But wait a minute, they ain't in resin yet
I'm pleased with how they're going but I have a couple of decisions to make. While I like the look of the detail pieces, I'm not sure if they're really smooth enough to cast in place. As it cut, the laser left a grooved surface on these pieces that I don't really like. I mean it will work fine for me but would the average customer like them?
I don't know where to turn to have a small run of these photo-etched. While casting these body and case pieces should be easy to do ( I've cast a few things before) I've never had to go "out-of-pocket" to get something etched in batches before. If anyone knows someone who could point me in the right direction on that, I'm all ears!!!
Anyway, enough ranting, and I don't want to get discouraged. I'm gonna build these two, finish the laser artwork for the other instruments (including a drum kit, hopefully! )
Thanks again for the interest and comments and I'll post more as these progress
