander, let me know what you can track down as I'm know that I have a few extra Gunners.

I just posted a rather lengthy list of haves/ wants in the trade forum .  Most of these are wanted to bolster my custom fodder.  If there is anything we can mutually agree on, please let me know.  If there are other pieces of figures or weapons that you are specifically looking for let me know and I may be able to help.  I've done a pretty good job of acquiring a lot of fodder through trades and eBay.
