TDipIt #16: Resin vs. Aluminum: My Horrible Gift to Carl Jacobson!
Published on Apr 28, 2017
I reached out to Carl Jacobson to see if he wanted to do another collaboration with me. Since he sent me something rare and beautiful (paint chips) I decided to return that favor by sending him something awful...
I've wanted to show the whole casting process for a while. It is a LONG process but I try and show you ALL the steps, including my math problems. I then sent this bowl blank up to Carl to have him turn it into something BEAUTIFUL!

the aluminum is so fine that it is very porous. your porosity is probably 90+%

Oz. By weight or volume?

Carrrrllllllllll, that kills people

The void ratio of the aluminum is huge, so while it might look like a lot, it's really not much. I'd say it's probably at least 80% air

Dude. Oz is not a measure of Volume, it’s a measure of weight. It can be used as volume if you are using the same substance in both measurements I.E water. But you used water for measuring the volume of the mold and then you were filling it with resin. They don’t have the same densities. This means that 75oz of water could take up 3/4 the space that 75oz of Resin does.

You also didn’t fill up the mold all the way when you measured the volume with water.

Think of the aluminum as the actual amount of foam in a foam brick. That is basically 85% air. Now think of the air bubbles inside foam as the resin. You’re going to use above 60 oz

An inner silicone positive would use up less material.

water weighs different from resin. this is why we measure in liters

Resin weighs more than water by volume.

lots of surface area on top of itself created structure but not a lot of volume.

Dude. 1) You should have filled the corners of you box with something. 2) You didn't fill the mold fully 3)you splashed water out dumping it into the bucket and 4) You should have put a big filler in the center right at the beginning and measured its volume.

Could you have poured the resin between the bowl an the walls of acrylic then carved it out of that cast ?

if you pour from as high as possible you wont get bubbles

How much does it shrink when it cures? Maybe that explains it.

if you throw your resin shavings away, dont. save them and mix them with more fresh resin in a mold.

The mold was done of the out side of the bowl not the inside so it's going to be bigger

Peter fantastic idea 💡 ALL the greatest things made throughout history was achieved through trial and error, I think the outcome is wonderful, Thank your wife, I love the metal with the black 🖤 it's BOLD and unique, I think because of the larger density difference of water and syrup meant you needed more resin as it slowly dripped down while leveling itself out as they don't weigh the same. What's important was the result, a excellent striking and good design.☺️👍👌Good Job.
