Fast epoxy is just that — fast. You’ve got to have a plan. I tried to sculpt a bit more, but it really feels like a game show with a buzzer. One thing that slowed everything down was keeping the mandrel cold. The epoxy in my hands set up really quickly. If I keep this up, I might set up a peltier cooler to slow down the chemical reaction.
Got an email about an amazing new sculpting epoxy. You can drill it, file it, sand it, and paint it. The catch is that you’re gonna have to drill, file, and sand it because it sets up in 6 minutes including mixing time. It’s a chaotic mush fest with a timer. I’ll give it another try, but it’s really guerilla sculpting.
It must be the holidays because there’s nougat everywhere. This ring was inspired by pistachios, hazelnuts, almonds, milk, eggs, honey, and powdered sugar!
I carved a ring from foam aluminum an then pressed epoxy putty into all the voids.
This is another experiment in the foam aluminum ring series.
