    Thanks everyone, for all your support on the Facebook page. Start lighting it up wih comments and questions. Ben a. Has been killing it in the studio space. We have a roof and walls now. Amazing. Of course, just as the weather is getting warmer, but we will still need a solid space for rain and wind protection while we're fashioning the fortress of awesome.

    Hey guys! First of all thanks for all the likes on our facebook page, On Deadly Ground! I know I was super stoked to see all our process pics organized and posted for easy viewing, glad you guys are enjoying it too. We don't have any new photos to share yet, but our studio space is pretty much ready to go. It just needs a little buttoning up. Casting with resin is smelly business, so we want to make sure our space is airtight. I've been sealing it all off with spray foam, which is fitting, as the walls are also made of a rigid foam board insulation. It's a good thing that PBR is our only vice and neither of us smoke, 'cause if that place caught a spark it would go up like napalm, haha. Anyway it will be great to have a permanent space to do all our casting from, it will make things much easier and quicker once we get rolling. Ironically enough, now that we have a fully insulated studio to work out of, it's finally beginning to warm up here in Maine. But with a sealed, interior, lighted space, we will really be able to cast around the clock. Keep checking our facebook page, we will try to keep this thread afloat too, but if it begins to languish it might be because the updates are happening on facebook. Thanks again for your unwavering patience guys, we have big things in store for you in 2012!

    -Ben A.

    i suspect the "updates" many of us are LOOKING for is: "we've started casting!!!" (it WAS a month ago when you posted "time to start casting!", and it seems like the studio space has been ready, and also as you said, outside temps have been good)... so i think we'd just like to know specifically and exactly where things stand in actually beginning to crank some final product out.

    we're all very excited to hear how the final casting process goes, and any mishaps encountered, timing involved, how good the quality turns out... projected timing of making more and more, etc. hopefully you understand i'm not trying to seem pushy or anything... just truly anxiously wondering what the hold-ups particularly might be at this point, and eagerly awaiting word that the production process has actually gotten underway. it's exciting! keep it going that way!

    We have 20 lbs. of fumed silica coming to us in the mail (an additive for the resin), which is the only thing we are waiting on currently. The studio is finished and ready to go (except for installing a vent fan, but we can wait a little bit on that, i.e. cast with the door open). The silica should be here on Tuesday, so depending on our schedules coinciding, Ben and I might be casting next week. I will snap a few pictures of the mold inside the finished space, so that you have a visual of the set up.

    You have to understand that we are also very anxious for this, it has been a lot of work, and we are eagerly anticipating the reactions to the finished product. With that said, we will be casting all summer, so get ready! It will be a very exciting time for us all, guaranteed!

    got any ventilation in that shack? or are the fumes part of the master plan cause it's cheaper than drinking beer.

    We will do our best. With casting our number one priority, I doubt we will be able to provide that kind of play-by-play, but keep an eye out for the pictures.
