    Custom Superman… again

    I’ve made 10-15 of these over the years, but made the mistake of selling the one from my collection several years ago. Glad to have another one on the shelf.

    Love the style you use. That is your own body design, right? Did you stick with the same resin since you did your first versions?

    ^ Thanks. yes, it’s my muscle body design. I’ve used Smooth-On resin for the past 15 years with Aluminite dye to get the skin tone. The only paint is for the hair and eyes. I’ve gone through 2-3 sets of molds.

    It is a great design. I always envisioned modern Mego in this vein, but I understand it would look out of place next to the standard. Smooth-On makes some great product. I occasionally buy something else out of curiosity but mostly stick within their various lines. Have you checked out Robert Tolone on Youtube? He has some great videos on moldmaking. https://www.youtube.com/c/roberttolone
    Adjusting some of my processes to match his has saved me a lot of time for cleaning up flash. I would love to have a pressure pot setup like he has instead of trying to get the nuts down on my paint-pot before the resin gels.

    I have not seen his videos. I try to degas my mold material under a vacuum before pouring. I have a pressure pot for casting, too. It really makes for a cleaner end result.
