Yeah so it was these steps:
– Mold of original figures
– make hydrospan castings from those molds
– soak the hydrospan castings to enlarge
– make new mold of enlarged hydrospan figure (standing the wobbly clear wet figure is hard because it’s basically like jello)
– Make a resin hard copy from that new mold.
What I find fascinating is that he has to keep those hydrospan casts, made in 2015, soaked 24/7 so they stay enlarged.
Moving on, here’s some shots of the arms with the peg holes drilled and the casting that was created. The holes around the figure are locking points for the halves so they stay lined up properly, and the sticks are pour and air vents for the resin. I really get a kick out of the Legos being used!
And here’s an update on other future figures:
I’ve still got an enlarged body of one other sculpt and the standard soldier as well but it had a big bubble in the face so I’ll have to see if I can fill that in and make a mold of it as well on this way. Unfortunately the place that made that [hydrospan enlarged castings] doesn’t have much anymore and what I had went bad, so enlarging other castings isn’t for sure yet.
Lastly, there’s going to be a sale soon with various themes. Make sure to drop by this Saturday! Check out the vampire, Joker and Dr. Doom versions below!
