First Cast = Epic Fail :(

Saturday, Dec 3, 2011

The finished two part mold:

The first cast!

Epic fail! :)
There wasn't enough pressure for the resin to push out the air and flow through the mold.

It all back-flowed out of the top instead, leaving me with a mess of plastic resin :(

At least the resin is easy to clean up once it hardens; you just need to pry it off.

Next time I'm going to enlarge the sprue area to allow for better flow and use a syringe to inject the resin.
