this is the partially finished products with a lot of imperfections / flashing right out of the molds.
Personally I prefer the shorter type, unless possibly going the elder pred look. Shorter seems like it would make more sense for an active hunter, whereas the longer would look better for a less active elder. Just my $.02!
I could have sculpted in clay or better, wax for this, let it sit cool then mold but this was readily available. if doing it again I think I'd go microcrystaline wax or a really hard wax based clay and carve them polish before molding.That's good thinking! Was about to ask if you coated some base with latex or what medium you utilized.
cool and thanks for the reply. my finished ones will also be in dental acrylic. in thicknesses over 1/4" it's pretty tough stuff.
