Hey guys, I have been slowly learning sculpting, molding and casting so I wanted to show my first figure here.

 

His name is Roast Ghost. He's a possessed cup of coffee. I still have a long way to go in learning the process but all things considered he could have turned out worse.

I think Be9ine needs some of these for his coffee business. You should shoot him a pic!

 

 

Well done btw, I think they are neat.

Cool, what's the scale? Could they be held by an action figure and double as an accessory? Double your audience that way :)

Looks pretty cool, you should add some coffee scented oil to them when you cast them!

Like coffee? I roast for a living! Check it out at caffepacori.com
Ask me about trading coffee for your spare M.U.S.C.L.E.S.! I'll take most, regardless of condition :D

Oh man!

 

Thank you all so much for the kind words! I was pretty nervous about sharing but this is super encouraging!

The only hand he would fit in is more of a claw.....

 

And Nilla, i'll add coffee scent to it if you add pizza scent to your fig!

Fantastic idea! Very original!

If you want a tip for quickly removing the flash, use a dremel tool with a plastic bristle wheel on the lowest setting. I used to use a scalpel, but I found I would sometimes dig into the character instead of just removing the excess flash.

I'm still having some trouble with the flash. These are made of rubber, will that technique still work?

I use a combo of fresh Xacto blade and cuticle trimmers nipper I guess it's called. If there's a quicker technique I would love to hear it :)

Im guessing you are using a two piece mold for this, correct? perhaps increasing the pressure holding the two halves together might make a better seal. better seal, less leakage.

Hey, I am finally putting these dudes out tomorrow! Here is a picture of them in the package!

 

They will be $6 + Shipping. I'm releasing them alongside another series of figures I produced called 'The Abnormals' which I have another thread about!
