This is my casted 3x3x4! I would like to thank Dave for the masters and TomZ for designing this amazing puzzle. Yes this does need filling painting and sanding but I was too impatient to wait to make a video Let me know what you think!

Here it is; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sn9_E3bd ... annel_page
Thanks!,
Chris

Looks nice so far! :D The final result will depend on how much time you spend polishing.

Also, you might want to invest in some gloves... :wink:

Looks pretty nice. Now just get some gloves for next time and some wet/dry sandpaper to get rid of those little imperfections on the faces. Its not a lot of work considering the huge improvement it will make on the final puzzle.

Soap, water, and time. Mostly time ... usually a couple of days.
I don't wear gloves when I do my casting, but I still manage to keep mostly clean.

Go to any grocery or housewares store (BigLots, Walgreens, Target, etc.) and you should be able to find a box of gloves for under $5. I think I paid $4 for 100 (50 pair). It is a tiny investment. I reuse mine four or five times (until the starch inside is used up and they start to stick).

The times I did get a bit of resin on my fingers (after I took off the gloves, or in the process of taking off the gloves) I found that by getting soap on my hands immediately and scrubbing with a fingernail it came off just fine. The key is to keep soap on it so it can't re-stick, and to remember to then clean under your fingernail...

Dave
