Re: Just a sneek peak of what I might offer soon.... UPATED pics- NEED YOUR OPINION!!


no flash? so the colors shown here are pretty accurate to what you're seing (in your kitchen apparently!)? well I think I'm going to vote for the second buckle [sign in to see URL], if you're only going to make a few of these, you could ask to each «customer» wich color they prefer, charge them the price of the paint (wich I guess you would do anyways) therefore solving this dilemma!!

Re: Just a sneek peak of what I might offer soon.... UPATED pics- NEED YOUR OPINION!!


I just keep topping myself. I hate to toot my own horn.. but man, i took a step back after I was done for the night and let out a WHOOOHOOO.

#1, i think I found the color...
#2, I have a lot of parts ready for final block out and primer.

Next step is to work the big links a bit more.. and then pin it all together. I think i want to work with the other links too as I based the mid section size off of guanos belt and I think its too thick. The belt is about 1" longer than my guano belt.. but i did make the rear links the way i think they are supposed to be.. then again, my guano belt has 8 links instead of 7... so really, I need to shorten it up a bit.. we will see what route i take...

then i have to order another batch of silicone from smooth on. I wonder if the trial size will run all these parts?? I guess ill have to do a little math.. and figuring..

Then, i have to make my decision on the magnets.

On to the color. i messed around a lot with primer and not primer.. forgot i never did this color with grey primer. The ring is done with out primer on white resin. It looks just like the guano belts gold... The buckle is done with grey primer.. and what I feel is the winner. The other buckle is really REALLY dark. Im going to do one more test tomorrow with the darker color, with no primer. We will see what it looks like. I did a link with no primer and it looks good.. but ill have to really "thin skin" it...

Didnt get to do much work tonight. Wife was working so I was watching my lil girl... BUT, what I did do, i feel was ground breaking.

Tonight, i tried the color everyone loves in pics, but i say is way too dark, without grey primer as a base. i think we have a winner.

can you tell which one is the finished master? kind of a giveaway... asi finally sunk some hardware in it... lol

What kind of clay have you been using to sculpt in? I'd love to see some photos of the beginning of this endeavour. Those are always the fun part to look at.

Correct. It is a few ticks lighter than the middle.. but has the same hues... rather than the one on the left side which is a good color.. but has a copper-ish hue to it...

The finish in the far left is spectacular.. it look like metal.... im going to work on the far right hopefully tonight and see if a little satin clear makes the finish pop like the other...

Search my thread on different paints I used and posted colors of.

I ended up using a Folk Art acrylic craft paint thinned out with water, and sprayed it through my airbrush to get my final color....

I forgot to take pics.. but i now have pinned links setting up in silicon for tomorrow.

I made one of each link with pins and a center link... then back filled them with clay leaving just a slight indentation. This will leave me marks in every link to drill so that all are the same...

Links are very cool. They move well and will actually fold back on them selfs.

I hope to have something to show tomorrow.

Keith
