My next goal is to have a storm surge magnetised. I want to swap out the big cannon easy. I stupidly glued the base part of the cannon together with one of the two options(pulse driver cannon). I didn't read ahead. By the time I released the mistake, the glue was too dry to intervene. I plan to make a two part mould of the bit regardless.
Today, I'll experiment with liquid green stuff in cloning the base of a stormsurge's cannon base. Here is my plan
1.ill drill a hole into the base of the weapon to magnetize the orignal later. With will be captured onto the mould making it easier to line up the magnets in step 4 of my plan.
2. I plan to use blue stuff to capture the base of the cannon into a two part mould
3.Then I'll try experimenting with liquid greenstuff paint coating the mould and leaving it out to dry for a few days Last time, I tried to cast with liquid green my results were awful because I was too hasty. This time Ill try something different, I'll try more to be more patient. I want to use liquid green stuff to capture the details better without flash. I will coat the inside or the mold thinly with it to prevent the green stuff from forming a seal that keeps it from drying.
4. Ill also try to place a magnet into position so no drilling will be required later in the base part copy
5. I may related liquid greenstuff if the liquid GS layer is to thin. I will line the cannon option 2 (pulse blaster cannon)and fill with regular green stuff so it should fit snuggly.
I'll start in a about 6 hours or so. Does this experiment sound reasonable enough for a trial run? If you see something critical that can cause issues let me know
.. I'll post my results as well
