Rainbow Bombs

For a whole bunch of weeks I have been working on this set of Rainbow Buddha Bombs. They are cast from Polyester Resin mixed with coloured glitter. The resin and particularly the catalyst are pretty nasty solvents so the colour from he glitter diffuses right though the cast while still maintaining the essential "glitter" qualities and I'm really happy with the way these turned out.The Polyester resin does shrink as it sets so the casts end up with ripples and puckering in places which need to be sanded and polished out so each one represents several hours of painstaking sanding, filing and polishing. There's blood sweat and tears in these bombshells.
