Thanks for the kind words.

Yep - sounds like similar resin - mine was still tacky after 24 hours. Around 15 hours to demold was the best I ever achieved. Temperature plays a big role - the warmer the faster does the stuff cure. But also the more fumes you get. Took me nearly until the last cast to figure out a good way to clean up the fingers afterwards as the stuff did stick like hell - nail polish remover.
I look forward to see your pictures. Just spend three hours painting, gluing and casting. So nice to work with plaster again - but it just doesn't look the same.

Thanks for the advertisement - did slip in a note myself ... Just worked on some small bits to get them finished - a grand stair case and minor bits. Hope to add them on the weekend to ensure they end at the same time. Well - and now the work on the sewer system has started in earnest. With some luck I will have some pictures by next week.

Nail Polish remover you say, will have to bagsiees some Acetone from work.... :)

Yes heat works very well, one of the things i tend to do is if i will be cooking i put the bits of resin on some foil on top of the stove, it helps to cure it faster.

I have a few more, but they have been taken to where we game.

Looks great - thanks for sharing. I was contemplating to use the ghotic stones but I don't have molds of them yet. I was having mold 50 on my list until yesterday - but replaced it last minute with a pyramid mold for my son. Will be his first mold. He wanted his own stones and wasn't please after I let him build up some bits with castings from 2 days that he wasn't allowed to glue them together.
Now I have second thoughs if I should have taken the mold 50 as well. Okay - there is only as much as you can buy. Got both cavern molds, the graveyard one and the roof one which Crioux used for the MBS roof.

I will stay with the blue underlay - but maybe in a few month when I revisit ice I will have to decide which kind of stones to take.

The blue does look nice, but i will most likely stick with the Foamcore, it does such a good job of matching height with the DF.

Yeah this got me recasting again last night, i poured a 50 and the floor.

I experimented with the Cavern floor but i didn't like the look that came out for use with Ice. And since i am using a lot of the "1/2 floor" pieces, and even some of the bigger and smaller ones for my lava tiles i decided to to make a better deliniation between the too terrein types. So they have a different look to them, I think actually Mold 95 Egyptian Basic Block might be one of the best for ice becuase of all of those cracks along it, and the same with Egyptian Floor Tile Mold #290 for much the same reason. But i don't have, or have access to either of those molds so eh going with what i have.

Ah...that's your stuff I've seen on e-bay. Nice. I like your shots here better as they show more detail.
Good job.
