I know this hasn't been updated that often, but I've been making quick posts on facebook, so people know what's going on.
I've been fixing the silicone molds because of bad vent engineering. I was learning while testing, so I had made some mistakes.
But I'm very happy, instead of frustrated every time I got a bad cast, because I've checked in some very important points of production.
Because I know the shipping is very expensive, I've been trying to make them even lighter, each one had at least 100gr, wich is a lot for a toy. And It also had a porcelain look that I didn't like that much, and the colors were very pastel for my taste. Kriture is a reflect of my passion for surrealism, but I don't want them to look so dreamy I wanted them more vibrant, like the polymer clay colors.
The resin was too hard to cut to fix imperfections, and I had contact with toxic materials at least 30m for every cast It was dangerous and the smell was in the whole house. There is a person with cancer living with me and a close friend with my age passed out recently due to an heart attack. This made me really think about what I was doing, and trying to find a new way to do it.
I've find an answer to all this points, and the result will be posted soon, since I need to make a whole new photoshoot of the figures to launch them on the website that will be opening soon too.
The weight of each figure has reduced at least 20%, the colors will be more vibrant. I actually can fix imperfections, and now I only spend about 5 minutes in contact with toxic materials per cast.
I've also noticed this new resin must have some "elastic" proprieties because when the figure fall, it does not break, it jumps!
I've already painted some of them and I've been very proud when I look at them ^^
So for now, I will be fixing all the bad moulds and think about a way of making a good packaging for them. At the same time I've been working in the website, so I'm trying my best to make a good use of my "spare" time wich I dont have, but I make it happen somehow.
