Here is a gallery of the ones that not turn out exactly a expected.

What I wanted.


What I got.


Please add yours.

Here's mine. I didn't stay ahead of the heat build up, resulting in deep cracks all around the piece, near the bottom edge. So deep that I was able to break off the bottom edge quite easily. I'll post pictures after I've fixed it.

Not a good picture. Large crack from too much catalyst on hot day. Good enough for electric meter though.

Over-poured on tiny molds. No amount of sanding will make the bottoms smooth. I guess I'll recast them in larger pieces sometime.

Bench grinder is your best friend for over-pours. 👍

First attempt at making an organite loaf. Unfortunately the cracks showed up. Thank goodness for this topic; so I figured I share.[img][/img]

Here's the cracked side of the loaf. It was pretty hot at this time of pouring...

Here's another loaf just a bit smaller...

...And the cracked side

This piece stays in the backpack. Cool

To everyone in this forum, thank you for sharing.

Much love y'all

OK, so I'm pouring on Sunday and my wife spies this broken cone on the shelf and says, "You need to repair it. It's tired of sitting there." So I did. Here are the pictures in chronological order.

First step is to cut grooves through the cracks with my Dremel tool and brush/blow all the resin dust out of those grooves. After flipping the piece upside down, placing tape around the edge, pouring fill-in resin, and it's cured, I start with the bench grinder first (not shown) to remove the high spots, then the 6" random orbital sander (ROS) for initial smoothing. Absolutely love this tool! Then hand sanding with 400, 800, 2000 grit wet sand paper to remove the swirl marks from the ROS. Final step is to polish and buff with an attachment to my cordless drill. Final picture shows that it looks like new. You'd never know it was ever cracked. This cone is so beautiful. I love it!

Top of a fairly large pyramid. This is back lit. Lit from the front there is just a cloud in there. Guess I shouldn't have tried to move it after the resin started to set. I suppose I could cut the top off and recast the whole thing, but I don't think I have the proper tool for that.
