so i poured last night. ive never seen them look like this. ive added pigment before. they look so thick and the purple one moved away from the mold during curing. did i add to much pigment? i added titanium oxide but i've added that before.

i used epoxy which is what i always use so im pretty good at making sure it is mixed properly. im afraid of what they will look like when they are finished curing and i take them out of the molds. [img]20170518_110646 by Dee Neal, on Flickr[/img]

Well I guess they didn't come out as bad as i thought. on the one with the clair top layer, it's cloudy, i used a new mold with this one. I normally use a stainless steel mold but I couldn't find one taller than what I had so i purchased one from ebay. a silicone mold and after pouring the first layer, i noticed the resin seeping into the holding container from the tip so i put some tape on the tip. i suspect that's why it is cloudy because it hadnt come in contact wtih any water. I dont like the shape of this one though. i like a square bottom. I think im going to search for a talller stainless steel one because of the square bottom. im not sure what to do with the rounded tips on them. i left th epin one in to cure a little longer. the shorter all purple one was a last minute pour. i hadnt planned that one so i didn't expect it to be perfect. i had resin left over from the first one and didnt' want to waste it. the bottom layer is a little lighter purple and has that white line going around (which im starting to like) because when i poured it, i ran out and mixed a little more to finish.

any pointers on how to make these two a little more lovable?

and this is the last one. came out better than i thought. inside of this is a smaller orgone pyramid. this didn't come out the way i wanted it to because i wanted the smaller pyramid to have it's own layer but when i put it in, it sank. i thought i allowed the first layer to cure enough but i see now. i should've tried another approach because its weight pushed though. this one has me tingling all over though.

I don't have any experience with epoxy resin personally so I don't have much to add in that regard but I would say just keep them or gift them to someone. The ones I messed up I just keep or give away and folks are happy to accept them =]

Usually when I add pigment I do only a little bit, perhaps a teaspoon if I was going to measure it, into a full measuring cup of resin.

When adding powders I usually add extra catalyst as I've learned not doing so causes a much longer curing time.

I think they are beautiful honestly!

I think you made some great pieces there!

Layering is tricky and the timing has to be right but it looks to me like you are doing just fine Cool

Some kinds of pigments will make a piece "gummy" rather than hard - I would just use less.

thanks all. i think it was the brand of epoxy i used because i used it in a clear layer on another piece and i saw it curing the same way. I wont use that one anymore. i forget the brand because i threw away the box.
