Check out the smoothnicity of these babies. Making dragon toenails. This is actually the second batch because the client said they needed to be flatter. The client (being my mum!) is always right. They are going to be cast in clear resin with a wee bit of goldyness and some blue. We'll see how it goes. It's for her quilt she's making which looks pretty awesome with a big ol' dragon on the front. We thought that shiny toenails would look cool and it also means I have something else to experiment with.
This is Apoxie Sculpt. I was wanting to see how smooth I could get the surface and went all the way up to 2000 grit wet n dry sandpaper then a wee polish with my Dremel felty polishing wheel. It got pretty smooth but I wanted jewel-like. So my solution that may or may not make a difference is adding a shiny coat of gloss spray lacquer. Let's see if it works. Now it's silicone time!
