It starts as little white pellets, submerge in hot water until it turns into a clear putty. It then becomes moldable, it cools fairly quickly, maybe 10 or 15 minutes and rehardens and goes back to being white. I attempted to make a press casting of the Sasquatch and one of the Han Solo cubes. #polymorphplastic–IiIpAR3I/?igshid=7hefjviadb5i

Ok, these harden pretty quickly. They go back to white once they cool. They hold detail fairly well. Made a pressing of the Sasquatch, I’ll see f I can use that as a mold, too. Free-handed a little stickman too who cooled very rapidly. I may need to dip it back into warm water to resoften. I am glad that this stuff is reusable.

Testing out polymorph pellets for low temperature casting. Since we are locked up, I am using the nerdy ice tray starring Han Solo. If this stuff works, and air is clear outside, I will make my own molds to try next, and then move on to Sasquatch / Jackalope casts.
If that works, moving on to epoxy resin.

Quarantine day 32

We are being careful to not let tempers flare up too much, despite some of the struggles involved with being in a continued lockdown.

Groceries continue to come in a timely way, though certain scarcities make for the occasional oddball substitution in recipes.

We have begun to see the back of the freezer, and I feel very fortunate that a couple of quorn roasts had been pretty much stored in Carbonite in the far rear of the unit. Those, mixed with the odd cabbage, bell pepper and onion and veggie broth makes for a pretty tasty dinner.

With the arrival of the veggie crate, we had some amazing omelette/frittata for breakfast, too. The peppers /onions shone through really well, and fresh eggs can be delightful. I may boil some later to devil, if the mood strikes.

Egghead agrees with the tasty frittata review.

Pyewacket continues to eat well, and is taking his subdermal liquids like a champ. He has become quite a little beggar around his mama, who indulges his behavior a little bit more than me, but I do give him a tiny dollop of cream cheese or whipped cream now and again as a little reward for being such a sweetheart.

Easter went well, despite our lack of faith and chocolate. We sat on the porch and hung out for a brief time before weather got rainy enough to drive us indoors.

Current tv is the Greg Davies Taskmaster series, along with just some light filler here and there. Watched tiger king, and it was ok, but not the great shakes the internet makes it out to be.
