16th January 2014: Tests for gems The past couple of days I've been trying ways of recreating Clef's gems. First picture is a bauble with glass paint, second a bauble painted with a spray can, third is hot glue painted with nail varnish and forth is polymorph with glass paint.
I found polymorph works so well! Brush marks didn't help but airbrushing or more coats will help that. I'm also going to use "coolmorph" instead or polymorph as that dries too quickly to mould something like gems. I'm surprised I've not seen tutorials about this method as I think it's a cheaper option to resin *_* or at least cheaper if you can't find moulds for what you are making

13th January 2014: Clef's giant bling I realised recently my plan of using resin and hot glue for all of Clef's gems wouldn't be possible unless I had a lot of spare money which I don't. I've been researching into cheap methods to make giant gem stones and discovered the best methods were either painting a plastic ball or a Christmas bauble. I found Christmas baubles in the right size so I'm hoping to use them. The photo is just s test of finding the best painting method. Here is spray painting result with metallic paint (just used what I had hence not being the right colour). I'm not 100% happy with the result but I'll do some more experimenting. My jeweller's saw arrives this week and I'll be able to rest if I can actually cut these things into an oval. Hopefully everything will be fine as I don't how I'll make them otherwise X__X
