Some of my shells.

 

First out Blue to Red to Green to dragonegg. Rolled them to different sizes to get some sort of ghost/rainbow effect. Next batch will get an extra mm. I like it.

Really excellent! Did you make a special effort to control solvent application when rolling? I feel like I always have problems with colorant migration between layers due to injudicious application of solvent!!

No not realy, just plain water whit 20% to 30% ethanol (For water bound stars). Letting them roll "extra" long between every scoop of star mix for a realy compact star, maybe that´s your problem? I think you have to got a lot of patience when rolling and not rushing them to grow.

You have definitely got it going on.


There are very few problems that cant be solved with explosives.
                             Explosives are a bang up job.

What do you use as a relay between colors? You have nice sharp color changes.

I didn´t use any relay on these shells gregh. I cant afford the "extra" space  whit changing relay on 3 inch shells whit 3 to 4 color changes.

Fckiam, that first shell the ghost/rainbow was pretty sweet. Thank ya very much for sharing. I wondered how they would turn out in such a small shell. The topic came up once on another forum and I opened my mouth and need to get it backed up and give me a try.

Thanks Boophoenix.

I dont know exactly what you mean. Is it about how i can fit that kind of stars in a 3inch?

Sorry fckiam. Darn iPad did some corrections on me.

The first ghost shell I ever saw and was a part of a conversation on I felt the mechanics of the stars simple and said so. Which probably didn't sit well since I had only ever built two shells at the time. One in a class Lloyd taught and the other a solo build. I had plans to give it a try in a 3 or 4 inch to prove myself right or wrong, but work and life got in the way. I feared such a small star in a small shell it might be difficult to present the effect well.

You've shown it can be done and does present fairly well so I guess in the coming months I need to get after it. Thank ya
