Looking good man. I can see the Jelly Babies already.

Base was sanded. The four sides are glued together and puttied along with the base. I need to do a little more puttying before I glue the top to it. Once it's together I'll create the molds to make a copy for my goddaughter before I proceed.

I have the decals and the paint ready. I should get a little bit of time this weekend to work on it.

Dang it! The Tardis is ready in its clay and plastic bed to start the molding process and my two-part did not survive the move. Grr. Now I have to wait until my LHS restocks the silicone

I just got word that my LHS has silicone back in stock. I'll pick it up on Friday and make the molds this weekend. Once they're ready I can start casting.

I continue with my dastardly plan of continuing to tease y'all...

But this time in a good way. Managed to swing by and pick up the materials today, so the mold process begins

I can't wait to see the transformation.
