Stardancer, thank you ... " blush " ... but this build ain't perfect, there are things i could do better.

Any how, today ... sanding time, few days ago i brushed resin/epoxy on the bucket + black ink.

For those who want to use resin/epoxy, mix first the ink + resin and add after the mix the hardener, and if you can get you hands on it, ask for slow hardener, it's easy'r to work with.

Sanded in three steps first with 100 - 120 - 330 ...
This is the result:




Next step will be a primer, and sanding.

As i written before, it ain't perfect, it's a learning proces, did things i never did, worked with tools i didn't know how to use, ... i know 3D printers will slowly take over.

... this is the primer is used, i bought it at KNS (Roeselare, Belgium), i was advised by the owner of the shop to use this, and to be honest ... after testing/using i love/like this product.








... the build ain't perfect, sorry for that.
