Did some prototype painting today. Got the base colors slapped on, though I’m unsure if I want to use these exact colors for the first release. Probably going to do a bit of clean up and detailing tomorrow because they’re super rough right now. #stolas #demonology #goetia #resintoy #resintoys #designertoys #designertoy #customtoy #customtoys #acrylicpaint #acrylics #painting #sculpting

Nothing like finding a lost pup and returning her home on #nationaldogday . Her name was Gigi and I spotted her sitting on the steps in front of my neighbor’s house… And they don’t have a dog. Smart little thing basically was saying “Okay, I had enough, someone take me home.” Her owner was so relieved that she was safe. #pekingese #lostdogfound #cutedog #smalldog #gooddeed

Three straight hours of priming and sanding… The damn primer wasn’t “ready for wet sanding in 10 min!” like the can said, so the primer was soft and slipping while I sanded. I probably have to reprime and sand it AGAIN… This is such a pain in the ass. #stolas #sanding #wetsanding #goetia #demonology #resintoy #resintoys #designertoy #designertoys #customtoy #customtoys #resincasting #fml

Safety first, kiddos! Got myself a respirator last week and absolutely loving it. No spray primer fumes, which means no headaches and irritated sinuses. I’m prepping the original Stolas sculpt for wet sanding, and then he’ll be remolded early September. The two prototype pulls will be wet sanded and painted up this week, hopefully… And then after Stolas is successfully remolded, production time will begin, and I -will- be holding a giveaway for the first colorway release! ;D #3mrespirator #respirator #resintoy #resintoys #resincasting #priming #rustoleumprimer #safetyfirst #stolas

Didn’t do too much work this morning since I’m way too sleepy to bother with sanding and dremelling and priming right now… But here’s the unfinished prototype roughly put together. I also repaired the original sculpt that broke during molding. Got some more silicone on the way so hopefully I can remold it soon. I swear, when this is all over I’m celebrating… With a toy purchase, hahaha! #stolas #demonology #designertoy #designertoys #customtoy #customtoys #resintoy #resintoys #goetia #sculpting

So… I learned a few things tonight. First of all, this plumbing epoxy putty smells like a skunk’s asscrack. Secondly, repairing these resin casts is more trouble than it’s worth. I think I’m just going to recast as a two-part mold with Oomoo, because a one-part with Mold Max just has too many bubbles without a pressure chamber. I’m still going to finish these two that I have so I can practice some paint apps, but UGH. This project just consists of hurdles after hurdles. #stolas #demonology #goetia #resintoy #resintoys #designertoy #designertoys #customtoy #customtoys #pcfixyourthings

No, I’m not dead or missing. I’ve just been in Delaware eating tons of fried chicken, suffering the intestinal consequences, and being a bug magnet. (I got bitten by something near the thumb of my palm, my inner elbow, and on my ass. Hooray!) I’ll be back in CT on Monday and putting my insomnia to good use again working on Stolas. #moth #mothsrslygtfo #delaware #vacation #chickfilaaddict

Zagoran finds this portion of New Jersey boring, mostly because there are no buildings that he can fantasize about smashing. Going to be visiting Delaware for a week, hoping I’ll have some new toys waiting for me when I get back! 😁 #zagoran #gargamel #ggml #vinyltoy #vinyltoys #designertoy #designertoys #sofubi #sofvi #newjersey #nj #delaware #kaiju
