I have been learning mold making and casting and find it fascinating...
I had ordered all my supplies from a place called "Smooth On" in Pennsylvania...
of course...that entails waiting and shipping charges...

I guess because of the supplies I have ordered...I got an e-mail announcing a local seminar on mold making and casting....
right here in Countryside...
and
it turns out...
that place sells the Smooth Cast products....

Anyway...

the name of the place is Reynolds Advanced Materials...
their website is here:

http://www.reynoldsam.com/?utm_campaign=website&utm_source=sendgrid.com&utm_medium=email

and....
they are conducting a seminar in October...
and also one in December


http://www.reynoldsam.com/Reynolds-Advanced-Materials-Seminars/c4/p18/Seminars-%7C-Chicago,-IL/pages.html



If this is something that you would like to learn/do
I urge you to check it out...
at the very least...both Reynolds and Smooth On have awesome on-line videos for you to learn things also..


I am thinking about taking a day off work to go to either one....Oct or Dec


Some of the stuff I have been diddlying around with...




















It is a fascinating hobby...
and...
opens up a whole new world of possibilities for both costuming...and probably some other practical applications...

I just might sign up for the OCT 1st one.

sounds like my bid at work is getting delayed... I dont think it will be ready by then so I should still be off mondays.

I have no clue what is going to happen with the next bid.. I doubt I'll get sun/mon again

I figured it would be...
that is less than two weeks away...
and..
the timing was not good for me for Oct. anyway....

so..
in the next couple days, I am going to register for the Dec seminar...

I do understand that with your job...you probably can't plan that far in advance...
I will try to "learn for all"...

I talked to the guy again to see if they had any cancellations... nothing yet but he did say this

We usually run the seminar every 3-4 months so hopefully if you can’t make October or December, there will be another one around March that you might be able to attend.



so If they can squeeze me in the OCT one and I cant make the Dec one, I might try for next year.

molding and casting can become addictive...

I am working right now (when I have time...which ain't much)
of re-sculping my snowspeeder pilot wrist comm (the other was still too large)
and
making a "sculpt" of a new Hoth wrist comm that is smaller than the one I have...

I am going to re-work my Hoth Trench Trooper gloves a bit cuz the gauntlet is too small...

Once I get the new sculpts done...
I can make a mold...
and cast....

One thing I have kinda found out is that the molding material (the Oomoo especially) does not have a long "shelf life"....
the Rebound seemed better...so for future needs...I think I will stick with the Rebound.

I sent an e-mail this morning noting that I would like to try to get into the October one as well...
though I don't expect that to be a possibility...

so...

I said if October was out...then I was signing on for the Dec. 3rd seminar....and put in a vacation day request.

I went to Reynolds Advanced Materials yesterday to pick up a few things I could afford...
and..
they said that they filled up the October seminar pretty quickly and the lady at the store said they turned away a large number of people.

The place is pretty small...so I can easily see that they don't have a lot of room for large numbers of students.....

I will be calling them with my credit card to reserve the December 3rd seminar as the amount of different products that seemingly do the same thing is mind numbing..
I am sure that each product has unique applications....
so...
I guess for me..
the point of the seminar would be to choose products that would be best for a variety of applications...

I am only familiar with a small handfull of the various products...and maybe I am using the wrong product for the job...

that is what I need to find out..

Wink
