Small resin project: Totoro

If by now you’re annoyed with my obsession for the cute monster, you’re out of luck. With the temperatures increasing I finally got around to doing some small resin projects again. There are some larger ones that I’ve been wanting to do for a while now, but honestly, I don’t have the spoons. Right now I need instant gratification like a toddler.

I got the moulds a while ago and I must say, they really came out cute. I worked with a combination of epoxy and UV resin. First I cast the bodies in grey and then I painted in the details with UV resin. The former took about 3 min, the latter about 3 hours, because I needed to cure the resin in layers. I finished them into a pair of earrings, 4 pins and 2 keychains. The small ones are a bit more bunny than Totoro, but they’re cute nevertheless.

    They are kyute.

    I feel you on the instant gratification too. I have contacted my doc, got informed that I misunderstood the instructions, adjusted my meds accordingly and I still have no strength and energy to do anything meaningful. There are four knife sets that need just a few hours to get finished and I am not doing it.

    I have managed to wash the windows today though.

    Urgh, thyroid medication needs time, best of luck that your power will return soon. Washing the windows is on my list for tomorrow. I still have the Christmas paintings on them (thank goodness I go for more generic wintery motives)
