Tim from Grey Matter....

Cutting moulds is always fun. Basically I work on the fact that I could only get one chance to get it right, depending on the sculpting medium.
Sometimes the master sculpt will break when cutting it out of the silicone, if that happens I can't afford to do any bad cuts. If I break the master and have a useless mould then all would be very embarrassing.
I also don't like to scar the master with a scalpel blade, although sometimes it happens.[/quote]

Another Charity Thingy update...

Tim at Grey Matter Figures now has the 3 'greens' for mastering in resin.....

From L-R Andrew's Sabrina, Seb's Kelly and Kev's Jill

In this photo, the masters have been set up for moulding in silicone.
Since then they have been vacuumed in silicon rubber.
Due to the cool weather they will not be able to be "cut" until tomorrow, a day later than normal.

Next process will be Mark and Rich casting a few resins for painting.
After that the transitional resins, will involve a lot of swearing as it is a bitch to do and can only do one cast a day

Frothers' Charity thingy 2010

Over the summer on Frothers we've been running a Charity drive. All those that have made donations will be getting a set. Kelly was sculpted by Seb Archer of Guild of Harmony, Sabrina by Andrew Rae of Statuesque and Jill by Kev White of Hasslefree. Limited to only 100 sets these have now all been taken but if you'd like to still give a bit (and get a warm, fuzzy feeling) yu can do so here:

and if there are any spare sets they'll be allocated on a first come, first served basis to those on this list.

Photos of all 3 greens can be seen here:

Photoshoppery Part 10

10. Repeat adding images as you want. Once you're happy go to 'Layer' and select 'Flatten' and save the image and you're done :)

Hope that makes sense!

Photoshoppery Part 9

9. Repeat the Rotate, Select, Invert, Feather & Drag for the second image.

When you're ready to re-size go to 'Edit', then 'Transform' but finally select 'Again'; this will reduce the new additition to the same size as the first one.
