    Here's a sneak preview. It's a rough cast with many blemishes, but I used it just to see how it'd polish. Then I scuffed it up a bit to see how it stood up to scratching. It was a little soft, so I'll need to increase the catalyst a bit next time. The cold-cast is going to take a bit more work and a lot more attention than gel-coat.

    The first pic is with flash. Tomorrow I'll take an outside pic in the sun.

    Also, pics of something I made for fun. It's a Hyper-firm missile made of "nerf" foam like material. It can be bent and then returns to its original shape. My son and I were throwing it around earlier today in the house and when it hit a window, it bounced right off.

    I was thinking a projectile chore reminder for my son! I'd like to cast jet pack rockets with some of this stuff and then rig them to shoot with compressed air.

    Cold-cast pic in clouded sunlight. Best I'll be able to do today.
    This morning I went out and bought a small portable heater. And today I'll build a "hot box" for it that'll fit the gauntlet shell molds so I can speed up the cold cast's curing process.

    Thanks

    Absolutely beautiful my friend, but I still think that you're pure evil.

    Be cool if you could launch the nerf rocket from the gauntlet :P

    Kidding, but that would still be rather funny to see hehe.

    You warmer climate guys have it rough. Great idea though Cruz. I can get my best castings done at this time of the year even if it's zero out thanks to my coal stove being fired up for the next 3 months. I've got something similar catching the heat off the side of my stove that I'm putting to use in heat curing my goods.

    Yeah, we're waking up to mid-30s degree weather around here, but it's 50-60s during the day...so not exactly resin curing weather!

    Yup it's pretty cold out here. I drove from Bakersfield to Madera and almost the entire way it was super foggy, couldn't see squat.

    Do we have a price on these yet? If we are pretty sure that a set of CC's on going to be the guesstimate price, Sweet!
