I will start off to day with my samples, this first one is just white glitter and epoxy. It didn’t work out as well as I would have liked. You can see that the coloring is not even. I am pretty sure I mixed it well so I don’t know what caused this, but it’s not something I want in the final project.
In the next sample I painted the bottom and sides of my void first, let the paint dry and then filled it with a glitter and epoxy mix. I like the way this one looks and will most likely use it for the eye and teeth of the project.
Finally we come to the good stuff. I took the pencil shavings and glitter and mixed it and filled the rest of the face in. I think I used a little more pencil lead the I needed but it cure up just fine and I like the way it looks. I think it is going to look great once I sand down the grits, getting a finer surface.
Here it is dry, cured, and ready to sand
In this next picture you can see how it is sanding up just fine. No gumming or tears and I cannot make an indention in the new epoxy.
Here it is sanded flat
and with a little water
My next steps will be to use the carbon paper to draw the entire face back on and then cut out the white of the eye and the teeth. Then it will be time to figure out what to do with it. Maybe a box. We shall see.
Thanks for taking a look,
