    What do you think of my clear, hallow, RF

    So, what do you think? Yes it is a US quarter inside. I made it from a DP 95. Sorry the pic is fuzzy. That is about the best I can do. I figure that if I am going to do a Boba, I would start at the top.

    It looks rather good .. it might be worth placing it on a darker background for a clearer picture

    It looks like a Clear Acrylic, is that what you used?

    With 2-part clear resin, it really helps to warm up the molds, then mix-up the resin,
    pour it in, then as the resin is setting, keep the mold and resin warm, a cheap trick
    would be to find a cardboard box cut a hole in it for a hairdryer and keep the dryer on "Warm".

    I hope that helps you out.

    That technique has worked with the store-bought clear resins I have used in the past.

    NOTE:
    This needs to be done in a well-ventilated Garage because the resin smell
    can be really strong and you don't want to breathe it in too much!

    Thanks! I will have to try that. What about a heat gun set on low?

    That worked great. I cut the amount of air in the final product by a lot!

    I would stick with a hairdryer, heat guns heat up too fast you run the risk of warping the plastic after it sets, as well as possible damaging the mold.
