A small package from Young B Song arrived at my home earlier this week and upon careful unpacking revealed some pleasant surprises. Though I was supposed to be finishing the sculpt of another commission, the irresistible urge to start painting one of the package's contents made me swap my sculpting tools for paint brushes instead. The clean-up was pretty straight forward; with no cumbersome molding plugs to remove. This process was further quicken by applying heat to soften the resin via a heat-gun and carefully slicing it away with a fresh scalpel blade. This resulted in minimal sanding, no grinding plus one could even slice though an inch of solid resin like a hot knife through butter!
