Results!

Here they are! The cast products.

Firstly I am a little disappointed that I have not yet been able to buff the initial test cast to a clear glass like finish. It just won’t buff up even though it is so smooth now and I have tried various polishing compounds including a brasso equivalent (or maybe not) and a metal polish for chrome.

Orange tinge is due to the cardboard box leaking some colour

I sanded the piece with 600, 800 then 1200 water paper and subsequently started to polish it, unfortunately it is not reacting the way I had hoped. I even attached a polishing wheel to my drill press but even that only left the resin dull. I know it is crystal clear as before I sanded the top it was like water.
