Damn Clay, those dreads are alive with veins! Loving the white veins on the black dread that is a kick ass idea and adds some serious age to the look of the dread!!!! Bummer your mould didn't turn out, but looks like your in a roll with where your going with it bud awesome stuff, looking forward to seeing the other vid.

Ps the dagger is awesome, neat idea

Great work! What foam are you using? I'm also curious what you're using to tint your foam with? Thanks for the video Clay.

after doing all these molds-- I am not sure what is going on-- the one original that I did comes out with flawless dreads-- all of the others seem to want to take the finish off of the foam in different areas. I think maybe I am going to have to clean out the molds completely with acetone, let them dry out for a few days, maybe dust them with some talcum powder and try it again-- I have a feeling it was the release agent I used on the resin dreads to make the molds-- but why didnt it do it on the original??

Anyhow, Im still pushing on here and getting them done, all be it slowly, but I want only a good product.

Here is my questions-- what style should I create the most of---any of these or just the standard black with nothing else?

Need your input so I know what to work on so I can start offering these when I have full sets done.

Personally clay I think you should go for the plain black ones. Think they would be a big mover and would concentrate on them and offer up custom jobs to people as well. Think they look fantastic and as I'm reaching the dread stage in build my backer rod is looking like s@@t..
