A variety of things I’ve made recently

Here are a few minor tidbits, just some odds and ends. They’re probably not really worth posting, but I’ve committed to the entry now so I suppose I won’t abort. At her request, I took a mold off of one of Nefarious’s “Littlest Pet Shop” characters and cast it in glow in the dark plastic, with a thin layer of blue as an experiment in filling in defects.

This broach was was made using the face from a “Monster High” fashion doll, with the blindfold and other details done in clay. This was an experiment in seeing if glow pigment would show through dyed plastic — to my surprise it does extremely well.

I wanted to try doing an “automatic setting” by pressing a stone into an open mold full of molten pewter. The letters have been filled in with black nail polish, and I engraved the heart by hand. “Veritas lux mean” means “truth is my light” by the way.

And I have sooooo many fingers lying around. This one is another fridge magnet, and it glows orange in the dark, which is kind of neat because it’s an unusual colour. It doesn’t glow for as long or as strongly as the green though. This one is funny because the thin part of the nail doesn’t have enough glow pigment and as a result looks like a gross dirty nail in the dark.

    First off, these are awesome. Especially the glowing one. Secondly, I have been reading your old articles (sadly they never do that kind of thing anymore) and was wondering what you think the sensory potential of two magnetic implants in the forearm have?
