Free Juice??

There's an abandoned bottle of apple juice in the men's bathroom here at work. I don't know if someone forgot it, or if they're playing a prank...

PS The last one wasn't, but this one is a urine joke.

Silicone Rubber Cast
Posted in Hobbies
Forenoon watch, 2 bells (9:14 am)

Last night I made my first silicone rubber mold of an original, it turned out great! The Oomoo 25 took a little longer than 75 minutes to set (it was still pretty tacky), so I just left it overnight, and man is it good. I can see extremely fine details, even places where I (accidentally) left my fingerprint. I think it's going to be a very good casting material for the rest of our project. Bubbles introduced into the mixture from stirring would slowly work up to the surface as it was setting, and I can't see any evidence of bubbles in the mold anywhere, so it looks like they all seeped out before the silicone set. I hope the plastic resin is as good as the silicone.
