    i have an idea that has been rooling around for the clear part in the range finder. I was toying with the idea of using hot glue from a glue gun? and casting in is a plastercean mold.

    Has anyone in there right mind tried this? i just can justfy 60.00 in resin materials...

    hahahha

    Hi Jackson,

    Even if the clear resin is very affordable, you will still need to invest on a pressure pot ($99) for a bubble free cast. I don't have a pressure pot but my clear resin turned out okay but with quite a few bubbles but after spraying it with 4-5 coats of clear dull coat, it's not as noticeable and it turned out like frosted glass. I'm afraid that with the hot glue method, you will get quite a bit bubbles in it as well but I don't know what dull coating will do to the glue.


    BTW,

    Did you receive your packet yet?

    Hope this helps!

    I don't know that hot glue would dry clear enough...it would be worth a few sticks to try it though....
