    Wow. That is really, really good. Totally looks like a pistol...even has a small sight on the end.

    I have not tried casting in colors yet I'm still learning this is only my second cast part. I figured I would just spray paint them silver


    Thanks for the compliments

    yo bro about color casting
    u can either spray the mold , the resin ,once poured will adhere to the paint and u'll receive a color cast , but take in mind the the flash or any sanding will reveal the original color of the cast.
    Or u can go to your local home depot etc ,and buy some pigment paint for concrete or any other powdered pigment, they work amazing with anything .
    just mix them well

    the hand gun looks awesome bro.

    That looks incredible - and only your second casting? I'm seriously impressed, with both the cast and the original design.
    Regarding colours, while I've only got limited experience of casting myself, I've actually found, at least while using resin, that even a little acrylic paint can work well.

    I would love to see a couple pics of your original piece. I have been using styrene a tone lately and would love to see other peoples use of it.
