    How about spin out the slime on the lathe and then back fill it with a different colour resin then turn it again so it’s spherical?? Put a pigment in between then you’ll get your galaxy feel???

    Try packing it into one of those clear balls and then use some thin fishing line to suspend it with tention from all directions then mold the whole ball in resin, the slime is a hydrophobic material it wont stick to the resin but you can put it in a clear vessel to submerge in resin

    Should have put a bit of resin in first and then the slime and then more resin

    Maybe letting the slime dry out before adding the resin will resolve the issue. It's worth a try.

    The reason the more running slime didnt work out is because you need the putty slime(the purple) the other was water slime to much moisture im the mix

  • Marc Kenner

    I suspect the reason it won't work is because slime stays wet no matter what, so unless you can somehow totally enclose it in resin, it'll never set.

    Just an idea but have u thought of using the ball that didnt adhere to the slime as a base nad possibly add more resin possible in the fire colours and create an optical illusion sort of thing

    Slime chages consistancy as the water leaves it. To make it slimy and less rubbery, just add a bit of water to the container you store it in.

  • Vladdamyre

    the second type of slime worked better because it has less residual liquid in it. If you could of coated the outside of the molds with resin first you could of gotten the other slime to work, but damn physics

  • Allen Rothery

    It doesn't have to be a failure! what about getting the slime out of the ball so it is hollow and then filling the void with colored acrylic? Or...turning an orb, hollowing it out (like a lidded bowl), filling the void with the slime, putting that orb into another mold and pouring more resin on, and around that one, and then turning that into another...something?

    For the one that the slime fell out the bottom, pour some different color resins in there, then when it dries cut a flat bottom on it and clean it up. Then when it’s sitting on a table it’ll look kinda like multi colored mountains in a ball

    What could work is if you freeze the slime before putting it in resin.

    If you wanted it in the middle you could make a smaller mould and do that circle with the slime then do a bigger mould and cover the small circle with resin in the mould and wait for it to dry

    Nick, don’t give up on the slime balls. Put the slime in the clear plastic balls, then encase that in resin.

    Experimenting is half the fun to find out what works and what doesn't. But I'm a little surprised that you were surprised it didn't work. You're the master at resin casting and I'm only a viewer but I watched this just because I had a feeling it wouldn't work. It was entertaining anyway. Cheers mate!

    Ps the purple one looked like silly puddy

    That slime is gonna dry out and shrink on the final piece with the opening. It's gonna end up not looking so cool. The slime is water based and I think that is what is causing the cloudiness. As the resin heats while curing, it is causing the water to evaporate out of the slime and create a cloud of super tiny water vapor bubbles in the curing resin.
    If you made two bowl shaped blanks from resin with cavities in them, then put the slime in between them it would work. Then glue them together with a final pour in another mold, making sure to get resin into the cavity to fill the space, I think you would get what you are looking for.

    Shoulda tried adding more resin to it after it set. Making it a tad bigger. This would seal it.

  • Allen Rothery

    it looked to me as if the slime were more buoyant than the resin. I have an idea. If you used the a turner inside of the pressure pot (if you needed to use it), then would make sense that the resin would have time to form a layer that would keep the slime in the middle-ish. Another way you may be able to use it: pour a round mold (like the Christmas balls) and put a orb inside (like one of those vending machine capsules used for irregular toys) cure it. put it on the lathe and part it about 1/4 of the way down. remove the capsule. put the slime in the cavity. cap it with the parted piece and apply the resin to seal the edges and fill the remaining void. It should be able to cure centered-up and workable. I think.
    Of...use a one-off of the melted wax method. Make a use a mid-melt chocolate shaped like a lollypop to create a removable void in the resin as it sets. Once set, gently heat the blank until the chocolate melts and runs out of the sprue hole. inject the slime in the void and top-off with more resin until that cures. Badda-bing, badda boom.

  • ThePurpleRose OfTexas
    ThePurpleRose OfTexas 3 months ago

    I love to watch all of your crafty try’s and see how they play out. I have a suggestion for the slime. What if you make a 2 semi circles of resin with the middle hollowed out. Like a bowl, (take the ornament and find a smaller circle one to put inside it. Pour the resin and let both halves cure. Making a empty sphere within a sphere, once you put the halves together. Then put a smaller amount of the slime inside the smaller hollowed out sphere. Add more resin to fill the rest of the smaller sphere. Glue the halves together with more resin. By putting in a little resin then the slime then more resin on top. Or making a small straw like hole through the entire piece. That can serve as a funnel to get the resin into the center or core of the piece. Then let the whole thing cure. I think that would actually work. Even if the center never really β€œsets”. The slime would have the thick wall of the outer sphere to contain it. That way you could finish the piece on the lathe without getting to the slime and ruining the piece. So basically a sphere within a sphere. With the smaller inner sphere encapsulating the slime.
    Interested to see if you attempt my idea. Regardless, love watching all you do! You are a very talented artist and creator. I enjoy watching your videos! Thanks for sharing! πŸ’œ from down Texas way!

  • david obrien

    Maybe it would have worked with 2 half’s spheres of resin with a dip in the middle and put the slime in the center and then seal the two half’s

    • ThePurpleRose OfTexas
      ThePurpleRose OfTexas 3 months ago +1

      david obrien Lol. That was exactly my thoughts! A smaller sphere within a bigger sphere. With the slime in the center of the smaller one. Like two bowls together and the slime in the center! Funny.... great minds....

  • kayleighlasorm
    kayleighlasorm 3 months ago

    I don't understand why he thought it would work. I mean isn't it obvious one would sink below the other or that the resin would just sit on top where he poured it? Or does this strategy work with other material? Just wondering :)
