Using a plastic mold, sometimes my pyramids have holes in the sides, especially where I forgot to run my stick around the side to check for bubbles. I fill in the holes and it comes out somewhat bumpy. When I recast the second layer doesn't stick completely. I thought it might be residue from too much silicone spray so I wash them with detergent and then wipe them down with acetone. Still doesn't work. This is my last one. There is an area on the left side that looks slightly cloudy because the 2nd layer didn't stick. It was originally made 4-7 days ago and it is hot here, over 100, so things harden fast. Sometimes the 2nd layer peels off, but this one might be thicker.

Sounds like you did everything right as far as making sure there was no residue on your pyramid after the first cast.
Sometimes the second layer sticks to the mold instead of the piece when I recast, too. I've found that leaving the second casting in the mold for at least 24 hours helps.

Asking you a non-related question, all those little round dots of metal in there, what are they called?

They are the holes left from punching out scales for chain maille. They make rather dense orgonite.

What do you mean by 'dense'? Do you make those holes yourself?

Dorothy, would love to see pix of some of your chain maille.

IMO the steel dots combine the strong grounding of iron/ steel with the sacred geometry of the first form- the circle/ sphere/ cosmic egg, and the vibration of the color. I think they're especially effective in the round TB molds.

Sweet Very Happy

Have you considered using martini glasses (cones), the feminine version of the pyramid?

I have some on my facebook page. Ring Weaver Chains.

I have Steel, Aluminum, copper and brass dots. I have a little Titanium which I haven't tried yet. My latest pieces have a steel/aluminum laminate. An experiment by Jon at The Ring Lord evidently which didn't turn out to be economically feasible. But they are kind of neat because they do double duty.

I have done a couple of "blue boobs". The first one sold. They seem to have a very warm and strongly protective feel. I found a Martini glass at Goodwill but haven't had a chance to use it yet. Now I am out of resin and feel I ought to get some Bondo and get ready for some gifting when it gets a bit less hot.

I got them from a chain maille manufacturer. I liked the tiny ones the best but there weren't many of them available.

They tend to stack up since they are all flat, unlike the odd shaped shavings, and pack in tighter. But I think the resin does run in between them.
