So last night I picked up the brooches so I could put them on the suits and take completed shots.

And realized that the E-6000 I was using to attach the pieces together…melted the paint, and warped the brooch. I forgot two very important things: 

  1. Resin heats up as it cures.
  2. E-6000 is part epoxy based. (aka resin)

And, of course, this couldn’t be something I noticed after doing the first two. No no, I noticed this after doing all four. So I’m currently in the process of redoing all four brooches.

Awesome.
