COUNTDOWN! FIVE Days to Maker Faire

This was a productive day.

For me, it started with fiberglass:
Laying Up Shield Mold

For my friend Sean, it started with masking helmets for detail painting:

For Ian and Danielle, it was mixing and pouring silicone:

Madison started her day with prepping Grey Knight shoulders for detail paint:

Freddy locked himself in a room with the belt sander and made a bunch of dust:

And Sierra got to sculpting the Grey Knight hand:

Eventually, I got to testing out the head and neck parts of the Mousers:

Madison sprayed some gold paint and unmasked the shoulder parts:
